*Good level of development is where children reach the expected standard (early learning goals) within Prime learning areas (communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development) as well as literacy and mathematics.
Staff have worked hard all year to make a difference for the children. We have consolidated our successful work on the characteristics of effective learning and how they impact on pupil learning; and been looking at outside learning. Two of our teachers have spoken at Nursery World conferences to share the excellent outcomes from our work. As we focus on greater depth of learning across the school, there is much we can utilise from these pieces of work in other year groups.

We are consistently above National figures for children working at and above the expected standard. From our children’s starting points this show outstanding progress.

Phonics Screening

  2017 2016
Year 1 National Gainsborough National Gainsborough
Met the Standard 81.3 74.9 81 89.4
Working towards   19.1 18 10.6

We have consistently achieved above National figures for our children meeting the standard within the phonics screening. This year we have a dip due to the mobility of the pupils (leavers and joiners) being at 39.6%. We know we will increase the percentage next year and ensure they are making excellent progress.

  2017 2016
Year 2 National Gainsborough National Gainsborough
Met the Standard   54.5 91 87
Working towards   27.3 7 13

We are just below National – those that did not achieve the level at Y2 were new arrivals (within 2 months of the screening) and children with high needs funding to support their special educational needs. There has been effective targeting of children and a real understanding of what they need to support not just their ability to know, use and blend phonemes, but of the development of them as readers.

End of KS1: Year 2

There are fantastic outcomes for our year 2 children. The impact of the work to develop readers can be seen in these results. Across all areas we are at, or above the National figures. This is with a mobility of children exceeding 36%. Consistently good teaching and communication between staff, as well as effective targeting and support has really impacted. Next steps are to look continue to increase the numbers at the expected and greater depth standards.

We are pleased to report that despite the many changes in curriculum and testing, and higher expectations, across the board our pupils achieved at or above the nationally expected level. We are extremely proud of the hard work and fantastic achievement of our pupils, and of course this would not have been possible without the support and commitment of our staff, parents and carers.

Our progress data show us to be significantly above National. Staff worked hard to really accelerate the learning for the children. It was after January when we had a better idea of the expectations of the new ‘testing’ and the interim framework for end of key-stage assessment. I am very proud of how hard the staff worked and impacted on the children’s learning. The teachers successfully managed the social and emotional aspects for the children and prepared them well.

All our reportable data clearly shows the good and better levels of attainment and progress achieved by our pupils; we are either broadly in line with, or significantly above National levels for both. This is a great effort so it is a huge THANK YOU and an even bigger WELL DONE to everyone!
