Key Stage 2 results in Havering’s primary schools have increased by 10per cent (pc) from last year and are now higher than the national average.

Data published by the Department for Education (DfE) shows the average score for reading, writing and maths combined increased to 72pc from 62pc in 2016 - well above the national average of 61pc.

Councillor Robert Benham, cabinet member for children and learning, said the results were a “fantastic achievement” for the borough’s primary school pupils and staff.

“The strong result reinforces Havering Council’s commitment to improving education in the borough,” said Mr Benham.

“The result could not have been achieved without the dedication of headteachers, staff, pupils and governors.

“The figures highlight improvement not only in the borough but also illustrate how Havering is performing against the national average.

“In the borough 91pc of primary school children are attending either an outstanding or good school.”
