MMore than 82 per cent of pupils in Chafford Hundred are reaching the expected Level 4 in reading, writing and maths in their final year at primary school.

Meanwhile Harris Academy Secondary, in Mayflower Road, has been named one of the top 100 performing non-selective state schools in England.

Tudor Court Primary in Bark Burr Road saw 84 per cent of pupils attaining level 4, the expected national standard in league tables published by the government.

Harris Primary Academy in Mayflower Road and Warren Primary in Gilbert Road both saw 82 per cent of pupils reaching the expected level.

As well as a high percentage of Harris Academy secondary pupils achieving five or more A*-C grades including English and maths at GCSE, the school was awarded a £5,000 prize by the Department for Education because it is one of the highest achieving schools in the country in terms of the attainment and value-added progress of its pupils from more disadvantaged backgrounds.

Cllr John Kent, Thurrock Council Leader and educational portfolio holder, said that despite changes in the national measures which saw many local authorities and schools face a drop in their performance compared to the previous year, Thurrock saw a rise in the percentage of children hitting the benchmark.

He said: “Even better is that three-quarters of pupils here are making at least

the expected progress compared with just a third nationally. thschool was awarded a £5,000 prize by the Department for Education because it is one of the highest achieving schools in the country in terms of the attainment and value-added progress of its pupils from more disadvantaged backgrounds.
