  1. that 37.1% of the pupils at Woodchurch High School aceihved 5 A*-C including English and Maths. In the last 6 years each cohort has aceihved over 40% and in 2010 the pupils at Woodchurch High School aceihved 56% A*-C with Maths and English (80% overall), the Government floor target being 30%, now 35%. This places Woodchurch in a very strong position and presents an extremely favourable comparison with like schools locally and nationally. I feel that it is extremely important that this error is corrected because it reflects the fact that children from the estate have been able to achieve and gain success with the appropriate intervention and funding that has, throughout the last few years, come into schools. This figure also reflects the outstanding commitment that the staff at Woodchurch have to the school and to the community.
