The top west Suffolk school this year is Elveden Primary Academy which celebrated its best ever results.

The Church of England school, which transferred to an academy in 2013, is the seventh best in the county for students reaching Level 4 or better in reading, writing and maths.

Every one of the 10 children who studied Key Stage 2 in the summer got the Level 4 – with more than 60% reaching Level 5.

Lorna Rourke and April Grimes, joint headteachers, paid tribute to the children who took the tests and also commended staff for their efforts.

They are the school’s best ever results since it expanded as part of the School Organisation Review which is closing middle schools in the county.

In a statement they said: “We would like to congratulate the children and staff for all their hard work and thank their families for the continued support they have shown throughout the year, which makes all the difference.

“This, along with the continued partnership with Forest Academy in Brandon, meant that we were able to benefit from specialised teaching and support.”
