How are we doing?

Early Years Foundation Stage

It needs to be acknowledged that 85% of children who entered the foundation stage for 2013/14 were below age related national expectations (externally verified). However, 69% left being on track with a ‘Good’ Level of development compared to 52% being achieved nationally.

In 2014/15 72% of children entered the foundation stage below age related expectations. However, 72% of children left with a good level of development compared with the national average of 62%.

In 2015/16 82% of children entered the Reception class below age related expectations, but 75%(excluding one child from the base) achieved a good level of development, compared with 69% nationally.

In 2016/17 72% of children entered the Reception class below the age related expectations, but 67% (excluding one child from the base) achieved a good level of development, compared with 70% nationally. This is why we are very proud of our Early Years.

At the end of Year 1 children complete a phonics check, this is to check the children’s understanding of phonics (reading).

Previously (pre-2016) by the end of KS 1 it’s expected that the average child will achieve at least a level 2. However, from 2016 the Government set a more challenging curriculum that ended with a more challenging test. Children are now reported at ‘Working Below, Working At or Working at Greater Depth’.

Key Stage 2

At the end of Key Stage 2 children were previously expected to achieve a level 4. Again since the new methodology and increased challenge with end of year assessments the outcomes are reported as ‘Working Below, Expected Standard or Greater Depth for the Most Able’.

*Data does not include Area Resource Base children (4 2016). The combined national measure for 2016 was 53%, including the 4 Area Resource Base children we achieved 68%, excluding we achieved 87% and this puts the school in the top 4% of schools in the country. In 2017 2 pupils’ from the base have not had published performance information, combined reading, writing and maths is 76% compared to a national combined of 61%.

Level 5+ (Most able pupils-pupils who left KS 1 with a L3)

Since 2016 the most able pupils are reported as working at ‘Greater Depth’.

In 2017 the school achieved 10% (excluding ARB) combined for Reading, Writing and Maths for the higher standards. The national average was 9%.

Scaled Scores

It is expected nationally that by the end of KS 2 pupils will achieve a national scale scored for reading and maths of 100.

Area Resource Base Performance

Children who learn in the ARB (Area Resource Base) are measured using the national measure-progression guidance. This ensures that all children are making rapid and sustained progress.

Every child in the ARB has ‘small step’ targets (set by B-squared and monitored by CASPA) in all three subjects. We are immensely proud of the progress that are pupils in the base.

Raise on Line Summary Report

The government uses performance data to monitor the school’s performance, historically this was called ‘Raise On Line’. Schools are now monitored using ASP ‘Analyse School Performance’. This demonstrates pupils’ progress from their starting points. We provide Raise on line for pupils included and excluded from the Area Resource Base, but schools do not yet have the capacity to do this yet with ASP. This is because the children in the base are tracked through a separate system, but are published in Rasie On Line.
