Assessment and PerformanceAlthough due to COVID-19 all exams were cancelled nationally, we continued to provide a well-rounded curriculum for all our children to support them as they moved to the next stage of their education. An example of this curriculum can be found on the Creative Curriculum page. Here you can download tables showing our 2018 and 2019 results at the end of KS1 and KS2.
The KS1 table shows a summary of the 2018 National Curriculum assessment results of pupils, both in the school and nationally at the end of Key Stage 1, as a percentage of those eligible for assessment. The number of eligible children is 30. Figures may not total 100 per cent because of rounding. The Year 1 Phonics Screening Test results are also included.
The KS2 table shows the percentage of Year 6 pupils achieving ‘expected standard’ or above in 2018, compared to national end of Key Stage 2 Teacher Assessment Levels and Test Results for 2018. The number of eligible children is 34. Figures may not total 100 per cent because of rounding.
The school’s Ofsted Inspections in October 2005 and in February 2009, found that the school provided an Outstanding provision for its children.
Latest Parent and Children Surveys
To help our school continue to develop and improve, we annually send a questionnaire to all parents and all year six children. This allows our Governing Body to understand parental and child points of view and help evaluate strategies for our next School Development Plan. The surveys were conducted in July 2018. We are pleased with the overwhelmingly positive responses. Please review the full results below.
Assessment determines any decisions about pupils’ further learning needs. National assessment takes place when children are seven (Year 2) and eleven (Year 6) using external tests. The Reception children are assessed at the end of the Reception year against the Early Learning Goals – with on-going assessment and reporting throughout the first year at school.The results of the National Curriculum assessments will be passed on to parents along with national comparative data. However, ongoing assessment takes place throughout the school, closely linked to teachers’ planning which helps provide a more accurate match between teaching content and learning needs and actively engages children in their own learning.
