More than half of pupils at 31 primary schools in Salisbury are meeting the expected standard in education, recent data shows. 

The primary school league tables have been released based on the SATs results from 2023. 

It is the first time the Government has released primary school performance data since the Covid outbreak.

The figures show how well schools performed in the SATs exams and also reflect progress made while children are at primary school.

Our Year 6 primary school pupils sit the exams in the summer before they move on to secondary school.

These tests, alongside teacher assessments of English writing and science, are used to measure school performance and to make sure pupils have the support that they need.

We took a look at the data, which was released last month, to see how schools in and around Salisbury, Amesbury and Tidworth are ranked. 

Take a look at the table below, and use the search function to find your child's primary school. 

The top performing school was Winterbourne Earls Church of England Primary School, an Ofsted-graded good school, where 81 per cent reached the required standard for reading, writing and maths. Just five per cent of pupils are reaching the higher standard. 

This is followed by Downton CofE VA Primary School and St. Peter's CE Primary Academy where 78 per cent of pupils have met the required standard at both schools. At the two schools, 22 per cent of pupils are also reaching the higher standard. 

Bemerton St. John is the third top-performing school, with 77 per cent of pupils reaching the standard for reading, writing and maths. Seven per cent of pupils are achieving a higher standard.
