The results are in – and this is how Blackpool’s primary schools have scored in this year’s league tables.

Year six pupils in the resort are performing better than average according to figures published by Ofsted.

The results – which show how the schools compare in terms of pupil progress by the end of key stage two – back up a warning from Ofsted to headteachers across the country not to blame deprivation for poor standards.

The education watchdog published a list of more than 100 schools that have consistently underperformed for more than a decade, which did not include a single Blackpool school.

And despite having some of the most deprived wards in the country, the resort’s primary school achievement levels are above the national average.

Amanda Spielman, Ofted’s chief inspector, said: “Schools with all ranges of children can and do succeed.”

“Progress is possible and we should all be wary of using the make-up of a school community as an excuse for under-performance.

“I do find myself frustrated with the culture of ‘disadvantage one-upmanship’ that has emerged in some places.”

Blackpool’s primary schools have improved consistently in recent years, and more than 96 per cent of pupils at that level now attend a school rated ‘good’ or better.

And while the resort’s secondary schools still lag behind, as reported in The Gazette yesterday, Blackpool Council has joined teachers in the resort saying they will catch up in time as efforts to improve children’s opportunities from a young age filter up the age ranges.

Coun Kathryn Benson, cabinet member for schools and learning at Blackpool Council, said: “The journey that we are on, collectively across Blackpool is seeing significant successes.

“With 96.9% of Blackpool pupils attending a good or better primary or special school, this will translate into significant improvements in GCSE outcomes over the next few years.

“We have laid the foundations and as we improve the education that our children receive at all stages, we will see results at GCSE level in Blackpool rise.”

The resort was last year named among a group of new ‘opportunity areas’ by the Government. The scheme, welcomed by local teachers, vowed to ensure ‘no child is left behind’ and pledged Government cash to help drive up standards in Blackpool schools.
