How well are we doing?

Early Years

The Reception have performed excellently this year. The pupil’s baseline assessment showed the pupils to be at national average at the beginning of the year. However, the class finished with 73% of pupils achieving a Good Level of Development. This is above the national average.


Year 1 Phonics Check

The Year 1 pupils have achieved a good phonics score this year. They have achieved just below the national average of 77%.


Key Stage 1 Results

At Key Stage 1 we have achieved some good results and are very proud of all the children who have worked exceptionally hard in Year 2. Mrs Flint, Mrs Dickinson and all the staff that have worked with the children have produced some good results, particularly in reading, that will prepare the children really well for their move into Key Stage 2. The progress in writing from their starting points at the end of Reception is excellent as well. Only 39% of pupils achieved the writing standard at the end of Reception; there are now 55% who have achieved the end of Key Stage 1 expected standard.

Here are the results the Year 2 pupils achieved:

Expected Standard Greater Depth Standard
Reading 77% 10%
Writing 55% 3%
Maths 61% 10%


Key Stage 2 Results


With the raising of expectations and the new SATs tests at Key Stage 2, the Year 6 work extremely hard to produce some good results. In reading and Maths, the pupils achieved below the national average whilst in writing, the class achieved above the national average. Here are the results compared with national average.

School Expected standard National expected standard Greater Depth Standard School Greater Depth Standard National
Reading 59% 71% 10% 25%
Writing 83% 76% 21% 18%

Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling

76% 77% 17% 31%
Maths 69% 75% 10% 22%

We are also measured by the progress our pupils have made from the end of Year 2 until the end of Year 6. The pupils achieved well in Key Stage 1 so the pupils progress is below the expected standard in reading but shows higher than expected progress in writing and expected progress in maths. The progress for Key Stage pupils are:

Reading -3.2

(below expected progress)

Writing +1.4

(Expected progress)

Maths -0.8
