Redditch MP Rachel Maclean said: “Rachel said: “Every child, no matter their background, deserves a great education, and that’s certainly happening in Redditch thanks to our first-class teachers and outstanding schools.
“Congratulations to our schools who have seen an increase in the number of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics at Key Stage 2.
“One of my favourite parts of the job is talking to children and young people and I’m looking forward to visiting these schools once again to pass on my congrats in person.”
