Today, the Department for Education (DfE) published the outcomes for pupils across England.
Whilst ‘data outcomes’ are not the only foci within the school they are important in terms of the value added to those children in our care. For this purpose, I regularly update the school website with up to date information.
If you are interested in viewing our academic record, details can be found under ‘Key Information > Assessment Data’.
Academic Year 2018 – Outline.
Our data indicates that for the 4thconsecutive year, outcomes for pupils have improved in key areas and a trend of progressing better than that nationally expected has been maintained and or extended in many areas.
Key Stage 2
Writing progress is in the top 10% of schools in England and has been in the top 20% for two years. Mathematics progress has continues to accelerate beyond the national expectation.
Attainment in reading, writing and mathematics (at the expected standard) are all in line with or better for the middle prior attainment group.
Key Stage 1
Reading writing and mathematics attainment was above national averages for the all, including disadvantaged pupils, and Phonics Screening results were significantly above the national.
Much has still to be done, and we keep sight of this at all times. Key to our future success will be extending our children’s capacity in reading so that they have the skills needed to interpret text and share opinions, as well as decode.
I would like to thank the children for their hard work, parents in supporting them and crucially the staff at the school who work tirelessly to best meet the needs of pupils.
