Staff and pupils of a school which last year was in special measures are celebrating after gaining fantastic Key Stage 2 results.
Meadow Community Primary School in Balsham was last July in the bottom of the class and one of the reasons was the poor SATS results (Year 6 tests).
This year the tests showed a dramatic improvement from 85 per cent to 100 per cent in reading at level 4+ and maths soaring from 65 percent to 91 per cent/
Writing has improved from 71 per cent to 91 per cent.
Head teacher Nicola Connor puts the success down to the parents and community getting right behind the school, giving support.
She said: “We are incredibly proud of all of our children who have worked incredibly hard to achieve these fantastic figures.
“The teachers have worked tirelessly to refine and tweak the way they teach lessons and we have provided booster and intervention groups to support this.
“We hold six weekly progress meetings to check individual children’s progress and plan for further support if needed.
“Our School Improvement Adviser from the Local Authority has supported us all of the way and the involvement of Linton Village College through the Chilford Hundred Education Trust which we joined in April has also been very beneficial, with teachers from the maths department being deployed to support booster groups.
“For the first time ever we ran an Easter School to offer extra lessons for children who potentially were at risk of not achieving to their full potential.
“These children all attained a level 4+.”
