Performance Data

About the results

Learning is assessed in all classroom interactions. This informs our planning and delivery and requires a flexible approach.

We use a key when marking work which all adults and children understand. This helps to differentiate work which seems to be correct but has been heavily supported, from work which has been done independently.

Regular assessments

Staff will use small scale, low-stakes testing to assess key aspects of learning on a regular basis. These might include timetable testing, spelling tests, phonic sounds and quizzes on particular topics.

Regular testing of this kind, helps to drill key facts and clarify misconceptions.

Formal assessments

Teachers may choose to prepare students for more formal examinations by creating opportunities for examination at any time through-out the year.

Examinations are central to the data that is presented to the trust in three updates during the year.

Statutory assessments of pupils take place in various year groups and this data forms part of evaluations of the school by external stakeholders. This includes:

  • The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) profile for pupils in the reception class;
  • Phonics Screening for pupils in Year 1;
  • Assessments in reading, writing and maths for Year 2 pupils;
  • Year 4 multiplication tables check;
  • Assessments in reading, maths, spelling, punctuation and grammar for pupils in Year 6;
  • Teacher Assessments of writing in Year 6.

Progress Scores

The progress measures aim to capture the progress that pupils make from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of primary school. They are a type of value-added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

This type of progress measure rewards schools for making progress with all of their pupils, whether they are low-, middle- or high-attainers. Any increase in attainment achieved by each pupil is reflected in the school’s progress scores. This measure is a school-level accountability measure.

Progress is calculated for individual pupils solely in order to calculate the school’s overall progress scores.

A school’s progress scores in English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as the average of its pupils’ subject progress scores. These scores give an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the school made above or below average progress in a subject compared with pupils with similar starting points in other schools.

Progress scores are calculated for individual pupils for the sole purpose of constructing a school progress score. Pupil scores are calculated separately for English reading, English writing and mathematics.

Detail showing how these are calculated can be found in the guide here.

Pupils in Key Stage Two did not sit formal exams in 2020 or 2021.

In 2019:

Pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing, and maths 78%
Pupils achieving the higher standard in reading, writing, and maths 11%
Average progress in reading between KS1 and KS2 -1.6
Average progress in writing between KS2 and KS2 1.9
Average progress in maths between KS1 and KS2 -2.5
Average score in reading test 105
Average score in maths test 105
