Best ever SATs results at Harris Primary Academies Coleraine Park and Philip Lane
The two Harris Primary Academies in Tottenham have significantly improved the academic standards reached by their Year 6 pupils.
Along with children all over the country, pupils in their final year at the two Academies took their SATs tests in May this year. The results show that significantly more children in the Academies than ever before are now reaching national standards in reading, writing and maths.
77% of children at both Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park and Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane reached national standards in all three subjects. At Coleraine Park, this is an increase on last year’s figure of 70% and at Philip Lane results have increased from 69%.
Ms Kirstie Fulthorpe, Principal of Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane, said:
“I am incredibly proud of all our pupils and staff, who have worked hard all year. Our Year 6 have been fantastic role models for our younger children and it is fantastic to know that we are sending them off to secondary school in September with the skills in literacy and numeracy that they need to thrive.”
Ms Joanne Taylor, Principal of Harris Primary Academy Coleraine Park, added:
“Our Year 6 children were delighted when they found out their results, which reflect their hard work and effort at school. We have put in place lots of improvements and teachers have worked to ensure children feel motivated by every single lesson. I would also like to thank our parents and carers for the vital support and encouragement they have given their children.”
Both Academies opened in September 2012, replacing schools that had been placed into Special Measures by Ofsted. Earlier this summer, Philip Lane was inspected by Ofsted and judged to be Good with Outstanding features.
