Key Stage SAT Results

2018 Results

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.

In Early Years Foundation Stage, 82% of pupils reached a Good Level of Development, compared with 71% nationally (2017 figures). The Average Point Score this year was 37.4, compared with a national figure of 34.5 (2017).

In the Year 1 Phonics Check 73% of children achieved the expected standard of 32/40. Although this is a decrease on previous years, we fully expect the level of children achieving the expected standard to rise back to our average value of around 85% in the coming academic year. 

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.
