At Greenfields, we have a strong track record of children achieving well; outcomes throughout school in the 2017 national assessments were all in line with or above national averages:
- At the end of Early Years (Reception Year), 84% achieved a Good Level of Development, 13 percentage points (ppts) higher than the national average of 71%.
- At the end of Year 1, 90% achieved the expected standard in the phonics check, 9 ppts higher than the national average of 81%. In addition, we have a 3-year trend of 100% achieving the expected standard by the end of Year 2, which is also higher than the national average.
- At the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2), attainment in all subjects was above average and in the highest 10% of all pupils nationally.
- At the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6), 61% achieved the expected standard in all three of the end of Key Stage 2 assessments in Reading, Writing and Maths, which equalled the national average.
DfE Advice on comparability over time in KS2:
‘Children sitting key stage 2 tests in 2016 were the first to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics. It would therefore be incorrect and misleading to make direct comparisons showing changes over time. For example, it would be wrong to say that ‘the percentage of pupils nationally achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics fell from 80% in 2015 to 53% in 2016’.
