A Harpenden primary school is celebrating its recent results.

The Lea Primary School pupils have gained a 96 per cent attainment level in their latest SATS.

These results included 100 per cent of pupils attaining an age related expectation in maths and in reading.

The new approach to learning introduced by new head James Berry has meant a more inclusive system of classroom observations and more investment in teacher development and support.

Attendance levels are rising and feedback from parents and pupils has been excellent, the school said.
