New data published by Department for Education has revealed primary schools in Havering that have performed the best and worst in 2022-23.

The school performance data for the academic year gives a progress score to the primary school pupils based on their reading, writing and mathematical abilities.

It also shares the percentage of primary school students meeting expected standards in the schools, and the proportion that are achieving at a higher standard.

Pupils are said to be “meeting the standards” if they get a scaled score of 100 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teachers assess them as such in writing.

However, DfE has issued a disclaimer that the data should be used with caution given the ongoing impacts of Covid-19 that affected individual schools and pupils differently.

The data, it added, should be considered alongside a range of other information about the school, which could include looking at school websites, reading Ofsted reports, and speaking to the school directly.
