Our focus is ensuring that every child makes maximum progress whilst attaining as well as they can individually. OFSTED noted that pupils made at least good progress in reading and maths and outstanding in writing. In 2016 our progress in reading, writing and maths was well above national standards and placed the school in the top 25% of all schools nationally. In 2017 our progress was in line with national standards.
In 2016 the government changed the assessment arrangements from levels to age expected standards. The assessments changed radically from previous years and this has affected the outcomes for many pupils nationally. Our results have been improving year on year and the majority of children at Year 6 have been leaving in line with or above the national average. It is however only possible to compare the new assessments over the last 2 years.
