Results are still provisional but early indications show that the proportion of North Yorkshire pupils who have attained the national standard for reading, writing and mathematics at Key Stage 2 has increased by 3 per cent.

In the KS2 reading test and writing assessments, the proportion of pupils achieving the national standard has increased at a faster rate than schools have achieved nationally.

“These are very good results,” said County Councillor Patrick Mulligan, North Yorkshire’s Executive Member for Schools.  “They are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our pupils, teaching staff and families.  

“These are provisional results, but they show that North Yorkshire is a place where children can thrive, where they can give of their very best and where there is ambition to achieve the highest standards of teaching and learning.”
