Our Results

Important to Know

At Eden, children perform very highly in national tests and benefit from a rich, creative curriculum. Our aim is for children to leave Eden having achieved as well as they possibly could – and our test scores, well above national levels, bear this out.

League tables can be quite confusing, which is why we like to present our results to you here. There are some important points to be aware of.

Eden is a one form entry school where there are only a maximum of thirty children in each year group.  One child represents between 3 and 4%, depending on the exact number of children in the class.

In a small school that becomes very significant. Our data will be very different year to year. Numbers of children in the class whose first language is not English, numbers of children with Special Educational Needs, children who haven’t been at the school for very long – all these factors will vary year to year and will make a big difference to results.

In the Summer Term 2018 our results were moderated in the EYFS Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. This confirmed that moderation is effective in our school. Haringey Local authority commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved.

This year our School Improvement Partner agrees that our results are, in OFSTED terms, outstanding.

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. In 2018 our judgements were moderated by Haringey Local authority who commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved. In 2019 standards have risen again, reflecting an able cohort and very strong teaching.

*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 learning does not yet include the full phonics curriculum.

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

Statutory assessment tests (SATs) assess children against a national standard and are based on the National Curriculum.

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 second set of 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 National Curriculum.

Pupils take tests in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) and receive a teacher assessment (TA) in writing 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”.

We are delighted with the high standards attained. This year, as well as maintaining the high standards set last year in Reading and Writing, we have been able to increase the scores for Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling and Mathematics, through a rigorous programme of school improvement focusing on these two subjects. In 2018, in addition, our writing judgements were moderated by Haringey Local authority who commended the accuracy of our judgements and the standards achieved.
