  • We are replacing FSM food boxes with Eden Red supermarket vouchers from 18th January for £30 a fortnight per child. The national voucher system opens on Monday 18th so there may be a short delay in them being issued. We will keep in touch when we know more.

School Performance Data is statistical information showing how well pupils in England have performed in public examinations taken at key points in their educational journey.  Data is published for children's attainment in national curriculum tests, often known as SATs, which are take at the end of primary school at age 10 or 11. 

Statutory Assessments 2020/21 

All schools have been advised that formal KS1, KS2 and Foundation Stage Early Years’ assessments are cancelled this year. We welcome this decision as when the children return to school our focus can be on the children’s well-being and closing learning gaps. 

National Performance tables were not published for the academic year 2019/2020
The Secretary of State for Education announced on Wednesday 18 March 2020, that the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments will not take place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
 

Year 2 and Year 6 SATs Results 2019

 I am delighted to report the Year 2 and Year 6 SATs results for 2019. 

You may be aware that there has been a new curriculum in place for a few years and a new way of assessing children.  Instead of being awarded ‘levels’ in Reading, Writing and Maths children are now assessed to see whether they are achieving ‘National Expectations’ in Reading, Writing and Maths as well as Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.

 

Year 2 SATs Assessments:

 

  • 68% achieved National Expectations in Reading

 

  • 69% achieved National Expectations in Writing

 

  • 73% achieved National Expectations in Maths
