Progress and Attainment Data 2016

Year 6 SATs results for 2016

The National Curriculum was changed in September 2014, followed by a completely new method of assessing pupils’ attainment and progress in May 2016. This is the first year of teacher assessment using a new curriculum and against the new interim framework.

The system of levels no longer exists and instead, pupils are expected to attain a National Standard. Reading, SPaG* (for KS2) and Maths are assessed by means of a test, which is externally marked. Writing is assessed by teachers against a framework, based on the performance of the pupil over time, in a variety of contexts. Science is also assessed by teachers.

Alongside the test results, teachers are required to submit their own assessment to the DfE in Reading and Maths. Writing assessments are subject to moderation by the Local Authority and schools are selected at random every four years. The Hythe worked closely with other local schools to moderate work and ensure consistent assessment judgements. The table below shows the percentage of pupils that attained the National Standard and those who were assessed as working significantly higher than National Standard.

Our results data includes both our mainstream pupils and the pupils who attend the Harbour specialist provision meaning that our results may appear lower than other purely mainstream schools.

Year One phonics screening

The phonics screening check is a short, simple assessment to make sure that all pupils have learned phonic decoding to an appropriate standard by the age of 6. All year 1 pupils in maintained schools, academies and free schools must complete the check.

The phonics check will help teachers identify the children who need extra help so they can receive the support they need to improve their reading skills. These children will then be able to retake the check in year 2. The check comprises a list of 40 words and non-words which the child will read one-to-one with a teacher. Please see our phonics results for the last 3 years below.

Assessment at The Hythe for 2016 – 2017

Whole school

The school has streamlined its internal tracking process to measure the attainment and progress of pupils half-termly. Pupils working at objectives below their age group are expected to accelerate to gain a secure knowledge before moving on. There is also an expectation that more able pupils will move to explore objectives in greater depth when they have gained a secure knowledge. Rigorous pupil progress meetings are led by senior leaders that scrutinise the progress and attainment of each pupil with a focus on vulnerable groups such as the disadvantaged pupils, as well as prior attainment groups as included in Raise online 2016. Making expected or better progress since Sept 2016 is measured through a five point scale as pupils’ understanding of core objectives move from entering, to developing and finally secure. More able pupils are stretched by gaining greater depth within these objectives.

Scaled scores from nationally recognised tests are used to support summative teacher assessment judgements. Work sampling and pupil interviews are also used to triangulate these judgements.

Data by the end of the Autumn Term shows that the progress across the school is good for all groups.

Next steps:

Leaders alongside teachers will continue to consistently track the progress and attainment of all groups of children including prior attainment groups and those identified in Raise online 2016. All leaders will continue to focus on accelerating rates of progress for those pupils still working below their expected age and making sure they are on track to access the new end of Key Stage standards.

Early Years

Leadership is focused on continuing the rising trend in the percentage of children reaching a good level of development. The target is set to match national markers and teachers are identifying early those pupils with low attainment in prime areas. Focused teaching and interventions are underway. A rationale, with a three phase plan, is in place for the outdoor learning area and this is all linked to developing early core skills. Training has been delivered by a nationally recognised Early Years’ specialist on developing rich dialogue between adults and pupils and using games to enhance children’s early understanding of mathematics.

Next Steps

Leaders are focused on completing the three phase plan for the outdoor learning environment, as well as meeting the ambitious target set for GLD by the end of the year.
