Our Results

Early Years Foundation

Standards in the Early Years Foundation Stage

We are delighted with the achievements of our youngest children at work and at play. The percentage of children in our Reception class achieving a good level of development (GLD) i.e. expected levels or better in maths, literacy and all primary goals is well above national levels and reflects strong teaching. In 2018, in addition, our judgements were moderated by Haringey Local authority who commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved.

*A ‘good level of development score’ (GLD) is assigned to pupils achieving expected outcomes in all the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language) and Mathematics and Literacy. Note that we have thirty children in each year group and that, for us, one child represents approx. 3%.

Key Stage One

Standards in Phonics

The percentages of our children who pass the Phonics Screening Test in Year 1 are well above national levels. Children retaking in Year 2 all pass the test with the exception of some children with significant SEN whose curriculum does not include phonics at present.

% of Year 2 pupils reaching the expected standard 100 91 89.3# 92 96.7 Not yet known

#Note: The apparent dip in attainment in Year 1 2016/Year 2 2017 compared to the previous and following year can be accounted for by the unusually high number of children with significant Special Educational Needs in this group, for whom the Phonics Screening Test is educationally inappropriate at present.

Standards at the end of Key Stage One (SATs Results)

Statutory assessment tests (SATs) assess children against a national standard. The 2016 tests were the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.

Teachers base their assessments on the work from across the curriculum that children have done in class during Key Stage 1. They also take into account their performance in national tests in reading and mathematics when making their judgements. There is no test for writing or science.

The final assessment describes children as:

  • Working towards the expected standard (WTS), or
  • Working at the expected standard (EXS), or
  • Working at a greater depth within the expected standard (GDS). There is no GDS in science

We are very proud of the achievements of our Key Stage One pupils whose results are mostly significantly above national figures in all areas. In 2018, our writing and maths judgements were moderated by Haringey Local authority who commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved.


Key Stage Two

Standards at the end of Key Stage Two (SATs Results)

This year sees our first Key Stage Two results since the school opened in 2011. As in Key Stage One, these statutory assessment tests (SATs) assess children against a national standard and are based on the 2014 primary curriculum.

Pupils take tests in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) and receive a teacher assessment (TA) in reading, writing, maths and science. In the tests, pupils are expected to reach a “pass mark” of 100 out of 120 (a scaled score calculated from the tests).  This is the national expectation.  Those achieving beyond 110 on this scale are deemed to be working at the higher standard or “greater depth”.

School 48.3 44.8 24.1 20.7 n/a
National 27.8 19.7 23.4 34.2

We are delighted with the high standards attained, in particular in reading and writing, and we are confident of being able to build on our Maths and GPS scores with the introduction of some new schemes. Teacher assessment was higher than the results of the test and we have rigorous plans to address this as a school, so that test results accurately reflect the high standards being reached in class work. All assessment is closely monitored by the senior team. In 2018, in addition, our writing judgements were moderated by Haringey Local authority who commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved.
