Key Stage 1 Summary 2016

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 classified as a) working at the expected standard, b) not achieving the standard, or c) working at greater depth within the expected standard.  It is recognised nationally that the goalposts have certainly moved upwards and standards/expectations are much higher than previously.

54 pupils in the cohort.

Generally, we are pleased with our results and can celebrate some individual success stories, and explain less positive results. Our priorities for 2016/2017 are to improve our writing results at Key Stage 1 and to increase the % of children achieving the standard at Year 1 in phonics. We are already moving along this path, with focused teaching and learning in the key skills that children need to progress, and building an even more positive culture of high expectations throughout the school.
