Pupil Achievement

The school has a record of consistently high standards, reflecting the hard work by children, staff and the whole school communityWe are not complacent about our position and continue to do all that we can to provide the best education to support the development of the whole child, including academic progress and achievement, within a strong Christian framework.

I am pleased that our school continues to be guided and driven by our school verse and our mission statement, with a focus on the whole child and we avoid narrowing down to league tables and one or two subjects.

We believe that each child in our school is of equal value and worth as we are all made in God’s image. We want to celebrate all achievements in all areas, including where our children display and live out our school values.

We are an inclusive school and welcome all children of differing abilities, and indeed a number of families choose or move their children to our school due to our reputation for support and care, for example, in the area of Special Educational Needs. Many choose our school for our clear Christian values.

We seek to be about the whole child, their talents and skills across all areas and about character development, equipping them to live out our Christian values and thereby make a positive difference.

It is within this context that I share the outcomes for our current Y6. We are always pleased with the results that our children achieve and this year is no exception; a hugely successful set of results that we are incredibly proud of.  Below are the results (in brackets are the most up-to-date national figures available, 2019 for Expected and 2018 for Higher).

EYFS outcomes have been consistently in the highest 20% of all schools nationally. 

The majority of results are significantly above the national level – we are especially pleased with the outcomes in Maths and the phenomenal 60% at the higher standard in GSP – they reflect the hard work of children and staff and the support of parents, well done to one and all! 

Test data shows that children progress well from their different starting points and the proportion of children who meet and exceed the expected progress from different starting points are high compared with national figures. Standards are above the national average and significantly above the national average.

The school is above the Floor standards in both attainment and progress. This is not a coasting school. All of the test results are significantly above the national average, especially at the Higher standard.
