Letter from the Minister of State for Schools Standards

This is another huge achievement for the school! 
Please see below, a letter from the Minister of State for Schools Standards, the Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP.


Dear Mrs Roberts,

I would like to congratulate you, your staff and your pupils on the very high standard of achievement demonstrated in the writing and mathematics Key Stage 2 assessments last year.

Your school's results, as published on 13 December, show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the expected standard in writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. This means that for achievement in writing and mathematics, Middleton Primary School is in the top 1 per cent of primary schools in the country.

The Government wants to ensure that every child has the fluency in writing and mathematics necessary to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, which is why I was delighted to see your results.

Thank you for your work in continuing the drive towards higher academic standards, and congratulations again to you and your staff for your commitment and success.

With  best wishes. 


Yours sincerely 


Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP
Minister of State for School Standards
