‘Good examination results in and of themselves don’t always mean that the pupil received rich and full knowledge from the curriculum. In the worst cases, teaching to the test, rather than teaching the full curriculum, leaves a pupil with a hollowed out and flimsy understanding.’

Amanda Spielman

Ofsted Chief Inspector

 

At Risby CEVC Primary School we are passionate about ensuring our children receive a rich education and, whilst we obviously understand the importance of reading, writing and mathematics, we do not believe our focus should simply be on teaching to the test. If children are given a broad and balanced education; if we know every child in our care and support every child in their learning; if we engage our children in their learning and build lifelong learners, who are eager and curious to discover more about the world around them – then our results will reflect this. And they do. The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with national averages.  

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

  • 87% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years Framework. This was above the national average of 72%. A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

 

Year One Phonics Screening Check

  • 90% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonics Screening Check. This was above the national average of 83%. 

 

Key Stage One

  • 80% of pupils in Year Two attained the expected standard in Reading, compared with the national average of 75%;
  • 77% of pupils in Year Two attained the expected standard in Writing, compared with the national average of 70%;
  • 77% of pupils in Year Two attained the expected standard in Mathematics, compared with the national average of 75%;
  • 83% of pupils in Year Two attained the expected standard in Science, compared with the national average of 83%.

 

This was the third year of the revised testing and assessment arrangements for Year Two and these arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. At the end of KS1 (Year Two), 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 and the current measures are as follows:

 

Working Towards the Expected Standard: Working towards the expected standard for a child at the end of Year Two.

Working at the Expected Standard: Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year Two.

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

 

Key Stage Two

Attainment

  • 71% of pupils in Year Six attained the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics combined. This was above the national average of 64%. The curriculum that was introduced in 2014 provided greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. Test (SATs) results are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80. To reach the expected standard in all of reading, writing and mathematics, a pupil must achieve a scaled score of 100 or more in reading and maths tests and an outcome of ‘working at the expected standard’ or ‘working at greater depth’ in writing, as assessed by the teacher.

Progress

  • Reading: -0.7
  • Writing: -1.2
  • Mathematics: -1.1
