Motion text

That this House congratulates the seven year olds of Wales on the results of their tests and applauds the fact that almost 80 per cent. of pupils attained level 2 or above. that within this 13.5 per cent. achieved the highest level, level 3; and notes that the sciences results were particularly encouraging with almost 90 per cent. of pupils achieving the two highest levels, recognises that these results represent an excellent dividend from the Government's significant investment in the development of science at the primary level; compliments the seven year olds' teachers, their schools and local education authorities on working to make the computer-based reporting of these results such a success and above all else pays tribute to the professionalism of the teachers in Wales who not only completed the assessment on time but also provided the data so quickly and efficiently.
