Results and Achievements

Dauntsey Academy Primary School

Results 2015 - 16

 

In 2014 a more challenging national curriculum was introduced to primary schools with higher expectations of children’s academic attainment for the end of KS2. Previously children’s academic attainment was reported in national curriculum levels but these have now been removed and replaced with a standardised score. 2016 was the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2 and Year 6. Consequently these results can no longer be compared with data from previous years.

 

The information in the tables below compares the attainment of pupils at DAPS against schools in the local authority (Wiltshire) and the national averages. The following key is used:

Early Years Foundation Stage

A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of english, mathematics, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

At DAPs, 74% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework. This is above the local authority average of 71% and the national average of 69%.

Key Stage One

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

Greater Depth: Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Children at DAPS achieved results significantly above both the national and Wiltshire average.

Key Stage Two

As mentioned, this new curriculum provides a greater challenge for children with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. Currently, Year 6 pupils undertake SATs (standardised assessment tests) in mathematics, reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling. They are given a teacher assessed judgement for writing and science.

The results of SATs are now reported using a scaled score. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80. A score of 100 represents the ‘Expected Standard’. Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are defined as achieving a ‘High Standard’. In Writing the high standard is referred to as ‘Greater Depth’.

The children of DAPS performance was significantly above the national and local authority averages in all areas.

Progress

KS1 to KS2 progress is calculated differently from previous years. Progress scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5. A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.

For example, if a school has a reading score of -4 this would mean that on average pupils in the school achieved 4 scaled scores less than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.

The children of DAPS performance was above the national and local authority averages in reading and in line with the average for writing and mathematics.
