Achievements and Standards

We pride ourselves on our excellent academic results but strongly recognise and acknowledge that these results are only part of what the children achieve at school.

Where necessary, extra help is provided for pupils with specific needs through our intervention programmes and children who are identified as more able are challenged and their learning extended.

The School’s 2017 Results are available to download here and the School’s 2016 Results are available on the DfE school performance tables website please click here to see. 

2.1 Key stage 2 - measuring performance

A new curriculum introduced in 2014 changed the key stage 2 assessments and primary accountability policy.

The expected standard has been raised and as a result since 2016, we have new key stage 2 performance measures, which should not be compared with the previous measures.

The 2017 headline measures that include attainment and progress measures are:

The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ in English reading, English writing and mathematics at the end of key stage 2

The pupils’ average scaled score:

  • In English reading at the end of key stage 2
  • In mathematics at the end of key stage 2

The percentage of pupils who achieve at a higher standard in English reading, English writing and mathematics

The pupils’ average progress:

  • In English reading
  • In English writing
  • In mathematics
