Attainment is shown with and without the pupils from the Small Specialist Class for pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

Our school’s attainment is above average. 63% of pupils in our mainstream classes reached the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics combined, (61% if the figures include the pupils in the Small Specialist Class) compared to 61% nationally. More pupils reached a higher standard in all of reading, writing and maths combined, up from 13% last year, to 16% in 2017, and well above the national figure of 9%.

In 2017, in the reading test 77% of pupils reached the expected standard, compared to 71% nationally.  31% achieved a high score compared to 25% nationally.

In mathematics, 68% of pupils reached the expected standard compared to 75% nationally, while 31% achieved a high score compared to 23% nationally.

Attainment by teacher assessment in writing is above national average, with 79% achieving the expected standard, compared to 76% nationally. 23% of our pupils were working at greater depth within the expected standard in writing, compared to 18% nationally.

In the grammar, punctuation and spelling test 77% of pupils reached the expected standard, the same as the national percentage. More pupils achieved the high score in grammar, punctuation and spelling than other subjects, with 42% achieving the high score, as opposed to 31% nationally. Our school’s average scaled score was 107, compared to 106 nationally.

These figures include all our pupils, including those in the Small Specialist Class who may be working below the level of the Key Stage 2 tests.

Progress scores
Junior Schools

“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, they also have lower progress scores. It is not clear what causes this, but inspectors should be aware of this when using and interpreting data for different schools.”

(Ofsted, Inspection Data Summary Report, November 2017)

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.

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.
