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.

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

The academic year from 2018-2019 was another year with pleasing achievement for the children at Alderwood. For two consecutive years our results have been 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’. The results show a marginal increase from last year. For three consecutive years, our results have been above the national standard and broadly in line with RBG. 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 delighted that our Year 1 results are above, or in line, with the national standard for the third consecutive year. For the past two years, our results have also been above RBG figures. The proportion of children achieving the phonics retake in Year 2 significantly improved this year (10% increase) and is now broadly in line with RBG and national figures. These results reflect the good phonics teaching that these children have received.

KS1 Summary

Alderwood is a school with a designated special provision (DSP) for autism. In 2018 there were 25 children in the cohort, three of the children in this cohort had ASD, one of whom was 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), was broadly in line with national standards. The % of children that achieved a higher level of attainment ‘Greater Depth’ in Maths was in line with national standards and broadly in line in Reading and Writing. Despite the factors around this cohort, our combined measure for 2018 was in line with national figures.

Our results for 2019 show an increase in the proportion of children achieving the expected standard, across all areas. The percentage of children that achieved a higher level of attainment ‘Greater Depth’ has increased across the majority of areas, including the combined measure which increased by 5%. These results are in line or broadly in line with the national standard across all areas. 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 national figures for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019). We are delighted that 74% of our children left Year 6 reaching the expected standard in all three areas. This is 9% higher than the national figure. This reflects the excellent provision which children at Alderwood receive.

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. We are aware that due to vulnerability factors, narrowing the gap for disadvantaged pupils will always be a focus. However, in some classes, attainment and/or progress of Pupil Premium children exceeds that of Non Pupil Premium children.

Alderwood continues to be committed to tackling early inequalities.

Please see our full Pupil Premium Strategy for 2019 - 2020 under our Pupil Premium tab.
