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 (2019)

The attainment of our Year 6 pupils' 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. 60% 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 (78%), Reading (69%), Writing (80%) and Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (71%) 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. Please see this detailed in the table below.

 

We can see from these results some real progress from previous year’s outcomes. In some areas we have gained at least 28 percentage points on last year’s outcomes. In 2019, in most subjects, the percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard has doubled. This year, Mathematics has been a focus across the school, where we have ensured all pupils have developed reasoning, problem solving and mathematical communication skills. This year our pupils have achieved 28% higher than in 2018.

 

We are pleased that the collective hard work and focus of our school on ensuring high standards in teaching, pupil outcomes, personal development and behaviour are having a positive impact. This is the first year of our new team, with a new Leadership Team in place, and we are very pleased by the progress we have made in that time.  

 

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. Next year, our focus will be on further developing the teaching of Reading across the school and embedded further our creative curriculum approach.
