KS2 Results

The School Performance Tables have yet to be updated for the academic year 2018-2019.  They are available by clicking on the link below but are based on results for 2017-2018.

The provisional KS2 results for 2019 are listed below:

  • 58% of pupils achieved the Expected Standard in Reading, Writing and Maths combined.  The National Average was 65%

  • 9% of pupils achieved the Higher Standard in Reading, Writing and Maths combined.  The National Average was 11%

  • 68% of pupils met the Expected Standard in Reading.  The National Average was 73%

  • 30% of pupils achieved the Higher Standard in Reading. The National Average was  27%

  • 84% of pupils met the Expected Standard in Writing.  The National Average was 78%

  • 15% of pupils achieved the Higher Standard in Writing. The National Average was  20%

  • 73% of pupils met the Expected Standard in Maths. The National Average was 79%

  • 22% of pupils  achieved the Higher Standard in Maths.  The National Average was 27%

Most importantly, the pupils made very good progress from their starting point in our school. We have been working very closely with the Department of Education and OFSTED to raise awareness of the difficulties Junior schools have in demonstrating good progress across Key Stage 2 and would like to draw your attention to the following message that is now included for parents:

 

Junior schools

We know from national data that pupils at junior schools, on average, have higher attainment scores at the end of key stage 2 than pupils at all other primary schools. However, on average, they also have lower progress scores. This may be for a variety of reasons and should be taken into account when comparing their results to schools which start educating their pupils from the beginning of key stage 1.

Despite this, the Progress Scores this year were extremely positive!  The pupils made above average (average = 0) progress in Reading and Writing:

 

Reading = 1.77 

Writing = 2.33

This essentially means that when you compare the progress the pupils made across KS2 to pupils of a similar starting point in England they actually out performed them on average.  

Progress in Maths was also good and slightly above average:

Maths = 0.44

 

We would like to thank the pupils, parents and staff for all of the hard work that went towards achieving such great results - we are very proud of you!
