At Primrose Hill ‘We will emphasise the positive achievements of children in school and in their outside activities’. We are proud of all our pupils’ achievements.
Due to the enforced closure as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, 2019/20 and 2020/21 SATS were cancelled. Therefore, pupils nationally did not undertake the tests, nor were teacher assessment results collected for writing. We are therefore unable to publish any data for these two academic years.
School and National Data
The information above and below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages. We are delighted with the excellent results across the school. They are a tribute to the children and the staff.
Early Years Foundation Stage
In 2019, 72% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework. This is above the national (71%) and local (69%) averages.
A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.
Year One Phonic Screening
In 2019, 92% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test. This is above the national (82%) and local (81%) averages and represents a six year upward trend.
Key Stage One
These assessment arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents KS1 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.
The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.
Key Stage Two
Children in Year 6 are also assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum. The curriculum introduced in 2014 provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.
The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80.
Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for their age
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum.
In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a High Standard. Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.
Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science. For further information, please see the leaflet Information for parents KS2 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
