The 10 worst performing primary schools in Blackpool according to government figures
These are the worst performing primary schools in Blackpool according to new government figures.
These figures list the worst performing 10 primary schools in the Blackpool area organised by 'the percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard', from the lowest first. All taken from Department for Education website on December 13, and the full list can be read here. In the original version of this story, Stanley Primary School was incorrectly listed as the ninth worst performing school in Blackpool. The lists were based on government figures per area, not education authority, meaning two Blackpool schools classed by the government as ‘Thornton Cleveleys’ were missed off. We apologise unreservedly for the error.
