Standards

Our school, like all good schools, takes great care to ensure that our children reach the highest possible standards whilst they are with us, and as they move on to High School. Teachers track the progress and attainment of each individual child and a particular interest in the core skills of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Each half term we assess pupils in these areas check that everyone is making appropriate progress.

School leaders take a very keen interest in the progress made across school and they support teachers as they monitor the achievement of their children.

At several points during a child’s time in primary school, the achievement of children is reported externally. Currently the times when this takes place are:

End of Reception-GLD: Children are measures as having a Good level of Development (GLD) if they score 78 points across all strands of the Early Years, and achieve at least 6 points in each of 9 strands. (Please note this system is changing during 2012-2013)

Year 1-Phonics Test: In June of Year 1 all children are tested on the knowledge of phonics. The Government sets the level for passing and this is reported externally. This measure was introduced for the first time in 2012.

Year 2- KS1 SATs: Towards the end of Year 2, when a child is aged 6 or 7 and is about to leave Key Stage 1, the teacher assesses the levels they have reached in Reading, Writing and Mathematics and these are reported. These scores are used to make predictions of how well a child will perform at the end of Year 6 when they are 11.

Year 6 – KS2 SATs: In May of a child’s final year at primary school, when children are aged 10 or 11, they take part in SATs tests in English and Mathematics. The Government sets these tests and it is hoped that most children achieve Level 4 or above.

This table shows the attainment of our pupils in the academic year 2011-2012, and compares this with the data available for previous years. One important measure which is included in the table is the percentage of children who have made two levels of progress from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2. This figure takes account of the starting points of children as they entre Key Stage 2 at age 7 and shows the progress they have made by age 11. This should ideally be two levels for children with no additional learning needs.
