Assessment and Performance Data

We were proud to receive a letter recently from Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP congratulating us on our 2018 Phonics results.


Since the removal of National Curriculum levels descriptors and the implementation of the new curriculum we are working in partnership with the local authority (LA), local cluster schools (ECLC) and external agencies to use an assessment tool that will work with our curriculum, students, parents and staff.


The school carries out summative assessments four times a year for Reading, Writing and Maths against the end of year expectations. These assessments are shared with parents at each assessment point.

Assessment Summary 2017-2018


Children are defined as having reached a 'Good Level of Development' (GLD) at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in the early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language).

School results for GLD continues to be above that of the National standard. APS (Average Point Score) has now been above that of the National for the last three years.


Phonics Screening (Year 1/2)

The results from Phonics Screening continues to be well above that of National. This year all of the pupils in Year 1 achieved the expected standard in phonics putting us in the top 3% of the country.  By the end of Key Stage 1 91% of pupils had reached the expected standard in phonics.


Key Stage 1 (End of Year 2)

School data for Expected Standard and Greater Depth is above that of National data in Reading, Writing and Maths. Teacher assessment in Science is roughly in line with National.


Key Stage 2 (End of Year 6)

School data for Expected Standard and Greater Depth is currently below National in all areas. 

A Summary of Statutory Assessment Data

What Ofsted (2017) say:

“pupils’ skills in reading, writing and mathematics are improving rapidly and pupils are well prepared for entry into each key stage of their education.”


“In 2016, most children reached a good level of development at the end of the Reception Year from broadly average starting points.”


“Achievement at key stages 1 and 2 is good over time..”


“The proportion of pupils meeting the expected threshold in the phonics screening check at the end of Year 1, including those who are disadvantaged, has improved to above average in 2016.”


“Progress in writing is improving rapidly ...”


“Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities make good progress as a result of well-targeted support from highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants.”
