Pupil ATTAINMENT & PROGRESS

Yr6

"Achievement is good in all subjects and for all groups of pupils. Improved teaching in Key Stage 1 ensures pupils continue to make good progress, so that, at the end of Year 2, their attainment has risen to below average in reading, writing and mathematics. In Key Stage 2, the rate of progress is good and has accelerated since the previous inspection due to improved teaching."       Ofsted, February 2013.

Click here (national database) and here (GPS data) for the DfE Performance Tables, providing information on the attainment of year 6 pupils, plus other statistics and comparisons related to budget and staffing.

Assessment data shows clearly that in general, our children enter our Early Years with attainment that is well-below the national average for their age, and well-below the local (Sunderland) average too. Our data also demonstrates clearly that pupils leave Grangetown with attainment close to or above local and national age-related attainment. Thus, at Grangetown we add significant value, because our children make good progress as they move through the school. Teacher Assessments in Year 6 in Summer 2016 broadly maintained this trend, though the SATs results themselves - part of a revised & much more challenging assessment system - were somewhat mixed (very strong results in the Spelling, Grammar & Punctuation, close to national average in Maths, but a 'dip' in Reading; having said that, it in in Reading that our children progressed the most (i.e. progress since Year 2), and this is backed by 'national' DfE data (progress score of 0.4). What we do know for certain is that the Year 6 children worked incredibly hard, were taught by a brilliant teacher, and were supported by a fantastic TA - we are very proud of our children and staff - they were, and are, magnificent!

Summer 2016. Due to the significant changes in the national assessment system in 2016, comparisons with previous years ('levels') are not possible. Therefore, we are providing the 2016 Assessment Data as a 'stand-alone' section, and then we will provide assessment data relating to 2015 and pre-2015.
