Key Stage SAT Results

Once agin we are very pleased with our SATs results this year and they are just reward for the hard work and determination shown by the children and teachers this year. 

Whilst we do have very high academic standards, we see this as only part of the picture. We aim to provide an education that caters for the whole child rather than focusing solely on academic achievement.

The quality of care, guidance and support provided by the school is extremely important to us and we place a very high emphasis on safeguarding the welfare and nurturing the personal development of each pupil. Therefore we ask you not to judge us just on our academic results, but also on whether our pupils feel safe and enjoy coming to school; and whether they are becoming confident, caring and responsible young people, well prepared for the future.

Pupils in Year 2 are assessed against the Key Stage 1 Interim Assessment Framework and given a teacher assessment as to whether they are working towards the expected standard have reached the expected standard or are working at greater depth. These are judged by the percentage of children who reached the expected standard or were working at greater depth. National figures are not yet available for comparison.

These teacher assessment results for were:

The children also undertook formal assessments. A child reaching the expected level on these tests achieved a scaled score of 100. In Year 2 this year 95% of children achieved a scaled score over 100 in Reading, and 86% achieved this in Maths. 

In Key Stage 2 the children undertook formal examinations in Reading, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and Maths, following the same scaled score model as in Key Stage 1. Writing was teacher assessed against the Key Stage 2 Interim Framework and children were either working towards the expected level, working at the expected level to working at greater depth.
