Early Years

 Our Reception data 2016 demonstrates significant improvements in all 17 areas of the Early Years curriculum. We have included the main areas that cover early reading, writing and maths skills.

  • All of the targeted work on specific language input, Talk for Writing and developing children as leaders have been the main driving force in securing these standards.

Children are assessed against the ‘Expected Standard,’ shown on the table as EXS+. Some children did not meet the standard and are assessed as either BLW (below the standard of the Pre-key stage) PKF (working at foundation level) or WTS (Working towards the expected standard). Some of our children are working above the expected standard and are assessed as showing Greater Depth (GDS).

Key Stage 2

2016 saw a new system of measuring attainment and progress and cannot be compared to previous years. For each subject, the three columns show the Teacher Assessment (TA) judgement – the standard the child was assessed by their teacher, across a wide range of evidence, to have met – the SATs results and what the test results were nationally.

  • The gap between school and national average of children working at great depth needs to narrow.

  • This is a current priority of the school detailed on our school development plan and integral to teacher appraisal

Attendance

  • 2015-16 95% We recognise that this figure still must improve significantly.

  • A rigorous and determined drive by all staff is prominent within the school – first day response, collection of children from home, strawberry picking for 100% attendance and the attendance book shop are a few of our initiatives.

  • Our attitude to learning dashboards shared at parents evening convey the important link between attendance and achievement.
