School Performance 2018 – 2019

School performance for the academic year 

As part of steps taken to fight the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), the government announced that all exams that were due to take place in schools in England in summer 2020 and summer 2021 were cancelled and that any school level educational performance data based on tests, assessments or exams for 2020 or 2021 will not be published.

 The below data is therefore based on the 2018-19 academic year:


Good Level of Development 

Children are defined as having reached a good level of development 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) and the early learning goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

Key Stage 1

Phonics Screening 

The phonics screening check is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. The test is designed to identify children who need extra help so that this can be provided by the school. The school uses Read, Write Inc to teach phonics across key stage 1.

Standard Assessment Test (SATs)

At the end of Key Stage 1 (year 2), children will take official SATs in reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling, and maths. These tests are used by the teacher to allow them to make a judgement about a pupil’s attainment. Children are also assessed by their teacher in speaking and listening, writing and science.

(EX = Expected standard; GD = Greater Depth)  

Key Stage 2

Standard Assessment Test (SATs)

At the end of Key Stage 2 (year 6), children will take official SATs in reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG) and maths. In addition to this children are assessed by their teacher in the area of writing.

Progress Measures

The progress scores below show how much progress pupils made in reading, writing and mathematics between the end of keystage 1 (year 2) and the end of keystage 2  (year 6) compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1. The national average is 0.

The scaled score indicates how well pupils performed in the reading and mathematics tests. The expected scaled score was 100.

2017 2018 2019
Reading progress 4.96 0.56 -1.7*
Scaled score 106 105 104*
Writing progress 4.80 -0.55 0.3*
Maths progress 5.44 0.1 1.1*
Scaled score 108 103 105*
