Our Standards – ‘How well do our children attain?’
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 in 2018. 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:
St. Luke's C.E. School Outcomes % KS1 Expected Standard
National Outcomes % KS1 Expected Standard
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 that 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 over time.
The percentages of children that achieve above age related outcomes at the end of Year 2 have been:
St. Luke's C.E. School Outcomes % KS1 Greater Depth
National Outcomes % KS1 Greater Depth
Our 2019 cohort did less well than previous years, impacted by high mobility particularly in the Spring and Summer terms, however overall, our outcomes at this higher level compare well with those achieved nationally, highlighting 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:
St. Luke's C.E. School Outcomes % KS2 Expected Standard
National Outcomes % KS2 Expected Standard
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 tend to exceed 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, but they achieved it really well in both Reading and Mathematics since 2017.
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. Additionally, our three-year average mathematics attainment score of 107.1 also places us in the top 20% schools nationally.
Our success in mathematics was joined by Reading as well this year. Key Stage 2 progress in reading (3.8) was judged significantly above national and in the highest 20% of all schools for 2019.
St. Luke's C.E. School Outcomes % KS2 Greater Depth
National Outcomes % KS2 Greater Depth
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 and the proportions of children achieving the higher standard of greater depth for all subjects, and the combined outcomes too.
