As indicated in the table, 73% of Nook Lane pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths (combined). We are delighted with these results.

To put this in context of national outcomes, 64% of children in the country achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths (combined). This was an increase from the previous year's national figure of 61%.

It is worth noting that whilst more children nationally are meeting the expected standard compared with last year, over a third of the Year 6 children in the country have not yet met the more exacting standards in all three core areas.

Our main priorities this academic year in terms of improving pupils' outcomes have been to ensure significantly better Year 6 results at the expected standard in reading and maths than was the case last year. We have certainly achieved this with huge increases in the expected standard in reading (up 25%) and maths (up 18%).

We also aimed to increase the proportion of children working at the higher standard in maths which we have also achieved.

Well done to all children and teaching staff at Nook Lane for their hard work and commitment.

The school is extremely proud of its Integrated Resource and the children continue to make remarkable progress socially, emotionally and behaviourally. As there is a larger number of pupils than normal (five children in the IR in this year's Y6 cohort) this can impact upon the school's attainment data.

It may be helpful for parents to know how mainstream pupils' outcomes relate to national figures. The table below refers to the percentage of mainstream pupils reaching the expected standard or above compared with national results:
