School Performance

As a school we have worked in collaboration with the other 8 LPAP (Loughborough Primary Academy Partnership) schools to create a model of assessment that we can use and judge ourselves against; it does not involve levels and sub-levels, but measures of achievement are still possible.

 

Within school we clearly track ‘All Pupil’ data, but also that of groups of pupils and their comparator groups e.g. Boys and Girls, Free School Pupils and Non-Free School Meal Pupils etc.

 

We use an in-house tracking system to track both progress and attainment.

Nationally we make use of a report entitled, 'ASP – Analysing School Performance'- which is an on-line data analysis system that annually reports on school performance.

Locally i.e. from a Leicestershire perspective, we judge annual school performance versus the average of all Leicestershire Schools using a data system called, ‘Perspective Lite’. It is interesting to benchmark against other County schools but essentially we are more interested in judging performance against the National picture to see where we fit in.

It is expected that a school publish its data, and we are pleased to do so.

The data below is the broad headline data for Years 2 (end of KS1) and 6 (end of KS2). There is of course a multitude of data within in a school but the headline data is as follows:

RD = Reading WR = Writing MA = Maths

 

Foundation Stage Attainment on Leaving (AOL): All Pupils Summer 2018

Aspect Strand % Expected
EN RD 76.3%
EN WR 73.6%
MA MA (Number) 69.4%

 

68.0% of the pupils by the end of Foundation Stage attained a Good Level of Development (GLD)
From a broadly average starting point at the beginning of the Foundation Stage the pupils made average‑good progress through until the end of it; they attained broadly in line with National expectations. The outcomes, although not externally moderated, were moderated across the LPAP and one of the school’s EYFS teaching team is an external moderator for the LA.

 

Year 1 Phonics Screening: All Pupils Summer 2018

Year % Pass Rate
2016 76%
2017 72%
2018 93%

Our pass rate has significantly improved this year due to the hard work and dedication of the early years and KS1 practitioners; this is a marked improvement and is what we expect of our pupils.


Y2 and Y6 Attainment is judged by both Teacher Assessment and externally‑produced tests. 2017-18 saw the third year of the revised Testing Arrangements for Years 2 and 6.

The school was externally moderated for Y6 Writing this year and the external moderators openly praised the school's approach to the assessment of Writing; they stated that the evidence we provided was by far 'the best' they had seen and covered more writing genres with more evidence per child than  all other moderated schools. In 2017 we were externally moderated on our Test Administration procedures for Y6 (Reading Test) and all was found to be in line with expected procedures; the school was praised by the assessor for its ‘rigor of practice’.

Scaled Score RD WR MA
100+ (EXS+) 74% 60% 77%
110+ (GDS) 25% 9% 22%


Prior to 2016 ‘levelled attainment data’ showed attainment broadly in line with national expectations at both age‑related and above age‑related levels and this was reflected in a generally improving trend.

Current attainment data shows an improved picture at end KS1/Y2 from end 2016 to 2018. RD and MA are broadly in line with NA at EXS+ and GDS; WR is slightly below the NA (this cohort attained below the NA in the Y1 Phonics Screening test the year before and have made significant improvement during their time in Y2).

Attainment at age‑related levels in the school had been broadly in line with, or above, the National Average for a number of years; but in 2016 and 2017 this was not the case. % attainment at the EXS – Expected Standard - was below the National Average. There has however been an improved %attainment this year (2018) compared to these previous 2 years.

Attainment is, in 2018, broadly in line with NA with pupils attainment at 'Greater Depth' seeing the most marked improvement in RD, GPS and MA. 2 of our pupils did not 'sit' the tests, but because not 'disapplied' their none-scores were included in our %s; had they not been our data, based on 71 pupils (and not 73) would have been:

RD: 70% EXS+  37% GDS

GPS: 77% EXS+  34% GDS

MA: 72% EXS+  25% GDS

 

The schools combined score for RD WR (GPS) and MA has been 'of concern' for the last 2 years (42% 2016, 46% 2017) but we are pleased to be able to report that this year has seen a marked improvement with 62% (64% if based upon 71 pupils) attaining at the age-expected standard across all 3 subjects.

 

The DfE ‘progress measures’ for end KS1, 2015 to end KS2, 2018) are:

Subject Progress Score 95% Confidence Band
RD 0.0 -1.4 to +1.4
WR -1.3 -2.7 to +0.1
MA -0.2 -1.5 to +1.1

Where the 95% confidence interval overlaps zero then the school's performance is not significantly different to the National Average; this is us!


Within school not only is 'All Pupil' data tracked, but also that of groups of pupils and their comparator groups e.g. Boys and Girls, Free School Pupils and Non‑Free School Meal Pupils etc.

We track both the attainment and the progress of the learners using the new ‘progress trajectories’ measure which uses the outcome at the end of the previous Key Stage as the starting point. Progress in WR is the most notable aspect for improvement. Using the same measure our in-house analysis suggests that our disadvantaged pupils are a group of learners to focus upon.

Review of the DfE's (Department for Education's) site will ultimately provide a full breakdown of 2017-18 data; it will give performance data for groups and sub‑groups and is extremely comprehensive.

 

We are not a complacent school, nor can we ever expect to be; we strive for the improvements we wish to see in the progress and attainment we expect for our pupils. We continue to review and evaluate our provision making revisions where necessary; we will continue to do so!
