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, we are attractive to a number of families, particularly those whose children may be summer born and parents feel would benefit from the nurturing environment we provide or those who have special educational needs. Both of these factors can significantly influence our results year on year. In a class of 25, 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 worth just over 1.5%. Therefore, all our results include two sets of school data; the first to include all pupils and the second to only include pupils who do not have identified special educational needs as a comparison.

Year 2 - End of Key Stage 1 Assessments
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.

Key stage 1 and 2 national curriculum tests: information for parents


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


At the end of Key Stage 1 children are given one of four judgements in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science

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

 Year 2 Data

Expected Standard+ includes all children who achieved Expected or Greater Depth 

This data represents the % of children in the class who achieved Greater Depth


Year R - End of Early Years Foundation Stage Assessments

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 EYFS 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. As is the case for the Year 2 staff, our Year R staff moderated their judgements extensively both within and across school and at Hampshire moderation sessions.
