National Results for pupils at all key stages look positive at school
The Key Stage 1 and 2 results alongside those from phonics checking in year 1 and Good Level of Development in Reception all look very good and most children achived or over-achieved their potential.
Although yet to be clarified by the government the Key Stage 2 SATs results appear to be very good and show another good year in attainment and thus in progress for our outgoing year 6 pupils. The following percentages of pupils achievec the expected standard at the end of year 6 in 2019:
Writing: 74% (national 78%)
Reading: 77% (national 73%)
Maths: 82% (national 79%)
SPAG: 79% (national 78%)
These are very pleasing. Similarly in Key Stage 1 the year 2 children have achieved well getting 70% in reading, 62% inwriting and 70% in maths against a national average of around 72%. The phonics checking showed 84% of year 1 pupils met expected levels and 2/3 of those taking the check again in year 2 also met it. In reception 70% of children got a Good Level of Development (2018 nationally it was 72%). Well done to everyone and in a busy curriculum where the school doesn't teach to SATs we are rightly proud of everyone.
