YELVERTOFT PRIMARY SCHOOL RESULTS 2017

 

The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages.  We are delighted with the results across the school.  They are a tribute to the children and the staff.

Early Years Foundation Stage

73% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework. This is above the national average of 67%.

A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

Phonic Screening

67% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test. This is below the national average (81%). 95% of pupils in Year Two attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test which is above the national average (92%).

Key Stage One

This is the second year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents KS1 from the Standards and Testing Agency.

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:

Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2

Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Key Stage Two

Children in Year 6 are also assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum. The curriculum introduced in 2014 provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.   The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80.

Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:

Expected Standard - Working at the expected standard for their age

Greater Depth - Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum.

In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a High Standard. Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.

Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science. For further information, please see the leaflet Information for parents KS2 from the Standards and Testing Agency.

Our results are good in all areas and we are particularly pleased with writing results and the increase in pupils achieving greater depth in all subjects.  The only exception is of pupils achieving Expected levels in Maths which was lower and resulted in overall levels of attainment in Reading, Writing & Maths being 50%. This has been analysed with our specific cohort and measures have been put in place to address any necessary areas.

2016 Results

It is important to understand that the national assessment structure changed in 2016.  The system for measuring attainment by levels has now finished, and pupils will either be identified as a) working at the expected standard, b) not achieving the expected standard or c) working at greater depth within the expected standard.

It is recognised nationally that the goalposts have moved upwards and standards/expectations are much higher than previously set.

As these are new assessments of a new national curriculum there are no current comparatives to previous attainment but our previous results are detailed below.

National figures for 2016 are shown in brackets.

Our children worked very hard and we are very proud of them all.  Our priorities for 2016/17 are to improve our standards in Phonics in Key Stage One and Writing in Key Stage Two; increase % pupils achieving age related expectations in all areas at the end of KS2 and to increase % pupils achieving greater depth in writing across the school.  We are already moving along the path towards this goal with increased focus on teaching and learning skills that the children need to progress; building an even more positive culture of high expectations and celebration of success across the school in all areas of the curriculum.
