Results show Key Stage 1 improvements
THE latest test results for six- and seven-year-olds in reading, writing and maths show results in Bristol are continuing to improve.
Figures released by the Department of Education have confirmed progress for the city's schools in all three subjects.
Provisional Key Stage 1 results show the percentage of children reaching the level expected for their age is 87 per cent in reading (compared with 83 per cent last year), 82 per cent in writing (79 per cent in 2011) and 90 per cent in maths (88 per cent in 2011).
Performance is also strong compared to other big cities in England, with Bristol scoring higher than other cities in all three areas.

At the earliest stage of primary education, the first year of results for phonics tests for five- and six-year-olds reveal Bristol primary schools are ahead of the national picture. Some 60 per cent of pupils reached the required standard, compared with 58 per cent nationally.
The cabinet councillor responsible for education, Clare Campion-Smith, said: "Bristol schools are celebrating improved exam and test results at all levels this year.
"But for me, the improvements at the earliest stages of primary school are particularly good news. If children get off to a good start in the core subjects of reading, writing and maths, it gives them the building blocks for success in other subjects as they continue through school. We hope the success of children at this stage will feed into further improvement for Bristol schools.
"All involved in education in Bristol are determined to work together to continue to raise standards for children in the city. These latest figures show we are moving in the right direction. Congratulations to everyone whose hard work has contributed to delivering these positive results."
