Our school’s attainment is above average.

To help parents understand the published data for our school, attainment is shown with and without the pupils from the Small Specialist Class for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, who may be working below the level of the tests, but who are included in our published results. Our combined Reading, Writing and Maths score has increased to 67%, or 70% for mainstream pupils, an increase of 5% from last year. This is above the national average of 64%. Each of the individual subjects assessed showed an improvement from the previous year, at the Expected Standard or higher.

13% of our pupils achieved the Higher Standard in all three subjects, compared to 10% nationally.

The average scaled score has shown a steady increase over the last three years, and is above average in all subject areas.

Ofsted’s understanding of our school’s Pupil Progress measures reflects a national picture where junior schools have higher attainment and lower progress scores than primary schools overall. This can be for a variety of reasons. These scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

“We know from national data that pupils at junior schools, on average, have higher attainment scores at the end of key stage 2 than pupils at all other primary schools. However, on average they also have lower progress scores, which may be for a variety of reasons. Inspectors should be aware of this and, as with any inspection, carefully consider a range of information and data including the progress of current pupils in all year groups.” Inspection Data Summary Report, Ofsted November 2018

The scores are calculated by comparing the key stage 2 test and assessment results of pupils at this school with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with similar assessment results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 1. A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of their key stage 1.

A negative progress score does not mean pupils have made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 1.

The majority of schools have progress scores between -5 and +5.
