ATL comment on key stage 2 statistics
Commenting on the latest key stage 2 assessment statistics, Nansi Ellis, assistant general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), said:
“This year’s excellent key stage 2 results are a credit to all of our hard-working children and their dedicated parents and teachers.
“It is disappointing that the gaps in gender achievement remain persistent, with girls continuing to significantly out-perform boys in most areas. More must be done to close this gap so that all children achieve their potential.
“From this year new key stage 2 assessments are being introduced. We hope the Government ensures children, their families and teachers are given the support they need to make sure that no children are disadvantaged by the upheaval.”
