The staff, governors and especially the parents from a primary school is East Sussex are celebrating yet another great year after achieving an excellent in the Standard Assessment Tests.

Year six pupils from Dallington Church of England primary school, who took their SATS tests back in July, achieved 100% in English at the 4+ level, and 93% in Maths at the same level. All of the results came in well over the national average, putting Dallington amongst the top 12% of schools across the country.

Headteacher Shirley Frankis said: “We are all very delighted at these results which are down to the hard work of the pupils, teachers and parents.

“As well as doing so well academically, our Year 6 group of pupils was a credit to the school in many other ways.  They took part in many sporting and creative activities with other local schools including the Heathfield Schools’ Olympic Event in June.

“Every one of the pupils made a significant contribution to daily life at the school and they are sorely missed.  All involved with the school wish them well for the next phase of their education.”
