Croydon's primary school league table revealed, Heavers Farm results still missing


A PRIMARY school under investigation by the Department for Education has still to receive this summer's exam results despite league tables being published by the government.

Heavers Farm, in South Norwood, had its SATs scores withheld by the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) earlier this year following alleged discrepancies in what the school has said is a small number of papers.

The Advertiser understands the inquiry has been delayed due the high number of investigations the STA is undertaking following this year's exams.

Head teacher Susan Papas, who had hoped for a resolution before the end of November, is 1in charge at Selsdon Primary, where results are also been scrutinised following accusations that a teacher helped pupils during the exam process. Its results, however, have been published this week.

Mrs Papas said: "We fully expect to get the results back for both schools and are extremely frustrated that the process has taken so long.

"The STA does not publish guidelines on how long they take to respond so we have no way of knowing when this situation is likely to be resolved."

This week's league tables provide few surprises because the unvalidated results - some of which were subject to appeal - were published in Gavin Barwell MP's manifesto in September.

The finalised results show that, as reported by the Advertiser at the time, eleven schools fell below the government's minimum expectation of at least 65 per cent of pupils achieving level 4 in English and maths.

The table reveals the borough maintained its 2013 standard, with 74 per cent of pupils meeting the benchmark.

Ryelands Primary School, in South Norwood, posted the lowest results in the borough, with 40 per cent. The school has since become part of the Oasis Community Learning group and is making progress, head Diana Morgan said in November.

Croydon's top performing primary was New Valley, where every pupil met the required level, but Fairchildes, Beaumont, Harris Academy Kenley and a number of other schools did impressively.

Oasis Community Learning said its Byron academy, in Coulsdon, has achieved results in the top one per cent in the country based on pupil progress, joint top in Croydon and 78th out of 22,000 primary schools nationwide.
