A fifth of primary school pupils are not reaching Level 4 -- the standard required of the age group -- in english, according to Key Stage 2 figures released by the Department for Children, Schools and Families. This is down 1 per cent on last year to 80 per cent -- the first drop since the test began in 1995. Todays figures also show almost two fifths of 11-year-olds still failing to succeed at the three Rs. Just 61 per cent reached Level 4 in reading, writing and maths -- down 1 per cent on last year. Almost three in ten (28 per cent) failed to reach this standard in english and maths overall, also down 1 per cent on 2008. The Government aim is for 78 per cent of children to reach Level 4 in english and maths by 2011. This year 72 per cent attained that level. Schools Minister Diana Johnson today admitted meeting that target would be challenging and added she was disappointed . She said the Government was implementing a range of new schemes, including one-to-one tuition for failing children. Teachers groups are expressing concern about the future of Sats, but Childrens Secretary ed Balls insists the Stage 2 tests are here to stay. New assisted suicide rules will apply here PLEASE RECYCLE YOUR COPY OF LITE RESPONSIBLY PThe Director of Public Prosecutions today said any new guidelines on assisted suicide will apply in Britain as well as abroad. Keir Starmer said he wanted to correct the misapprehension that the law would in future only affect those going abroad to help loved ones die in such clinics as Dignitas in Switzerland. This is not a policy thats going to apply only to those who go abroad, he said. This policy is going to cover all assisted suicides. The same broad principles will apply. Theyve got to apply to all acts, in the jurisdiction or out of it. We wont have separate rules for Dignitas. Mr Starmers comments follow the landmark Lords ruling last week on the case of multiple sclerosis sufferer Debbie Purdy. The Law Lords backed the 46- year-olds bid to force Mr Starmer to issue guidelines setting out the circumstances in which her husband would be prosecuted if he travelled with her to Dignitas where she would be helped to die. The decision was greeted by some observers as paving the way for legalised assisted suicide. -- TwiTTering LiLy ALLen, lefT, admiTs shes losT inTeresT in freddie flinToff and now fancies england crickeT bowler graham onions Hes so camp he makes me look like a World Wrestling Entertainment character -- TV fashion guru Gok WAn reVeals he has The hoTs for X facTor judge simon cowell People dont want to hear your misery, do they? -- LAdy GAGA says There wonT be sad songs on her new album afTer breaking up wiTh her boyfriend diSTRiBUTion HeLPLine: If you have any comments about the distribution of London Lite, ring 020 7651 5276, or email distribution@thelondonlite.co.uk On the Tube JOURNEY PLANNER For the easiest way to get around London visit tfl.gov. uk and click on Journey Planner London travel information call 020 7222 1234 24-hours Textphone 020 7918 3015 Travel alerts receive free real-time travel info on your mobile or email, subscribe at tfl.gov. uk/travelalerts for more information on oyster, visit oystercard.com LU Customer services for inquiries, call 0845 330 9880 between 8am and 8pm daily Congestion charging for payment details call 0845 900 1234 or visit cclondon. com London Travelwatch call 020 7505 9000 or visit londontravel watch.org.uk Roadwatch Southwark St, Bermondsey: works at great guildford st.
