Percentage of 14 year old pupils in schools maintained by the local education authority achieving Level 5 or above in the Key Stage 3 test in English.
Performance in 2006-07
Our target was 77.00.
We achieved 72.00.
"Bigger is better" so we are worse than target.
When we compare our 2006-07 results with the latest results (2005-06) for other metropolitan councils, we are in the mid range.
Performance is worse than last year.
Comments on our performance in 2006-07
In 2006 achievement in English at Key Stage 3 was slightly below the national average at 72% compared to 73%. However many schools had continued concern about the quality and consistency of marking and have returned whole sets of exam scripts for re-marking.
