Assessment

SATS did not take place in 2020. The Year 6 cohort returned on 1st June 2020 and achieved 97% attendance between June 1st and the end of the academic year. The data reflects teacher assessment for 2020 across the core subjects. The DfE school performance website can be found at www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance/index.html.

  • Baseline assessments for children entering into Nursery and Reception are made in October of each year and progress is reviewed termly. We believe the December data to be more reliable as it allows for ‘settling in time’ and a term of really getting to know the children, therefore offering a more informed assessment. Baseline data for December 2020 is as follows;

The Year 1 cohort for 2020 were unable to take the test until the autumn term (2020) due to the national lockdown. Three children, two with exceptional needs and one with English as an additional language alongside Special Educational Needs, were disapplied.

 

The twenty seven children who took the test in the autumn term of their Year 2 all achieved the expected standard.
