We have plotted a graph to show the performance of our children at assessment points through school. Data is collected at many times throughout the year but these key points give you a picture of how our children are performing compared to all children nationally.
Towards the end of Foundation Stage 2, children are assessed as to whether or not they have achieved a GOOD LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT, this includes all areas of the curriculum.
Towards the end of Year 1, children are tested against a phonic standard (they need to use their skills to decode familiar and unfamiliar words).
Towards the end of Year 2, children are assessed and tested in Reading, Writing, and Maths.
Towards the end of Year 6, children are assessed and tested in Reading, Writing, Maths and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar)
The orange line on the graph shows how all children performed nationally.
The blue line on the graph shows how children at Skelton performed.
What does this mean?:
- In Foundation Stage 2, our children achieved in line with national at the Good Level of Development (We are particularly pleased that there was no gender gap when the children left FS2)
- In Year 1, our children underperformed this year in the Phonic screening, which is based solely on phonic acquisition. In school Reading data indicates that word reading and comprehension at higher than this with 85% of children reaching the expected Y1 standard.
- In Year 2, our children outperformed the national average in all areas by between 10% and 15%. Even our disadvantaged children outperformed the averages of ‘all pupils nationally’ in reading and maths.
- In Year 6, once again our children have outperformed national average in all subjects by between 10% and 18%. The disadvantaged group of children also outperformed the averages of ‘all pupils nationally’. We are absolutely delighted by the performance of our oldest children.
