Achievement

 

Year 2

 

 We understand that pupil success is not just about brilliant SATs results. Success can also be found in completing a painting, learning a new song on the violin, getting better at spelling, swimming a whole length or finally being brave enough to climb a tree in our Forest School sessions. Whilst our 2017 academic results are impressive we believe that success isn't always big and showy but that it happens everyday in every classroom.

Our children work incredibly hard and we are rightly proud of them, everyday.

Analysis

These are very good results. They show that 86% of the children in Year 2 achieved at least the expected standard in Maths, 83% in Reading and 80% in Writing. They also show that a quarter of children exceeded the expectation in Maths and Writing and that two-fifths of children exceeded the expectation in Reading. They represent some very pleasing results and show that the children in Year 2 have done extremely well. Although no national comparisons are available at the time of writing in Key Stage 1 we are delighted with them and are confident they will compare very favourably when such statistics become available.

These are outstanding results. They show that 93% of the children in Year 6 achieved the expected standard in Maths, 90% achieved the expected standard in Writing, 100% achieved the expected standard in Reading and 97% achieved the expected standard in SPaG. They also show that 86% of children achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths which is 25% above national averages (last year we were 21% above national averages). Equally pleasing are the figures for those children exceeding the expected standard. 34% of our children achieved an exceeding score in Reading, Writing and Maths compared with a national average of 5% (2016). All our results are substantially above the national averages and have been now for a long period of time.

 

It is also worth noting that these assessments were based on the assumption that the children in Year 6 have completed 4 years of this new curriculum when they have, in fact, only completed three years.

 

Overall these are extremely pleasing results and give us much to celebrate. The children have worked extremely hard for these results and we should be rightly proud of their achievements. However a good school is one that is constantly reflective and always wants to improve. The school will continue to analyse these in depth and plans are in place to progress the breadth and depth of the curriculum as we work towards preparing for the future.
