Children at Good Level of Development (GLD) when leaving Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS): 79% (National: 66%)
Children in Year 1 take a phonics assessment test,
Key Stage 1
In Key stage 1 children take statutory assessment in Reading and Maths and the Writing and SPAG were teacher assessed.

Children sitting key stage 2 tests this year were the first to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics. It would therefore be incorrect and misleading to make direct comparisons showing changes over time.
In 2016, 62% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths, combined (compared with 53% nationally).
The National scaled score to achieve the expected standard is 100, however we achieved
The reading test was extremely hard this year – something widely reported and commented on in the media and social media. It also raises the importance of reading and discussing what is being read at home. Some of our children struggled for three main reasons:

We continue to offer challenge to all children, including higher attaining pupils. Scaled scores of over 110 are considered ‘high scores’.
14% of our pupils achieved a high level of attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths, combined (the national proportion was half this: 5%)
