School Performance 2018 & OFSTED Links
We are very proud of every child's achievements at Christ Church. We work hard and aim to try and out perform national expectations at every level. This page provides an explanation and summary of how our pupils perform against national and local measures.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS or Reception Class) 2018
Achievement at the end of the children’s first year at School is measured by assessing if individual pupils have met a ‘good’ level of development across a range of different goals. The table below shows the percentages of pupils that have met a ‘good’ level of development in all of the areas. At Christ Church in 2018, we are pleased to say that we surpassed national averages by 9%.
|EYFS||Total no pupils||% of pupils that achieved a “Good” Level of development across areas|
Year 1 Phonics Screening 2018
Children are tested at the end of Year 1 on their phonics knowledge. This is done by children reading 40 words and nonsense words. Children who correctly attempt the threshold amount (this year 32), are deemed to be working at the expected level. Children scoring below the threshold are deemed to be working below. These children are then given extra phonics support in Year 2 and re-tested at the end of the year.
|Year 1 Phonics||Total no. of Year 1 pupils||% of pupils working at the required standard (32+/40):|
In 2018, 93% of our children that retook the test in Year 2 passed.
Christ Church Key Stage 1 Results 2018
When children reach the end of Year 2, they are teacher assessed across a range of different subjects to see if they are attaining 'below' (not yet at National Standard), 'at standard', or 'exceeding' the National Standard. This assessment measure is much harder than the 'levels' system used in the past. Despite this, standards of achievement at Christ Church still remain high. In 2018, pupils at Christ Church surpassed national averages in all of the attainment measures illustrated in the table below:
Christ Church Key Stage 2 Results 2018
When children reach the end of Year 6, they are again assessed across a range of different subjects to see if they are attaining below, in line with or above national expectations. They are assessed:
By their teachers, who base their judgements on how the child has performed across not only the year, but during their time at Christ Church
By sitting their Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs). These are tests that take place at the School in May and are marked externally
Tests at KS2 are now much harder to reflect an advanced curriculum. A School will initially aim to ensure that its pupils are ‘secondary ready’. A child who is deemed to be 'At Standard' would be secondary ready. A child not yet at this level would be deemed to be 'Working Below' the National Standard. Children working above the national standard would be deemed to be 'exceeding'. In 2018, pupils at Christ Church surpassed national averages in all but one of the attainment measures. This is particularly impressive if you consider that the curriculum is now much harder. These results are illustrated in the table below:
|Reading||Writing teacher assessment||Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling||Maths||Reading/writing/maths combined|
Key Stage 2 Value Added Progress Scores 2018
Writing: - 1.6
Maths : 4.3
Key Stage 2 Average Scaled Scores in Reading, Maths and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling 2018
Reading - 109 average scaled score
Maths - 110 average scaled score
GPS - 111 average scaled score
