Assessment and Performance
Achievement Outcomes at The Dawnay
We are pleased to announce the actions the school took during the 2018/19 academic year significantly improved attainment and progress across school at both KS1 and KS2. We recognise there is still more to be done to ensure this improvement is sustained for the 2019/20 academic year. This year, the school continues to have actions in place to ensure all children, regardless of their starting points, make good progress to achieve either the expected standard or greater depth by the end of each key stage.
If you have any questions about your child’s progress or attainment, your first point of contact should be your child’s class teacher. If you have already done this, and your concerns continue, please contact the school office to arrange a meeting with an appropriate member of the School Leadership Team.
2018/19 EYFS and Phonics attainment
We are pleased that our overall GLD attainment in the Early Years Foundation stage has remained consistently good. We celebrate that we significantly improved our Year 1 Phonics screening results.
Early Years Foundation Stage
|Year One Phonics Screening||73%||86%||82%|
2018/19 Key Stage Two
Improved Percentage of pupils who achieved the expected standard or above in reading, writing and maths
In 2019, 73% of the Year 6 children achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths which continues the trend of improvement of 33% in 2017, 60% in 2018. We are also pleased to see our Great depth combined percentage improve on the results seen over the last two years. We are pleased with the improvement in the achievement of our high attainers and have targeted a higher percentage for 2019/20.
Improved Average progress scores in reading, writing and maths
We have significantly improved our Key Stage 2 progress in writing, reading, and maths progress scores. We must now make our pupil performance more consistent. We want more children to make good progress from their starting points, to build on the foundations that were put in place while they were in Key Stage 1. Improving pupil progress continues to be a priority in our School Development plan for us this year.
Our 2019/20 target is to consolidate the improvement we made during the 2018/19 academic year. We want our attainment and progress data to consistently meet or exceed the National data. (Please note, the schools validated data will be shared once national performance data is published).
