St John's Receives Letter of Congratulations from Government
St John's has received a letter of congratulations from the Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP, Secretary of State for Education, and the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards. Our school placed in the top 3% of schools in the country for progress in reading, writing and mathematics in the latest results as of December 2018.
Below is the full text of the letter:
"Dear Mrs Borlase,
We would like to congratulate you, your staff and your pupils on the very high level of progress that pupils in your school demonstrated in the reading, writing and mathematics Key Stage 2 assessments last year.
Your school's results, as published on 12 December, show progress scores of 3.2, 3.4 and 3.8 in English reading, writing and mathematics respectively. This means that in terms of the progress your pupils make between Key Stage 1 and the end of Key Stage 2, your school is amongst the top 3% of schools in England.
We want to equip every child with the fluency in reading, writing and mathematics necessary to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this.
Thank you for producing such high standards through your hard work and professionalism, and congratulations again to you and your staff for all you have achieved."
