Last week, we received the summary report issued by Ofsted and the Department of Education analysing the school’s results for 2015-2016 and benchmarking data for our pupils against national levels.
The report stated that 80% of the children in Year 6 last year had achieved at or above the national standard in Reading and that they had made an impressive amount of progress across KS2. This measure of progress puts our children in the top 6% of schools nationally. In writing, 90% of the children reached at or above the national standard, and their progress measure placed them in the top 9% of schools nationally. These are impressive results and demonstrate the effort and commitment put into learning by the children themselves and our members of staff.
In maths, 70% of the children achieved at or above the national standard and their progress placed them in the top 40% of schools nationally. Ensuring that our standards in maths rise to meet those established in reading and writing is a key focus of our school plan over the next year.
80% of our year 2 cohort achieved the expected standard or better in reading and maths (both above national percentages), 60% achieved the expected standard or better in writing (in line with national percentages). Progress from Reception to Year 2 for this group of children was above national progress for reading, well above national progress for maths and in-line with national progress for writing.
