Our Standards – ‘How well do our pupils attain?’

How well do our children attain?

Early Years

This first table shows you the percentage of children who finish Reception in our school with a good level of development (GLD) and also show you how our outcomes compare to those achieved nationally:

Note: We were moderated/scrutinised by the Local Authority across last academic year. The apparent dip in attainment was not a decline in provision but a response to lower on entry data and therefore cohort specific.

 

Key Stage 1: Year 2 National Assessments

This second table shows you the percentage of children who finish Year 2/Key Stage 1 in our school achieving the expected standard for their age or in Reading, Writing and Mathematics:

The impact of the provision here at St. Luke’s means that over time our children achieve at least in line with schools nationally and sometimes better. Fluctuations in attainment reflect the very mobile pupil population that we have here on the Island which can mean that cohorts can suddenly vary quite considerably, however the provision at the school is stable and strong, enabling children to be supported well on entry and to become successful in their learning.

 

It is also worthy of note that the percentages of children that achieve above age related outcomes at the end of Year 2 exceed national outcomes significantly too:

Annually, more children achieve the higher attainment levels in the curriculum than pupils nationally, indicating the level of challenge given to learners to succeed here.

Our data demonstrates that the impact of the provision here at St. Luke’s means that our children do at least as well and often much better than children nationally at the end of Key Stage 1.

 

Key Stage 2: Year 6 National Assessments

This table shows you the percentage of children who finish Year 6/Key Stage 2 in our school achieving the expected standard for their age or in Reading, Writing and Mathematics, their scaled scores and their progress since KS1:

Notes:

  • In 2017 a child was absent on holiday for the whole of testing week. Our teacher assessment is that had she sat the tests, she would have achieved the expected standard. As such our data for reading, mathematics and the combined should really have an additional 3% added.

It is very clear in the data that children at St. Luke’s are doing better than children nationally at the end of Key Stage 2.

At St. Luke’s, the scaled scores for reading and maths are considerably higher than those achieved nationally. Furthermore, a scaled score of 110 indicates ‘greater depth’ learning, the advanced attainment award at the end of Key Stage 2, so it is clear that children did not only achieve the expected standard, they achieved it really very well indeed with 107 and 108 for reading and mathematics respectively.

St. Luke’s achieves extremely well in mathematics. Our school has performed in the top 20% schools nationally for progress in maths, consistently for the last 3 years and the three-year average mathematics attainment score places us in the top 10% schools nationally.

Furthermore, the DfE set a floor standard of 65% for children to achieve the expected standard or better in reading, writing and mathematics all at the same time. The national average in 2018 remains below the floor standard at 64% however at St. Luke’s we are now achieving considerably above it with 71%.

The impact of the provision here at St. Luke’s means that our children’s outcomes in terms of attainment compare favourably with the outcomes achieved by children nationally. It is clear that our children make very strong progress from their starting points, particularly in reading and mathematics. Teachers at St. Luke’s challenge children to achieve their very best which is evident in both the scaled scores but also in the considerably higher proportions of children achieving the higher standard of greater depth for all subjects, and the combined outcomes too.

This data reflects the rapid improvement journey that our school is on as detailed in our 2016 Ofsted report and 2017 SIAMs report.
