* 2016/17 data will be available in November.

The Good Level of Development measure for our school is 71% (National 69%). The proportion of children that achieved a GLD in the EYFS has been above the national average for the past 3 years. The EYFS Profile score has remained at 38.4 which represents the highest average score in the last 3 years and equivalent to 2014-2015 when the GLD percentage was 85%. In all areas of learning in EYFS, Expected + is 84% or above in each area. The percentage of FSM pupils in EYFS achieving GLD shows a 4-year upward trend (20%, 50%, 67%, 71%). The gap between FSM and Non-FSM in EYFS is only 0.3%. The gap between boys and girls attainment in EYFS has narrowed from 8.0% to 6.2%.

All of KS1 data is based on teacher assessment.  The combined RWM percentage for our school is 66% (B&H 60% and National 60%) and the combined RWMS is also 66%. 

It is interesting to note that in terms of attainment for the end of KS1, the percentage of children working at the expected standard and those working at greater depth in each of the three areas- Reading, Writing and Maths are in each case both above the national average and above the average for outstanding schools. 

The percentage of children reaching the expected standard in Phonics in Year 1 was 91.0% for 2015-2016 which is 10% higher than national, 9% higher than outstanding schools and 4% higher than last year. The three year trend shows an increase of 43% since 2013-2014. 

The percentage of children reaching the expected standard in Phonics in Year 2 is 93.0% which is 2% higher than national, 2% higher than outstanding schools and the same as last year for our school. The three year trend shows an increase of 16% since 2013-2014.

The data shows that in 2015-2016 62% of the children reached the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths, which is 9% higher than the national average, the same as for outstanding schools and an increase from last year when the measure was the percentage of children achieving Level 4 (117% vs 114 %).

It is interesting to note that the percentage of children achieving at the higher standard is higher than National in all areas and that the scaled scores for Reading and Maths are both higher than the scaled scores for Outstanding schools. In Reading the Disadvantaged children’s scaled score is higher than non-disadvantaged children nationally and only just below for Maths.

The overall progress scores ensure that the school meets the National Floor Standards set for 2015-2016 (-5 in Reading, -7 in Writing,-5 in Maths). Our three year data also ensures that our school is not classified under the latest DfE definition of a coasting school.
