The best and worst performing primary schools in the Black Country have been revealed.
Manor Primary School in Coseley came out on top following the release of the latest Key Stage 2 results, as nearly all pupils - 97 per cent - met the expected standard in core subjects this year.
At the end of year 6, pupils take national curriculum assessments, more commonly known as SATs, which cover reading, maths, grammar, punctuation and spelling.
They must also complete a teacher assessment in reading, writing, maths and science.
To reach the expected standard, pupils must achieve a scaled score of 100 or more in their reading and maths tests, as well as being judged to be either 'reaching the expected standard' or 'working at greater depth' in the writing teacher assessment.
Another school that performed particularly well was St Bartholomew’s Church of England Primary School in Wolverhampton, where 96 per cent of youngsters met the expected standard.
Meanwhile, Our Lady and St Hubert's Catholic Primary School in Oldbury saw 36 per cent of student achieve a high score in reading, writing and maths, which meant they scored 110 or more in their tests and an outcome of ‘working at greater depth’ in their writing teacher assessment.
This was the highest proportion in the whole of the Black Country.
St Bartholomew's Church of England Primary School in Wolverhampton also performed well as 33 per cent of pupils achieved a high score in their assessments.
Other schools with a high proportion of pupils achieving a high score in their assessments included Our Lady and St Hubert's Catholic Primary School in Oldbury (29 per cent) and Greenfield Primary School in Stourbridge (23 per cent).
At the other end of the scale, Northwood Park Primary School in Wolverhampton, was the worst performing school in the Black Country, where not a single pupil met expected levels of reading, writing and maths.
Also performing badly were All Saints National Academy in Walsall (19 per cent), Bloxwich Academy in Walsall (27 per cent), Tameside Primary School in Wednesbury (30 per cent) and Rufford Primary School in Stourbridge (30 per cent).
