Peterborough MP Stewart Jackson: These results are an embarrassment
Last week’s shockingly poor Key Stage 2 SATs results must be a wake-up call for all of us in the city: The city council, city councillors, MPs, academies, teachers, parents, governors, we all need to acknowledge the gravity of the situation: Bottom of the pile across the whole of England. The results for boys was appalling with just 35% reaching national standards. No other local authority slipped below 42%. Frankly, it’s an embarrassment.
