Academic Results

 

We are very proud of all that our children at Guilsborough CEVA Primary School achieve, and one part of this is their academic success.  As a whole school team, we work very hard to ensure that each and every child makes as much progress as they are able during their time with us.  We obviously do not carry out any form of admission selection here, all children of all abilities are welcome.  In a fairly small school, such as Guilsborough, this can mean that our results may vary a little year-on-year.

 

It is important to understand that the national assessment system changed in 2016.  The system for measuring attainment by levels has now finished, and pupils will either be classified as a) working at the expected standard, b) not achieving the standard, or c) working at greater depth within the expected standard.  It is recognised nationally that the goalposts have certainly moved upwards and standards/expectations are much higher than previously.

2016 Results

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

68% of pupils achieved a Good Level of Development overall.  This equated to 17 out of the 25 Reception pupils, and compares to 68.1% of pupils in Northamptonshire schools, and 69.3% nationally. Our class were a particularly young cohort and have now settled very well into Year 1.

Phonics Screening Check

89% of our children (16 out of 18) achieved the phonics standard. This was an increase from 64% in 2015.

Assessments 2015

 

Our end of key stage results are shown below:

KEY STAGE ONE

In 2015, our KS1 attainment results were:

Reading:          Level 2+ 96%     Level 2B+ 82%     Level 3+ 21%

Writing:            Level 2+ 82%     Level 2B+ 71%     Level 3+ 14%

Mathematics:   Level 2+ 93%     Level 2B+ 82%     Level 3+ 11%

 

KEY STAGE TWO

The main measure is the percentage of Year 6 pupils achieving Level 4 or above in reading, writing and maths = 85%.

This compares to previous years:  2012 67%   2013 90%   2014 83%

 

Other headlines include:

15% of pupil achieving Level 5 or above in reading, maths and writing.

89% of pupils making at least 2 levels of progress in reading

84% of pupils making at least 2 levels of progress in writing

74% of pupils making at least 2 levels of progress in maths

 

95% achieved a Level 4 in reading

85% achieved a Level 4 in maths

80% achieved a Level 4 in grammar, punctuation and spelling

90% achieved a Level 4 in writing (this is measured by teacher assessment, rather than a test)

 

95% of pupils achieved a Level 4B in reading  (Level 4B was considered to be the national average, and is higher than Level 4)

75% of pupils achieved a Level 4B in maths

75% achieved a Level 4B in grammar, punctuation and spelling

 

55% achieved a Level 5 or above in reading (Level 5 was the higher level possible)

35% achieved a Level 5 or above in maths

60% achieved a Level 5 or above in grammar, punctuation and spelling

45% achieved a Level 5 or above in writing.

 

Progress

The other important measure we record is the amount of progress each child makes during their time at the school, and particularly between Key Stages 1 and 2.  In 2014, our progress measure overall (value added score) was 99.8, which was a little above the national average.  The prior attainment of this cohort was high, so they did have to work very hard to show any real progress. 

In 2015, our value added score reduced to 98.8.  This was a little disappointing, but can be explained by a small number of children not making expected progress, for some very sound reasons that can be explained, and have been documented.

 

Assessment Without Levels

It is important to be aware that from 2016, the old version of National Curriculum levels have ceased nationally.

From now on, our pupils will still be assessed with a SATs test, but the measures will just be whether they have      MET the national standard or have NOT MET it.

The 2016 tests are a national interim measure, so things could change again - but we'll keep you posted!
