EIGHT primary schools in Croydon are failing according to league tables released today. Figures released by the Department for Education (DfE) show none of the borough's primaries feature in the country's top 1,000 schools for the Sats tests taken by 11-year-olds last summer. Eight schools have failed to meet the government target of at least 60 per cent of pupils achieving a level 4 in reading, writing and maths. In English, level 4 means pupils can spell properly, use joined-up handwriting and start using complex sentences. In maths, pupils need to be able to use percentages and fractions and divide and multiply by 10 and 100. They include Winterbourne Junior Boys' School, in Thornton Heath, as well as Wolsey Junior and Castle Hill primaries in New Addington. High fliers in the Sats tests are given a level 5. Hayes Primary School came top in this category with 45 per cent of its pupils achieving the higher level. Wolsey Junior School came bottom with only 2 per cent of pupils achieving a level 5. All schools were also given an average score which assigned points to each level with level 2 or below scoring 15 and level 6 scoring 39. In this category, Keston Primary School came top with an average score of 31 and Castle Hill Primary School coming last with 24.8. South Norwood Primary School had their results annulled after an administration error in September.Schools that failed to make the grade They are: - Winterbourne Junior Boys' School, 45 pupils, 36 per cent - Wolsey Junior School, 81 pupils - 41 per cent - Castle Hill Primary School, 39 pupils - 44 per cent - Broadmead Primary School, 76 pupils, - 51 per cent - Wattenden Primary School, 26 pupils - 58 per cent - Kingsley Primary School, 82 pupils - 59 per cent - Ryelands Primary School, 49 pupils - 59 per cent - St Mark's CofE Primary School, 29 pupils - 59 per cent.Croydon's top primaries - Whitehorse Manor Junior School, 55 pupils - 95 per cent - St Cyprian's Greek Orthodox Primary School, 53 pupils - 94 per cent - Keston Primary School, 59 pupils - 93 per cent - St John's CofE Primary School, 29 pupils - 93 per cent - Fairchildes Primary School, 59 pupils - 93 per cent - Courtwood Primary School, 28 pupils - 93 per cent - West Thornton Primary School, 89 pupils - 92 per cent - Rockmount Primary School, 55 pupils - 91 per cent - Kenley Primary School, 22 pupils - 91 per cent - Beaumont Primary School, 21 pupils - 90 per cent
