Progress Scores

In terms of progress scores our pupils have done well this year, making significantly better progress that children nationally with the same starting points in writing. Our progress scores for 2016 are given below. A progress score of zero, 0.0, is average progress when compared to children with similar starting points. A progress score greater than zero indicates that our children have made greater progress than the national picture.

Reading -0.8   (not significantly different from the national average)

Writing +2.7    (significantly better than the national average)

Maths    +0.7    (not significantly different from the national average)

We are very proud of our pupils and the progress that they have made. As a very ambitious school our aim is to accelerate our pupil progress in areas where we are behind national levels.  Our school improvement plan addresses the areas where we feel attention is required.

We are very pleased that the children performed so well in what have been recognised nationally as being very challenging tests.
