Progress February 2017

Progress Report

 

Half way through the year and it seems a good time to tell you about the progress that has been made at your school!

The last three years have not seen the school make the progress that it should have done but now things are well on the way to improving with the children succeeding and making the progress that they are entitled to!

Below you will see some tables which show the number of children who are already at the expected level within each year group.

You will see that half way through the year, the year six results are already as good as those achieved by last year’s, year six children! We are expecting a big improvement on last year’s results and we are confident that with the continued hard work of both the children, staff and parents we will see this.

You can also see the progress that has been made during the first six months of this year and comparing it with the same period of time from last year. If we look at the present year six at this point last year:

In every case the children are doing better than they were at this time last year! The only exception to this is Mathematics where the children have continued to make good progress.

This is also true in other year groups. The tables below are all from February 2016 and show the number of children in the present year group who were on target then and the increase that that there has been now:

As can be seen in each year group there are now more children working at the expected level in every subject that there were at the same point this time last year. The only exception to this is with Year 5 mathematics. As you can see from all the data, the children’s attainment in Mathematics was stronger last year than in the other subjects, the other subjects have caught up. Our assessments in Mathematics are now much more accurate than they were last year and in year five the step up in terms of expectation is reflected in this year’s attainment.

We are not in the habit of resting on our laurels! We expect every child to fulfil their potential and we are aiming for 100% of children reaching the expected level in all subjects with as many as possible working above expectation.

In no way are we neglecting other curriculum areas! Music is a real strength in the school with children singing at both Snape Maltings and the O2. Children have a varied curriculum with lots of exciting opportunities to ensure that they succeed and grow as individuals.
