Year 6 children undertook reading and maths tests in May 2017. Writing is not assessed in the same way using a test but through teacher assessment which is moderated and standardised both with colleagues in school, colleagues across our cluster of 8 schools and with the Local Authority. We follow this good practice of checking with both maths and reading also. The writing is measured against a list of statements and considers a number of pieces of a child’s writing over time.
Historically, we have a very good track record of performance at KS2 and consistently perform above the national and local averages. In 2016, a special and unique set of circumstances altered our results from the norm and in 2017, this has regained our usual trend of good results whilst taking into account a number of changes of children within this year group – many joined us at the start of Year 5 and some part way through Year 6.
