Hackney's outstanding children leading the country
Hackney is ranked number 1 local authority in England for Key Stage 1 for reading, writing and maths!
The Department of Education (DfE) issued their 2016 report looking at Key Stage 1 on Thursday, 29 September 2016. Key Stage 1 measures outcomes at the end of Year 2, when typically children are seven years old.
This is the first time the new, more challenging national curriculum has been assessed since it was introduced in 2014. The report shows that Hackney is ranked first in England for children reaching the expected standard for reading, writing and maths.
Hackney pupils eligible for free school meals and those with an Education Health Care Plan are also ranked in the top five in the country for all of the three core subjects.
These figures represent an outstanding set of results for Hackney in every measure.
Deputy Mayor and Cabinet member for Children’s Service, Cllr Anntoinette Bramble said: “I am delighted to see these results, which is down to the hard work of Hackney's children, parents/guardians and teachers. "We aim to give every child the best start in life and these figures along with the success at Key Stage 2 give me the confidence we are doing just that. "Congratulations and well done to everyone."
