Academic Achievement

2020 & 2021

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department for Education cancelled the 2019/20 and 2020/21 national curriculum assessments and associated data collections.

 

2019 Results

Our Year 6 pupils achieved another fantastic set of SATs results in 2019.

Year 6 pupils achieved results well above local and national averages at the expected standard, and further improvements have been made on last year’s results.

Our average scaled score in reading was 105 (CBC & National 104) and in maths 106 (CBC 104 & National 105)

The government's progress measures aim to capture the progress that pupils make from the end of key stage 1 to the end of primary school. They are a type of value-added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.  For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score will be zero.  This means that school-level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.  A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between key stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.
Our progress scores in 2019 and (2018) were: English reading -0.2 (-0.7), English writing -0.4 (-2.0) and mathematics 0 (-1.1).

We know from published performance data that pupils at middle schools, on average, have lower progress scores at the end of key stage 2 than pupils at primary schools. Also, due to the age range of pupils at middle schools, pupils will have only attended a middle school for a short time before they take their key stage 2 tests and will still have a number of years left at the school. This should be taken into account when comparing their results to schools which start educating their pupils from the beginning of key stage 1.

  

Year 8 pupils have also achieved significantly higher than national averages and have made excellent progress from their relative starting points.

 

This graph details the progress made by students from joining us in year 5 to leaving in year 8.  Excellent progress has been made in all subjects with attainment well above average.
