SATs Results

    "The teaching of phonics is a strength of the school. As a result ... reading progress is good in key stage 1."

Key Stage 2 Assessmentsx

    Every May, Year 6 children across England take statutory tests in Literacy and Maths. In 2016, a new set of tests were introduced, setting higher expectations and altering the way scores are given. Test scores are coverted into a 'Standardised Score' between 80 and 120 for each subject, with a score of 100 representing the new expected level for starting secondary schools. Children across the country found these tests much more challenging, and the percentage achieving expected levels dipped in almost every school - ours included - as a result. The other way in which SATs results are interpretted is through the progress that children have made since Year 2 - a score of 0 represents the national average. You can find out more about our results through the Department for Education Performance Tables site.

2018 Year 6 resultsx

  • Reading - our average scaled score was 100.8, with 58.3% of children scoring 100 or more (the nationally expected level) Our progress score was -2.4.

  • Writing (where there are no tests, so results are based on Teacher Assessment) - 62.5% of children reached the expected standard, with 20.8% reaching the higher "exceeding" outcome. Our progress score was +0.3.

  • Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (GPS) - our average scaled score was 102.9, with 66.7% of children securing a score of 100 or more (the nationally expected level).

  • Maths - our average scaled score was 100.5, with 47.9% of children reaching the expected score of 100 or more. Our progress score was -1.1.
Key Stage 1 Assessmentsx

    Children in Year 2 also sit national tests in May each year. The results of these are used to support teacher assessment, and it is these outcomes which are recorded and reported nationally. In 2018, our KS1 outcomes were:

  • Reading - 51% of children reached the expected standard, with 14% working at 'Greater Depth'.

  • Writing - 34% of children achieved the expected standard, and again 14% were judged to be working at 'Greater Depth'.

  • Maths - 57% of children achieved the expected standard, and 11% were judged to be working at 'Greater Depth'.
Year 1 Phonics Screening Checkx

    The Phonics Screening Check shows how well children can use the phonics skills they've learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify those who need extra phonics help. The checks themselves only take a few minutes to complete, with children working 1-to-1 with a teacher in a way that should feel like normal classroom practice. Over the last few years, phonics has become a real strength at our school, with the Read Write Inc programme used rigourously from Nursery up to ensure children reach expected standards.

    In 2018, our phonics results saw 84% of children reach the expected standard, just ahead of the national average of 83%.
