C of E primary's test results annulled

03 October 2014


GOVERNORS of the 100-pupil Cartmel C of E Primary School, Cumbria, have called in investigators from a management consultancy after learning that results of standard assessment tests (SATs) for Year 6 pupils had been annulled.

The Standards and Assessment Agency told the governors that maths and spelling test-papers had been tampered with after the children completed them. Mary Iveson, who chairs the governors, said that it was an isolated incident that was completely unacceptable. "We are really sorry this has happened."

The director of education for the diocese of Carlisle, Michael Mill, said that all the children affected had now moved to a neighbouring C of E secondary school. "Integrity and trust are central to the Christian ethos of all our schools," he said.
