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.

End of Key stage 2 Test Results 2017

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.

This year at Alderwood, the proportion of children meeting the expected standard in the tests has significantly increased (45% increase). Following 2016 results, we reviewed our Key Stage 2 test preparation provision. Teachers built on the children’s learning and supported them to better access questions in test conditions. The pleasing results suggest this has paid dividends.

Teacher assessments remain an important indicator of the standards children have achieved at the end of Key Stage 2. In line with LA guidance, we have also published teacher assessment alongside test outcomes.

We want to acknowledge how hard children and teachers have worked this year. We are confident that children at Alderwood have had great teaching, delivered through a precise and motivational curriculum.  We are pleased that our children are happy and confident learners ready to move on to their new schools in September.

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

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

In EYFS children are assessed against 7 different criteria.  We publish the percentage of children deemed to be achieving a ‘Good Level of Development’. We are delighted that our results have improved on last year; showing an upward trend and that we have achieved above the national average for three consecutive years. This reflects the good provision in our EYFS.

Year 1/2 Phonics Screening Check

The Phonics screening test is a national initiative to provide children with the tools they need to become lifelong readers. The proportion of children passing the phonics retake in Year 2 has continued to increase. Of the children who did not pass the test last year, 60% achieved the required standard this year.  This is reflective of the good phonics teaching that the children received.

Key Stage One Summary

Alderwood is a school with a designated special provision (DSP). In 2017 there were three children accessing limited mainstream teaching from our Year 2 cohort. The data below (for 2017) 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 Reading and Writing is in line with national standards. Our KS1 teacher assessments were externally moderated through the LA Moderation Cycle, which validated the accuracy of teacher assessment.
