Key Stage 1 and 2 Results & School Performance Tables
Our KS2 results and School performance data is held online at the Education website, which can be found by using this weblink.
The results provided below are not current; there were no national statutory tests in 2020 and schools are not required to publish results
Performance Data Overview
The national curriculum tests (also known as SATs) are designed to assess pupils' knowledge and understanding of what they have been learning at school. They help teachers learn more about a child's strengths and weaknesses and the results are used to compare how well each child is doing with their peers, both in their school and across the country.
Key Stage 2 Performance Measures - July 2019
Our children work incredibly hard during their time at school and we are proud of their achievements.
In 2019, our Y6 cohort consisted only of 10 children. Therefore, due to the small numbers, the results are suppressed due to the sensitivity of the data.
Key Stage 2 Performance Measures - July 2018
Our children work incredibly hard during their time at school and we are proud of their achievements. Our Year 6 cohort of 26 children in July 2018 gained results as follows:
Average Progress Scores:
Reading: -3.4 (confidence interval between -6.1 and -0.7)
Writing: -2.0 (confidence interval between -4.6 and 0.6) AVERAGE
Mathematics: -6.0 (confidence interval between -8.4 and -3.6)
This means that our children made progress that is in line with those children nationally with similar starting points from end of Key Stage 1 (Y2) and end of Key Stage 2 (Y6) in writing. In reading and mathematics the progress this cohort made was below that of other children nationally.
Average Scaled Scores
At the end of Year 6, children sit their SATs tests which give a raw score. This is converted into a scaled score where 100 marks the 'expected standard'. Our average scaled scores for our 2018 cohort of Year 6 children were:
Reading: 103 (National 105)
Maths: 101 (National 104)
Achieving the expected standard
The national benchmark for the percentage of children reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths in 2018 was 64%
Our school achieved 55%
Achieving a high level of attainment
The national benchmark for the percentage of children surpassing the expected standard in reading, writing and maths in 2018 was 10%
Our school achieved 5%
