Primary schools in Brent have improved on their teaching of reading, writing and mathematics, according to the latest figures.

Data released by the Department of Education shows 80 per cent of 11-year-olds at the borough’s primary schools achieved a good standard in the three Rs this year.

The government target is 65 per cent.

Wykeham Primary School in Aboyne Road, Neasden, topped the borough’s league table, with 100 per cent of children achieving Level 4 or above.

St Joseph’s RC Primary School in Goodson Road, Harlesden, also scored 100 per cent and was ranked a close second.

Nationally, the number of primaries failing to give their pupils a good grounding in the three Rs has remained static this year, despite schools facing tougher government targets,

To meet government standards, schools must ensure that at least 65 per cent of 11-year-olds reach Level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics, and meet national averages in pupil progress.

Schools are ranked according to percentage of pupils achieving Level 4 in reading, writing and mathematics.
