  • How well do Priestmead children perform?

    We believe all our children need to be literate and numerate, but also motivated to become lifelong learners.

    We believe in an exciting, broad and inspirational curriculum to open minds and create generations of children willing to challenge the norm and be blue-sky thinkers.

    The DFE publishes attainment data and you can see ours below, along with a national comparison.  Priestmead children perform above national average from Reception through to Y6, often performing in the top 10% of schools.
