Our Year 6 pupils were celebrating today after a great set of National Curriculum Test results.
They achieved 100% success in Reading, Writing and Maths, completing a clean sweep for all tests this year. 100% of our Reception pupils achieved the expected level of development in the EYFS baseline, 100% of our Y1 pupils met the expected standard in their Phonics screening check, and 100% of our Y2 pupils were working at the expected standard in the end of KS1 assessments.
Our Reading results at KS2 are significantly above the national average, and we are very proud of our Writing results: our pupils’ writing was externally moderated this year, and the moderators agreed that 60% of our pupils were working at Greater Depth within the expected level (against a national average of 15% last year).
However, we are most pleased with our Maths results in KS2. Last year we recognised that this was an area of development for us as a school (Action Point 3 on our School Improvement Plan), and we have invested in a new Maths scheme to develop mastery, practical resources for all pupils from Reception to Year 6, and staff training in Maths mastery and problem solving. Our results this year have improved significantly and are now in line with the national average, with all our pupils making the expected progress. We will continue to keep Maths as a school priority next year, and hope that very soon our school will excel in Maths as we already excel in Reading and Writing.
