Dear Parents & Carers,
I wanted to take this opportunity to write to you and share our exciting news with you all.
As lots of you will know, primary school league tables were released yesterday and published via the Evening Standard – see attached for Havering schools. You can also access the DfE Performance Tables via the school website – Learning/Assessment tabs.
As a school we have continued year on year to improve our results. This year, based on these tables, Suttons Primary was the fifth (5th) highest performing school in Havering last year for pupils achieving Level 4 and above in all three areas of Reading, Writing and Maths. In fact only one of our children (equalling 3%) did not achieve this in Mathematics by only a couple of marks. Had this happened we would have been 2nd in Havering, only slightly behind our nearest neighbours Scotts Primary.
As a school we are very proud of the achievements our pupils have made, which is only possible through good quality teaching and good quality learning opportunities.
