Our children make outstanding progress

National performance data for all schools was published in Autumn 2016.  We are delighted to learn that data for our school shows that at King Edward Primary, our children make outstanding progress.  Our children make progress which is significantly better than national average progress between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  We are one of only 5 schools in North Tyneside to make outstanding progress in reading, writing and maths between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2!  Progress in some areas is in the top 5% nationally.


Our outcomes at Early Years Foundation Stage and in the Year 1 phonics check are also outstanding, alongside Key Stage 1 children making very strong progress overall from the end of Early Years Foundation Stage to the end of Key Stage 1!

Attendance of our pupils is also outstanding and in the top 10% of all schools nationally.  We have the joint highest attendance of all primary, first and middle schools in North Tyneside.

This confirms our continued trend of strong outcomes for our children.  In December 2014 we learnt that our Year 6 children made more progress between Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 than any other primary school in North Tyneside and that meant our Key Stage 2 outcomes were the second strongest in the whole North East region.  As a result Miss Byrne received a letter from the Minister for Education, please click on the link (Letter from Minister for Education) which informed us that our fantastic performance meant that our school was ranked within the top 100 schools nationally for pupils progress.  This letter and ranking recognised the outstanding efforts that continue to be made by all of the school staff and children to achieve this.  We are very proud of the achievements of our children and we continue to work hard with our children and parents to make sure our children are enabled to achieve and be the very best they can be.
