Standards of Attainment

Standards of Attainment


No statutory tests took place in either 2020 or 2021 due to the educational disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Statutory tests did resume in the summer of 2022, but the DfE did not want to publish these results. Therefore, the data below are the results from 2023.


There are no national standards for assessment comparison at the end of Years 1, 3, 4 or 5 for reading, writing, maths or spelling punctuation and grammar (SPAG).


In order to compare standards in these year groups, we use the national data at the end of Year 2 for Year 1, and the national data at the end of Year 6 for Years 3, 4 and 5. This gives us clarity around target setting for these year groups.


We have national assessment averages for reception’s Good Level of Development, Year 1’s Phonics Screening Check and the end of Year 2 and 6 statutory assessments.

All outcomes are reported in the correct way to parents of children in year 2 and year 6 and the governors of the school also scrutinise the outcomes for patterns and trends over time, or if there are particular issues which impact on attainment or progress – for example, pupil mobility.
