Our school is committed to ensuring that every child reaches their full potential through an exciting and innovative curriculum and high quality teaching and learning.  We aim to provide the perfect conditions for learning as we believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn. 

The measure of any school is the extent to which it helps children to make progress from varying starting points when they start school. Our school makes more than nationally expected progress with pupils, many of whom begin school below national expectation and then leave at the end of Year 6, at or above nationally expected levels. Over the past two years our school has been consistently above national averages in reading, writing, SPAG and maths. This represents outstanding progress given the children's ability on entry and their achievement at the end of Key Stage 1.

We use highly developed assessment procedures which takes into account every individual child along with an enriched curriculum which includes outdoor learning experiences and the development of emotional competencies. This page contains some of the data which helps to show the extent to which our school makes progress with our children but only relates to academic data in terms of reading, writing and mathematics.

 

End of KS2 assessments

Following a national decision to end the allocation of levels for end of key stage assessment, it is no longer possible to compare the school's results for 2019 directly with outcomes from prior to 2016.

All schools are legally required to publish the results of the National Curriculum tests at KS2 annually. 2016 was the first year that the government used scaled scores and new progress measures. The government's Standards & Testing Agency have published an information leaflet for parents about the results from the National Curriculum assessments at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6).
