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. Click here for more information.
The results of these tests are used to inform end of year judgements made by teachers.
At the end of 2017 our assessments were externally moderated by the Hampshire Assessment team. Throughout the year, teacher judgements are moderated within school, at local cluster sessions and at Hampshire moderation sessions.
Our 2017 end of key stage data was based on 19 children in the cohort. Each pupil was worth 5% in total and 21% of the class had identified special educational needs.
2017 Year 2 Data
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.
Our 2017 end of key stage data was based on 25 children in the cohort. Each pupil was worth 4% in total and 12% of the class had identified special educational needs.
