How are Atherton schools performing?

Atherton primary school performance:

The Atherton area has 50 primary schools (one of the top being St Ambrose Barlow Catholic Primary School with 27% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“This is an outstanding school which prepares pupils exceptionally well for the next stage of their education. Attainment is high and achievement and enjoyment are outstanding. These outstanding outcomes are due to the impact of excellent levels of care, guidance and support, high quality teaching and excellent leadership by the headteacher who is very ably supported by the deputy headteacher. Partnerships with parents and carers are very productive and their engagement in school life is outstanding. They are virtually unanimous in their support of the school which is reported to give everyone in the school community a sense of belonging. ”

The Atherton local authority has an average of 67% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 11% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).
