Provisional results show there has been a 1% rise in results from last year where 62% of 11-year-old pupils met or exceeded the governments standards in reading, writing and maths.
This is a 7% rise since 2017.
National reading, writing and maths results for 2019 are 65% and since the new exam framework was introduced in 2016, West Sussex have improved its reading, writing and maths results by 17% against a national result of 11%.
“I am pleased to again see a rise in our SATs results across the age ranges and although we are still slightly below national figures, I’m encouraged that we continue to see improvements.
“This is all down to the hard work of pupils and the strong support they received from their schools.
“These improved results match the rise in the number of schoolchildren attending good and outstanding Ofsted-rated schools, the highest it’s been since 2016, as a result of our positive partnership-working with schools.”
Richard Burrett, West Sussex County Council
