Data and Attainment

Since September 2015, the new leadership team has brought about rapid and sustained improvement to teaching, learning and assessment. Teachers use questions skillfully to deepen understanding, to help pupils reflect on their learning and to challenge and extend pupils’ skills and knowledge. The pupils at Alderwood are polite, welcoming and respectful. We are providing a good education for our children and giving them a secure foundation in an increasingly competitive world.

Statutory End of Year Data 2018

There have been significant changes to Key Stage 2 testing arrangements over the past two years. The current tests have higher expectations and are not comparable to the standards achieved prior to 2016.

In this report, you will find:

•    A summary of the key headlines in our data

•    Tables of result for the past 3 years (where applicable)compared to National results

         •  Information about Pupil Premium and how this has enhanced our provision particularly in reading

 

The academic year from 2017-2018 was a pleasing year for the children at Alderwood. Our results continued to improve and are now broadly in line with or exceeding national figures, across most areas - meaning that we are providing a good education for our children and giving them a secure foundation in an increasingly competitive world.

Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS)

In EYFS children are assessed against 7 different criteria.  We publish the percentage of children deemed to be achieving a ‘Good Level of Development’. Although the results show a marginal decrease from last year (4%), that equates to 1 child. Our results have been broadly in line with or above the national standard for three consecutive years. This reflects the good provision in our EYFS.

Year 1/2 Phonics Summary

The Phonics screening test is a national initiative to provide children with the tools they need to become lifelong readers. We are thrilled that our Year 1 results have improved year on year; showing an upward trend but also that we have achieved the national average or above for two consecutive years. Our results for 2018 were also above RBG figures. This reflects the good phonics teaching that these children received.

KS1 Summary

Alderwood is a school with a designated special provision (DSP). In 2018 there were 25 children in the cohort, three of the children in this cohort have ASD, one of whom is part of the provision and did not sit the statutory assessments. The data below (for 2017 and 2018) shows the school data including the DSP children but also excluding those children. Our attainment (excluding the DSP children), is broadly in line with national standards. The % of children achieving a higher level of attainment ‘Greater Depth’ in Maths is in line with national standards and broadly in line in Reading and Writing. Despite the factors around this cohort, our combined measure was in line with national figures. Our reading, writing and combined results for 2018 show an increase in the proportion of children achieving the expected standard. Our results build on the high standards that we achieve in Early Years and reflect the good provision that is provided in KS1.

KS2 Summary

The proportion of children at Alderwood reaching the Expected standard in Reading, Writing, Maths and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar exceeded both local and national figures for 2018. We are delighted that 83% of our children left Year 6 reaching the expected standard in all three areas. This is 19% higher than the national figure. Our results have improved year on year; showing an upward trend. This reflects the excellent provision which children in these classes have received.

Pupil Premium Summary

The government continues to provide funding targeted at addressing underlying inequalities and aiming to tackle the disadvantages that some children experience in life. As a school we used the money carefully to ensure that our vulnerable children achieved the best support possible. One of the measures for assessing the impact of this funding is to look at those children who claim free school meals (FSM).

There is a gap in attainment between pupils who receive the Pupil Premium and children who do not. However, Pupil Premium children, without additional vulnerability factors, are performing broadly in line with Non Pupil Premium children, in some classes. The progress of Pupil Premium children exceeds the progress of Non Pupil Premium children, in some classes. We are aware that due to vulnerability factors, narrowing the gap for disadvantaged pupils will always be a focus.

Alderwood continues to be committed to tackling early inequalities.
