End of Year 2015 – 2016 Results

EYFS

58% of the children achieved GLD. (Good Level of Development – where an “average” child should be) (The national figure in 2015 was 66%)

Note: In 2015 our GLD was 57% and in 2014 it was 49%.

Year 1 Phonics Screening

84% of the children reached the expected standard.  (The national figure in 2015 was 77%)

Note: In 2015 we achieved 60% and in 2014 we achieved 77%.

Year 2 SATs

Because the KS1 Sats were completely different this year to previous years, the data cannot be compared to previous years.  All judgements are teacher assessment judgements, although Maths and Reading were informed by compulsory tests.  We have not been given any indication about national averages yet.

Children were graded as either:

  • Working at greater depth (above “average”)
  • Reaching the expected level (“average”)
  • Working towards the expected level (below “average”)
  • Foundations towards the expected level (significantly below “average”)
  • P Levels (SEN)

This year we achieved:

Reading – 56% of children reaching the expected level or higher with 15% working at greater depth

Writing – 40% of children reaching the expected level or higher with 8% working at greater depth

Maths – 54% of children reaching the expected level or higher with 8% working at greater depth

Year 6 SATs

KS2 Sats were also completely different this year to previous years and so the data cannot be compared to previous years.  Writing was a teacher assessment judgement. 

In writing, children were either graded as:

  • Working at greater depth (above “average”)
  • Working at the expected level (“average”)
  • Working towards the expected level (below “average”)
  • 4 other levels below this which are varying degrees of significantly below “average”

Reading, Maths and GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) were test judgements.  The children’s test results were converted into a scaled score with 80 being the lowest mark and 120 being the highest.  A score of 100 is considered to be the “average” mark / the “pass mark”.  From this the children were graded as either:

  • Working at the expected level (“average”)
  • Working towards the expected level (below “average”)
  • Achieving a high level of attainment (a scaled score of 110 or more is “achieving a high standard” (above “average”).

This year we achieved:

 

% of Newtons children reaching the expected level or higher

% of children nationally reaching the expected level or higher

% of Newtons children reaching a high standard

% of children nationally reaching a high standard
