AVERAGE PROGRESS SCORES (National average is a score of 0)

Reading: +1.48                       Writing: -3.31*                    Mathematics: 0.27

*The school believes that this progress score does not accurately reflect both current and historic standards in writing. The school believes that this low progress score is as a result of the way that the new Interim Assessment Framework for writing was interpreted during the 2015-16 academic year. 

Results for Key Stage 2 (Year 6) Academic Year 2014-15
As a school, we are absolutely delighted with our provisional results for the end of Key Stage 2 for the academic year 2014-15. This is particularly the case with our % of L5 and L6.

Results Over Time
Level 4+ in English and Maths
One measure which the Department for Education uses is the percentage of pupils attaining Level 4 (the broad, nationally-expected level for 11 year olds) or more by the end of Year 6 in both English and Maths. Using this measure, you can see clearly how our high levels of performance have been sustained over the past few years:
2009: L4+ in English and Maths: 93%
2010: L4+ in English and Maths: 97% (1 pupil absent)
2011: L4+ in English and Maths: 97%
2012: L4+ in English and Maths: 97%
2013: L4+ in Reading and Maths test and Writing teacher assessment: 100%

Level 5+ in English and Maths
 
2009: L5 in English and Maths: 38%
2010: L5 in English and Maths: 57%
2011: L5 in English and Maths: 60%
2012: L5 in English and Maths: 61%
2013: L5 in Reading and Maths test and Writing teacher assessment: 57%

Further breakdown of data
It’s also useful to think about the breakdown between the two core subjects of English and Maths, and the breakdown of pupils who attained at different levels (most 11 year olds are expected to be working at around Level 4).

In Maths in 2012, pupils have reached Level 6, the level at which able 14 year olds might reach. In 2011, there were no externally marked Level 6 assessments. In 2012, 13% of pupils reached Level 6 in Maths in national tests marked externally.

In Maths in 2013, 17% of pupils reached Level 6 in Maths. 


Progress Over Time
Many people would argue that progress is the most important measure as it truly reflects the quality of teaching and learning, regardless of pupils’ starting points. Progress is typically measured from Year 2 (the end of Key Stage 1) to Year 6 (the end of Key Stage 2) in both English and Maths. We are delighted to have sustained very high levels of progress, when compared to both local and national data.
