At Writhlington there has been a pleasing climb in the attainment of pupils, particularly in English and maths. The key measure of a 4+ in both English and Maths is now at close to 70% with 5+ in both English and Maths at over 40%. Humanities subjects, often seen as some of the most challenging academically, have performed well too, with progress measures suggesting children have exceeded national targets set. Overall, there has been a great deal of improvement, something the school will aim to build on over the coming years to ensure it is once again graded ‘good’ by OFSTED.
Mark Everett Headteacher said
“It has been a difficult year for the school, but so many children have performed well and are able to go on to their next phase of education or training. Whilst we have not yet solved all the issues facing the school, there is a definite and tangible improvement being seen. This is clearly evidenced by over half of our students securing a positive progress 8 score.”
