A primary school in Feltham has raced to the top of the 2015 SATs performance table.
Pupils in Year 6 at Edward Pauling Primary School on Redford Close, Feltham, proved to be among the best achievers in reading, writing and maths with 100% of its 11-year-olds reaching or exceeding the government’s benchmark level 4 in all three areas at Key Stage 2.
The league table also revealed the school had the highest value added score (104.4) meaning its pupils aged between 7 to 11 progressed better than expected.
The recent results add to the school’s growing success, with its latest Ofsted inspection carried out in December 2014 and published in January this year revealing an outstanding status.

“I want to congratulate Team Edward Pauling for their excellent hard work, dedication and commitment to securing exceptional outcomes for all our pupils.
“We Love School!”
