The borough also had a large proportion of pupils achieving the higher standard, with 47 % of pupils in reading, 30 % in writing, 42 % in mathematics and 20 % in all three subjects combined doing so.
Cllr Penny Frost, Cabinet Member for Schools on Richmond Council, said:
“These results show that yet again our primary schools are excelling - building on our high results last year. It demonstrates that despite difficult financial circumstances, our schools are showing both first class standards and a commitment to continue to do the best for every pupil.
“My congratulations go to the pupils, teaching staff and governors for their achievements with improvements having been made in every area.”
