Mr Gibb thanked the school’s staff and pupils for their hard work and professionalism, while reflecting on the importance of achieving such high standards:

“We want to ensure that every child has the necessary fluency in reading, writing and mathematics to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this,” he said.

Councillor Evelyn Carpenter, Cabinet Member for Educational Attainment and School Improvement, added:

“It is good to see The Leys Primary School getting the recognition that it deserves after an impressive set of Key Stage 2 results.

“This is yet another example of the work being done to improve educational standards throughout Barking and Dagenham. Many congratulations to the dedicated headteacher, staff team and hard-working pupils.”
