A co-operative primary school in Liskeard, Cornwall, part of the Liskeard Co-operative Learning Trust, has received notification from an MP that it is one of the top 105 performing primary schools in England on the similar schools measure in the 2012 School Performance Tables. The tables compare schools with near-identical intakes, as judged by their Key Stage 1 attainment.
Menheniot Primary School was ranked number one in its table, and more than 20 per cent more students received a Level 4 in English and maths than is typical of its intake.
David Laws MP congratulated staff, students, governors and leadership for their hard work, saying: “This is a fantastic achievement that you should be very proud of.”
Mr Laws added that he hoped Menheniot would continue to work with other schools, both in the area and further away, to share its achievements.
