Primary schools in Bridlington are mostly performing at or above the average in England according to a league table published today by the Department for Education.
The league table shows the percentages of Bridlington youngsters attaining a Level 4 or above in Reading, Writing and Maths at Key Stage Two, against the English average of 75% primary school students achieving the grade.
This year the top schools are Our Lady and St Peter Roman Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary School, which has 78% achieving a Level 4 and New Pasture Lane which has 79% of its pupils reaching the grade. However both schools show a decline from last year.
Martongate Primary School has improved on its standard since last year with 77% achieving Level 4 in the subjects, up from 70% last year. Also improving was Burlington Junior which reached the national average of 75% following 71% last year.
