Offwell School’s 2016 key stage assessments in reading have received ministerial recognition.
The Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards, has written to the school to congratulate pupils.
Dr Phillip Ambler, chairman of school governors, said: “I am always proud of the achievements of our children, but it can be particularly pleasing when these efforts are publicly recognised.
“In his letter to Mrs Billington (headteacher), Mr Gibb says our school ‘is in the top one per cent of primary schools in England for achievement in reading’.
“Further, he recognises that Offwell has ensured that all their children have ‘the necessary fluency in reading to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond’.
“I am fully aware of how hard the staff and children work to produce good results of such a high standard.”
