The Department for Education (DfE) is clear that “…while school level data for 2021 to 2022 will provide information about how a school has performed, in relation to local and national averages, it will not provide the broader context around a school’s outcomes…This is particularly important to bear in mind in relation to the 2021 to 2022 data, due to the uneven impact of the pandemic on pupils and schools.” (DfE, September 2022)
Our 2021-2022 outcomes
- The percentage of pupils achieving a Good Level of Development in Early Years Foundation Stage was below local and national averages.
- Our Key Stage 1 results (end of Year 2) for reading and mathematics were above local and national averages and writing results were broadly in line.
- Our Key Stage 1 science outcomes were above local and national averages.
- Our Year 1 phonic results were above local and national averages.
- Our Year 2 phonic results were above local and national averages.
- Our Key Stage 2 results (end of Year 6) for reading, English grammar, spelling and punctuation, writing, mathematics and science were below local and national averages.
Despite outcomes at the end of Key Stage 2 being lower than national averages, our progress scores are the best they have been overall for a number of years. This means that on average most of our pupils do as well at Key Stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. Our EYFS children also made positive progress from their starting points.
