The Minister of State for School Standards has congratulated Grasby staff and pupils on being in the top two percent nationally in maths.

Key stage two pupils at Grasby Primary School have rocketed to the top with a ‘high standard’ of attainment in mathematics - which puts them in the top two per cent of primary schools in the country.

In a letter to the school, Minister Nick Gibb MP said: “I would like to congratulate your staff and your pupils for the very high standard that pupils in your school have achieved in the 2016 mathematics key stage two assessments.

“Your school’s results show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the the expected standard in mathematics at the end of key stage two.

“This means that your school is in the top two per cent of primary schools in England for attainment in mathematics.”

Staff and pupils are delighted with the results - and the letter.

Class teacher Angela Rowlands said:“It is wonderful that the children have worked so hard to be recognised in this way.

“Maths is only a part of the all round experience that the children receive at Grasby Primary School.

“Non-core subjects such as Music and PE are also highly valued.”

Key stage 2 pupil George Watson said: ““It’s great that I can be a pupil at this school as it makes me feel proud!”
