Holy Family RC Primary School, Stoke Lodge, Patchway, Bristol.

Primary schools in Patchway registered mixed performances in the 2012 Key Stage 2 (KS2) tests, the results of which were published recently.

Holy Family led the field locally with the highest percentage of pupils achieving the expected level in both maths and English (94%, compared to an average of 79% for all state-funded schools in South Gloucestershire).

Holy Family also achieved a good result for the ‘added value’ measure, which looks at how much progress pupils have made between the end of Key Stage 1 (infants) and the end of Key Stage 2 (juniors), placing it 4th out of 82 schools in South Gloucestershire.

St Chads (87%) and Stoke Lodge (85%) both returned above-average scores for maths and English but Coniston (59%) and Callicroft (48%) were well below the local authority average, with Callicroft’s score placing it in the bottom 200 schools in the country, according to The Bristol Post.

Coniston fared much better on the ‘added value’ score, where it came 25th out of the 82 schools in South Gloucestershire.

In their most recent Ofsted inspections, Patchway’s primary schools were all ranked “satisfactory” or above. St Chad’s was rated “outstanding” in 2010, while Stoke Lodge and Holy Family were rated “good” in 2011 and 2012 respectively.

    That logo on the right of the Holy Family sign looks an awful lot like a gasmask.
