Pupil Achievement

Comparative Results 2016

We are delighted with the attainment of last year's Y6 class, even though the end of Key Stage tests were made harder in 2016 and children were not given the normal amount of time to prepare for them. Across the country, despite their hard work and talents many children have not achieved the new expected standards in these tests, indeed for Key Stage 2; the combined percentage for Reading, Writing and Maths across the country is 53% this year — much lower than previous years, where around 80% of children achieved the expected standard.

This is a result of changes to the National Curriculum and a resetting of the expected standard — it in no way represents the progress and achievements of our children in 2016. We are confident that all of the children made great strides in their learning and are pleased that, despite the range of changes and short timescales the children were subject to, they achieved strong results in very challenging circumstances.
