The new school leadership team (in place from September 2017) have developed a rigorous system of assessment, monitoring and evaluation as we strive to match the government’s aspiration for 85% or more children achieving the expected standard. We are extremely proud of our progress towards that target over the last three years as shown below.
Our continuing plan sets out clear expectations in order to reach the targets set for primary schools. Over the last three years, the national average for children reaching the expected standard has been: Reading 71%, Maths 74% and GPS 76%
Children who attend Thomas Jolyffe from Reception through to Year Six typically attain better results. In Reception last year we exceeded both the National and Warwickshire average for children achieving a Good Level of Development (GLD) for the third year in a row. Over 90% of children achieved the expected standard in each of the Prime Learning Goals, including Listening and Attention, Health and Self-Care and Self Confidence and Behaviour.
In Key Stage One 88% of children were working at the required level for Phonics compared to 83% nationally. In Year 2, over a quarter of our children achieved the highest standard of 'Working at Greater Depth' in Reading. One in five achieved the higher standard for Maths and Writing and an average of 81% of children have attained the expected standard or above for Science since 2016.
A breakdown of our results for Key Stage 2 follows:
