Local Schools: This refers to the data made available on schools within Derby City as recorded by DCC.

TBC: To Be Confirmed - Data for this group has yet to be published by the appropriate authority and a comparison cannot yet be made.

Provisional: This indicates that the outcomes have been recorded before the submissions deadline to the DfE and are may therefore be subject to modification at a later date.

NA: Not applicable.  Data is not collected for this category, or is not comparable owing to different systems or recording, standards or other DfE defined measure.

NYA: Not yet available.  Applied where a process is incomplete or awaiting application at a future date.


Phonics Screening Check (END OF YEAR 1)

The phonics screening check is an assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard.  

Teachers administer the screening check one-on-one with each pupil and record whether their response to each of the 40 words is correct. This mark is from 0 to 40 and for 2016, as in previous years, the threshold to determine whether a pupil had reached the expected standard was 32.

Key Stage 2 Results (End of Year 6)


Children are assessed agains the Department for Education (DfE) Standardised Attainment Tests (SATS) at the end of Year 6.  Any percentages listed indicate pupils making the new 'Expected' standard. Figures listed with a * are awaiting DfE validation.



'Progress' refers to the improvement in learning from their Key Stage 1 Assessments/Tests.  This figure is important, as it shows the 'Value Added' by the school during a child's time at Ashgate Primary.  Progress enables a clearer view of the impact of teaching and learning and is key to the assessment of its effectiveness.


To assess 'progress' and represent impact, the DfE use an algorithm based on scores in the two tests (taken in Year 2 and in Year 6)  


0 represents the 'expected progress'.

+ indicates 'better than expected' progress.

- indicates 'less than expected progress.
