Norfolk's 7-year-olds have posted record results in reading - with the county moving ahead of the national average for the first time.
Key Stage 1 results show that 91% of pupils achieved the expected level two or above in reading - up from 89% in 2014 and above the national average of 90%.
In writing and maths, Norfolk was in line with the national average with 88% achieving at least level two in writing and 93% in maths.
However reading for younger children is still behind the rest of the country. 73% of 6-year-olds passed the phonics check this year, up from 69% last year. Nationally, 77% passed the check.
"Getting early education right is crucial because results at five, six and seven give a good indication of how children will go on to achieve later in their education. Reading is particularly vital because it unlocks the rest of the curriculum for children, as well as providing a huge amount of joy. Whilst it is encouraging to go ahead of the national average on this measure and to be in line with the national average for writing and maths for seven-year-olds, there is still much to do if we are to collectively ensure that all of Norfolk's children are reaching their potential. We want Norfolk to not simply reach but exceed the national average across every key stage"

The University of East Anglia has been named the 18th best university in the country for student satisfaction.
That's according to the Times Good University Guide. However that's a drop from last year when it came 14th.
Cambridge University topped the poll.
A schoolgirl from Norfolk has been barred from classes because her shoes have the wrong coloured heels.
Shakira Silom, who is 12, was told by teachers at Ormiston Venture Academy in Gorleston that her shoes don't match the criteria for school uniform.
Watch Kate Prout's report:
Ormiston Venture Academy in Gorleston has responded after a 12 year old pupil, Shakira Silom, is spending a second week in a seclusion class for wearing the wrong footwear. The year eight schoolgirl was told her shoes must be black and not with a coloured heel. She has already spent a week in seclusion for failing to change her shoes. A spokesperson for the school said" The footwear is a black shoe with a brown trim around it, in particular on the thick heel, that is clearly visible. We must be consistent with all students."
The diary of a young man who was a student at Cambridge University in the Victorian period is being put on public display for the first time.
It reveals that the stress of exams certainly hasn't changed in the past 150 years.
The notebook can be viewed at St John's College library as part of Open Cambridge week.
Student Francis Hutton's handwriting is suitably spidery and the diary is complete with amusing doodles. It gives a fascinating insight into life at the college in the 1800s.
