Academic Performance

How much progress do children make whilst at The Trinity CE Primary Academy?

 

  • Children enter the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) slightly below expected levels for their age. The percentage of children achieving a Good Level of Development by the end of their first year in school has been above the national average for 3 years. This shows consistently good progress in the EYFS.
  • Good progress for current pupils has been made in all subjects. The expected progress each year is 3 points. Last year, on average, children achieved 3.9 points in writing, 3.7 points in reading and 3.5 points in maths.
  • The 2015-16 progress data for the whole school shows the vast majority of groups making good progress, including children eligible for Pupil Premium.
  • Good progress has resulted in increasing numbers of children now achieving Age Related Expectations (ARE). At the end of the academic year 2015-16, across the school, the percentage of children at ARE were: 73% in writing, 76% in reading and 75% in maths.
  • Our end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) SAT tests in July 2016 showed that attainment in writing is now above the national average and attainment in maths is inline with the national average.

 

Phonics Screening

The phonics screening check is carried out at the end of Year 1 (June) to show how well your child can use the phonic skills they've learned and to identify pupils who need extra help.  The tests themselves are short, taking no more than 10 minutes to complete.  The check consists of 40 words and non-words that the child will be asked to read to the teacher.  Non words are a collection of letters that follow phonic rules but don't mean anything.  The pass threshold since 2014 has been 32.  If children do not reach the standard they will be given extra help and re-take the check at the end of Year 2. In 2016 The Trinity was part of a pilot scheme organised by NFER (The National Foundation for Educational Research) to re-check children in year 3 who had not reached the required standard in years 1 or 2. The results of this pilot will be published once available.

 

 

  Number of Children Met the Standard
2014 26 39%
2015 25 52%
2016 29 72%

 

 

Key Stage 2 test results

At the end of Key Stage 2 (year 6) children take SAT tests in English (Reading, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Maths. Writing is assessed by the class teacher but moderated with other colleagues and sometimes by the Local Authority. At The Trinity our writing assessments were last moderated by the Local Authority in 2015.

* progress measures were calculated in a different way in 2016 due to changes in the assessment system.

 

The Government has a floor standard which school are required to achieve:

The Trinity CE Primary Academy met the floor standard for the progress children made between their end

of Key Stage 1 and End of Key Stage 2 SAT tests taken in 2016.

Key Stage 1 Results

At the end of Key Stage 1 (year 2) children take tests in English and Maths. These are marked by the class teacher and used to help the teacher, alongside the leadership team, to make a teacher assessed judgement on each child's attainment.
