SUTTON Veny Primary School has been nationally recognised for its exceptional performance last year by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT).

Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has revealed that children’s attainment at KS2 in reading, writing and maths at the school is in the top 10 per cent of all schools nationally.

This has enabled children to make progress in those three areas which is significantly higher than the national average.

Headteacher Miss Rachael Brotherton said: “We were delighted to hear the news that the school had won two national awards.

“This is testimony to the hard work of the children, staff, governors and parents. We are all so proud of our thriving village school and aim to continue our success."

The SSAT is the company founded from the former Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in May 2012 and its aim is to helps teachers and leaders to collaborate meaningfully with other schools.

Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT, said: “It’s my great pleasure to commend Sutton Veny School on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration event.

“I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

“I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Sutton Veny School.

“Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Sutton Veny School on their achievement.”
