School Performance Information

The 2022 end of Key Stage 1 and end of Key Stage 2 assessments (completed in the summer term) assessed the pupils against the expectations set out in the National Curriculum which was introduced in 2014. New tests and teacher assessment frameworks were introduced in 2016 (updated in 2018) to reflect the revised curriculum.


These are the first attainment statistics since 2019 after national assessments were cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the global pandemic.


Following the tests in June each pupil receives their test results as a scaled score in reading and maths along with a teacher assessment judgement of whether the child has met or not met the end of Key Stage age-related expectations in writing. 


As you will see from the data attached, Key Stage 2 outcomes were broadly similar to those of 2019 – Reading 61%, Writing 65%, Maths 61%, Combined 51%.  In comparison to national data which shows a decrease of 6% in combined data at KS2, we have managed to maintain our standards at the end of Key Stage 2 despite the challenges of the last two years. Pupils in Key Stage 1 also achieved 23% Greater Depth Standard in Maths which is above the national average.


We strive to ensure all pupils make good progress in their time at the school. The robust tracking systems now in place throughout the school, using both Tapestry and PiXL assessment tools, enable us to monitor pupil progress effectively and to act swiftly to put in place support for those pupils who require additional intervention.


Our assessments are based on the National Curriculum. We are also a PiXL school which gives us access to a wide range of resources around pupil assessment, enabling teachers to identify areas that children have not yet fully understood and strategies to support them to make faster progress. Being a PiXL school also gives us access to a national network of conferences and ensures that we are at the forefront of high quality educational thinking that supports every child in reaching their full potential.


In order to maximise pupil progress in English, Mathematics and Phonics, we carry out regular Pupil Progress meetings throughout the year and follow the national PiXL assessment schedule from Years 1 - 6. 


The children's progress is tracked both in year and also from their Key Stage starting points so that we can easily identify children who may need extra support and/or challenge.


Parents are informed about their child's attainment and progress regularly through Parents' Evenings and Workshops. In July, all parents receive their child's annual report.


If you have any questions or queries about your child's progress, then please arrange a meeting with the class teacher by emailing the school office (
