Results and Performance

Primary

We are very proud of the super progress our pupils are making. As our primary provision is only to Year 3 at the moment, we do not yet have any Key Stage 2 data to publish. The national data referred to here is from 2016 – we will update this when the 2017 data is released. All our assessments were moderated by the Local Authority.

Early Years
The results for our pupils at the end of Early Years Foundation Stage reflect the rapid progress that most of them made last year, from overall starting points that for many children were well-below those typical for their age. In summer 2017, 75% of pupils achieved a Good Level of Development, compared to 69% nationally.

Boys and girls attained better than boys and girls nationally, as did those children who are entitled to free school meals. The results reflect a consistent improvement each year since we opened.

Phonic Screening Check
Our pupils in Year 1 undertook the Phonic Screening Check in summer 2017. 77% of pupils met the required standard, compared to 81% nationally in 2016. This shows a 12% improvement from our 2016 results and we are working hard to ensure pupils at our academy achieve above the national data in 2018.

100% of our pupils met the required standard by the end of Year 2, putting all groups above national.

End of Key Stage 1
Children made good progress in most areas, from starting points in Key Stage 1 below national.

Reading is a particular strength. The proportion of children achieving the expected level and Greater Depth (achieving above the expected level) from all different starting points is higher than national.

In Writing, the proportion of children achieving the expected level from each starting point is above national. The proportion achieving Greater Depth is below national.

Our results in Mathematics are below national. Children are developing their understanding of mathematical concepts and our Primary Phase has been successful in applying to join the Mathematics Mastery Programme which will help us to increase the rate of progress further.
