OUR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE DATA HEADLINES FROM 2015 Following our improved performance in 2014, I am delighted to share with you that data in EVERY AREA has gone from strength to strength in 2015- it is simply excellent. I am extremely proud of our children for their fantastic achievements. I am also extremely proud of all teaching and support staff as a great deal of hard work is behind these results. I appreciate the continuing dedication and commitment of the staff who all share my vision in enabling our children to learn without limits. If you see the staff, please do take the time to congratulate them on their fantastic hard work for our children. Requiring Improvement schools do not achieve data like this; good and outstanding ones do. For this reason and numerous others, we feel very confident about our forthcoming Ofsted inspection. In our Reception Class children are expected to achieve what is known as a ‘GLD’ (good level of development). 75% of our pupils achieved this. 80% of our Year 1 children entered for the phonics test passed the phonics screen this year. In Year 2 100% of the children who re-sat the Y1 phonics screen passed it. In Year 2 a 2b/2a is the national expectation-100% of children achieved this in all subject areas. The table below shows how we fared in above average attainment: Subject Reading Level 3 (% of children) 38 Writing 31 Maths 38 In Year 6 a 4bis the national expectation, this is how we fared in above average attainment: Subject Reading Level 5+ (% of children) 72 Writing 64 Maths 64 Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar 72 We have also prepared and entered children for the level six SATs tests.
