Sats results reveal rise and fall of Barking and Dagenham primary schools
Exam results released today show the rise and fall of primary and junior schools in the borough.
Figures from the Department for Education put the borough on par with the national average for number of pupils achieving the required level in reading, writing and maths for their Year 6 Sats tests.
But a comparison with last year’s results show huge leaps forward for some schools while others have fallen behind.
The biggest improvement came from Thomas Arnold Primary School, Rowdowns Road, Dagenham, who jumped up 22 percentage points from last year to 71 per cent.
Godwin Primary School, Finnymore Road, Dagenham, also climbed by 21 percentage points from just 57pc to end up above the national average on 78pc.
