Seven-year-old pupils in Derbyshire are outperforming schools throughout the country in national tests.

Students at Key Stage 1 achieved above average results in reading, writing, maths and science at expected levels, early figures show.

Pupils significantly outperform national results in higher levels. At Level 2B+ pupils are almost 4% above the national average in reading and 5% above in writing and maths.

Councillor Mike Longden, DCC’s Cabinet Member for Education, has welcomed the results.
