Achievement

 

Year 2

 

 We understand that pupil success is not just about brilliant SATs results. Success can also be found in completing a painting, learning a new song on the violin, getting better at spelling, swimming a whole length or finally being brave enough to climb a tree in our Forest School sessions. Whilst our 2016 academic results are impressive we believe that success isn't always big and showy but that it happens everyday in every classroom.

Our children work incredibly hard and we are rightly proud of them, everyday.

Analysis

These are very good results. They show that 86% of the children in Year 2 achieved at least the expected standard against the new, much tougher, National Curriculum in every subject and that at least a third of children exceeded this expectation. They represent some very pleasing results and show that the children in Year 2 have done extremely well. Although no national comparisons are available at the time of writing in Key Stage 1 we are delighted with them and are confident they will compare very favourably when such statistics become available.

These are very good results. They show that 79% of the children in Year 6 achieved the expected standard against the new, much tougher, National Curriculum in Maths and Reading and 84% achieved the expected standard in Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation. They also show that 89%of children achieved the expected standard against the new, much tougher, National Curriculum in Writing and that 32% exceeded that expectation. All our results are substantially above the national averages. The most important statistic is perhaps the combined Reading, Writing and Maths figure which shows the percentage of children who reach the expected standard in all subjects. Our figure of 74% is 21% above the national average (whereas last year we were 6% above the national average).

 It is also worth noting that these assessments were based on the assumption that the children in Year 6 have completed 4 years of this new curriculum when they have, in fact, only completed two years.

 Overall these are extremely pleasing results and give us much to celebrate. The children have worked extremely hard for these results and we should be rightly proud of their achievements. However a good school is one that is constantly reflective and always wants to improve. The school will continue to analyse these in depth and plans are in place to progress the breadth and depth of the curriculum as we work towards preparing for September 2016.
