Performance data

During their time with us, children will be formally assessed at key points in their school career, in addition to ongoing daily assessment for learning. The results of the formal assessments are used by the DfE to measure attainment and standards.

As a small school with a maximum of 25 children in each class each pupil is statistically worth 4% in comparison to an “average” 2 form entry infant school which has 60 pupils in the year group, making each pupil statistically 1.6%.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage Assessment

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, children are assessed against the seven areas of the EYFS. These assessments are made throughout the course of the year. At the end of the year, children are judged as to whether they have achieved a ‘Good Level of Development’ (GLD). To achieve GLD, children must achieve the Early Learning Goal in the three prime areas of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language) alongside the specific areas of Mathematics and Literacy.

Year One Phonic Screening Check

The phonics screening check is a statutory assessment for year 1 pupils (typically aged 6) that confirms whether they have met the expected standard in phonic decoding. Pupils who do not meet the standard in year 1 or were not checked, will take part in the check at the end of year 2 (typically aged 7).

End of Key Stage 1 (Year 2)

During May in Year 2, pupils across the country sit national curriculum tests in English and maths, commonly called SATs. See the links below for more information.

The results of these tests are used to inform end of year judgements made by teachers.

PKF - the child has not yet achieved the expected standard

WTF - the child is working towards the expected standard

EXS - the child has met the expected standard

GDS - the child is working at a greater depth within the expected standard
