BAY Primary School is celebrating after achieveing its best test results in recent years.

In the annual SATs - Standard Assessment Tests - year six pupils at Bay have improved on every level to record the school’s best overall results since before 2008.

A particular cause for celebration is the percentage of children achieving writing level four or above has risen to 75% - a huge increase over the previous year’s 38%.

The percentage of children who reached level four in english rose from 67% last year to its current 75% and 79% of children achieved level four in maths compared to 59% in 2010.

Headteacher Emma Hobbs is delighted with the results which lead to the school receiving a personal letter of congratulations from Alison Michalska, the director of children, family and education services East Riding Council.

Mrs Hobbs said: “We are extremely proud of the achievements of our children and staff this year.

“We are a school which sets high expectations for everyone and our improved results have shown that we are reaping the rewards of all our hard work.

“Back in September we set our children very challenging targets and I’m very pleased to say that we exceeded them.

“As our Ofsted report stated we are a rapidly improving school, and that is because we focus on excellent teaching and learning and everyone at Bay Primary School is committed to enabling our children to achieve success.”
