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

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.

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.
