Assessment Results & Performance Data

At the end of a school year, the achievement of our pupils in different stages in the school is judged against National figures for attainment and progress. These assessments are done using a combination of statutory tests (SATS) and teacher assessments.

 

Summary (2018)

The attainment of our Year 6 pupils' attainment was above that of the last three years’ outcomes. This means that over the last three years, pupils have achieved increasingly better in each of the subject areas and for a combined measure of Reading, Writing and Maths. 43% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in Mathematics, Reading and Writing. Nationally, the combined target is 65%.

 

The percentage of pupils who met the expected standard in Mathematics (49%), Reading (64%), Writing (69%) and Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (65%) separately was also markedly improved on the previous two years’ outcomes.

 

In terms of the progress the children made (judged from the end of Year 2 to the end of Year 6), the new government system gives a 'value-added' measure where the progress of each Year 6 pupil is compared with every child in the country who achieved similar results in Year 2. On that basis, the Year 6 cohort also achieved improved progress measures in all three subjects compared to the previous years’ progress.

 

We can see from these results some real progress from previous year’s outcomes. In some areas we have gained at least 10 percentage points on last year’s outcomes and 20 percentage points since 2016. In 2018, in most subjects, the percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard has doubled. For writing, we equalled National figures for those achieving Greater Depth; with the majority of those being boys, which is contrary to the national picture that boys are under attaining in English. We are pleased with this achievement.

We are pleased that we are beginning to see the fruits of our in-school changes to our curriculum, our approach to engaging pupils in Reading and Writing, and that our changes to how we teach pupils in Year 6 have made a difference compared to previous years.

 

Of course, we want to achieve much greater results over the coming years and believe our plans to improve further will ensure that we realise this goal. Mathematics remains our main area of focus; which we will be addressing through a whole school new approach to teaching Mathematics through Mathematics Mastery and involvement with the West Essex Teaching School Alliance on the Primary Advantage project, which will make a great deal of difference to pupil outcomes.
