Glenfrome flies high in school league tables
GLENFROME Primary School is officially number two in the Department for Education's list of the best schools in Bristol.
The DfE has just published new league tables for primary schools based on how pupils perform in Year 6 Sats test.
The results put Glenfrome, in Cottisford Road, Eastville, in second place, behind top performing Perry Court E-Act Academy in Hengrove.
The tables reveal 77 per cent of pupils at Glenfrome are meeting the expected standard, and performing above average in reading and maths.
The aim of the league tables is to ensure schools are held to account and to give parents a better idea of how schools in their area compare.
Tougher Sats tests were introduced in 2016 with many teachers calling for them to be abolished saying they put too much pressure on young children.
Headteacher Inger O'Callaghan welcomed the news, saying staff at the school work hard to make the curriculum as exciting as possible for pupils.
“We are delighted that the hard work of our staff and children has been recognised.
“Glenfrome is a community and we are really proud of the efforts all our children make to do their very best. We try to ensure our curriculum is inspiring and engaging, and our parents are also really supportive of this.”
