EARLY YEARS

During Reception children are assessed against the ‘Early Learning Goals’ as a continuation from on-going assessments in pre-School. By the time they left Reception in 2016 76% achieved a "Good Level of Development" compared to a national average of 66%.

YEAR 1 PHONICS SCREENING

National screening takes place in Year 1 and 95% of our pupils passed the assessment (compared to 81% nationally). Any child who has not met the standard is routinely supported and then re assessed in Year 2. This great achievement puts us in the top 8% of schools nationally (please click here to see a congratulatory letter from Nick Gibb MP).

KEY STAGE 1 ASSESSMENTS

In 2016, outcomes of Teacher Assessments for Key Stage 1 pupils at Weeke Primary School were as follows:

% Meeting Expected Standard or Higher
SubjectWeeke (%)National (%)
Reading8574
Writing8065
Maths8173

KEY STAGE 2 ASSESSMENTS

In May all Y6 pupils complete end of Key Stage 2 tests. The results of these test are used to measure the individual progress a pupil has made in their time at primary school. In 2016, there were new Key Stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation & spelling. Writing was not assessed in a test, but as a teacher assessment of pupils’ writing over a number of pieces of work, measured against a list of statements. Tests did not use levels but assessed pupils against a new national standard, reflecting changes to the National Curriculum.

The table below shows the percentage of children achieving the expected standard and the percentage achieving a ‘high’ level of attainment. A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

Progress Measures are based around a scale where a score of 0 would equate to an ‘expected’ rate of progress. A score above 0 means that the child has made more progress than other children nationally with the same Key Stage 1 average points score. The pupils’ individual scores are combined for a school score.
