SATs and test results
Below is a link to the Government's website where you can look at any local or national schools and see how we do in comparison.
All schools are required to assess children at different stages of their education, from when they enter school in Reception as a 'baseline' so we know what they already can do, then we observe and assess them at play and in groups throughout the year and score them again at the end of Reception (called EYFS Foundation Stage Profile results). Information about this is here.

In Year 1 children are tested on their phonic knowledge and there is a pass mark currently set at 32 out of 40. If children do not pass, they are retested in Year 2. Information about the Phonics test is here.

At the end of Year 2, children complete the Key Stage 1 SATS tests. These are paper based tests on reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar and maths. More information about these tests can be found here.

Children continue to be assessed in school against Age Related Expectations in Years 3,4 and 5 (copies of these are given to you as each child starts a new year) and then finally they complete the Key Stage 2 SATs in Year 6. More information about this is here.
The Government have decided a child will only count successfully towards a school's score if they pass in all three subjects - Reading, Writing and Maths, which is why results can vary year on year with some children missing in perhaps just one subject. Special Needs pupils, (even those with profound levels of need and EHC Plans) also count towards the school's score, so if there is a class with a high number of these children (which we had in 2017), it is inevitable the KS2 results will be lower. However in 2018 the children did extremely well, which you can see in the tables below.
