Cllr Janet Walton, cabinet member for children and families at Poole, said she was “concerned” about the borough’s key stage 2 results, which were “very disappointing”.

“Borough of Poole is a small authority and this can make a real difference in numbers so that if one or two of our schools do not do as well as they had predicted, it has a huge impact on our overall results,” she said.

“We will continue to work very closely with all our primary schools and governing bodies to ensure that the necessary improvements are made in our overall achievement as judged by the national Key Stage 2 tests in 2014.”

Bournemouth council cabinet member for education Nicola Greene said the figures showed a steady improvement in results across the borough.

“Bournemouth primary results have improved year on year in 2013 and we have achieved the highest ever results at the end of all key stages,” she said.

“At the end of key stage 2 the proportion of children achieving a least level 4 in reading, writing and maths shows improvement from previous years and is similar to the national average.

“We are pleased with the children’s progress, especially in writing where results are significantly improved and are four per cent higher than the year before.

“We continue to make good progress in the borough working in partnership with schools to ensure children receive the best possible start in life.”

Toni Coombs, Dorset County Council Cabinet member for education, said: "We are delighted that 98% of our schools are above the national floor standard for reading, writing and maths. We are working with our schools to ensure that they all achieve at levels above this floor standard.

“However, our headteachers, governors and the county council are fully aware that we still have some way to go to be among the top flight of Local Authorities nationally. We will strive to achieve this by continuing to work extremely hard so that we can attain the highest standards.”

Why don't Jewel and Queens Park Academies have scores? When I applied to those schools for my daughter, Jewel didn't even come up as being in our catchment area as "it's an Academy rather than a school" but Queens Park is an Acandemy too. It's confusing!

How can you measure a school with 23 pupils in percentage terms and then compare it to a school with 101.

Percentages have no relevance unless the samples are all broadly similar in size and exceed 100.

if the government spent more time concentrating on allowing teachers to teach pupils rather than trying to make their school the best then there would be alot of pupils leaving school with an education. there is to much emphasis on trying to get a school to be the best and the teachers panicking over league tables rather than what the pupils need to be taught. i agree no parent wants their child to go to a 'badly taught' school but the pupils and teachers are now a league table rather than people.

Looks as though certain people can't understand how to work out these tables?
I was always told to read ALL information provided before making judgements on these type of things. ALWAYS read the small print!
