SCHOOL RESULTS 2018
The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages. We are delighted with the excellent results across the school. They are a tribute to the children and the staff.
Early Years Foundation Stage
75.6% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years Framework. This is above the 2018 local authority average of 74% and the national average of 71%.
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 Phonic Screening
84% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test. This is above the 2018 national average (82.6%) and just below the 2018 local authority average (86%).
Key Stage One
This is the third year of the revised testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents KS1 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
At the end of KS1 (Yr2), 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.
The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the current measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.
Attainment in Year 2 is demonstrating a 3 year upward trend benchmarking against Frith Manor’s data. Frith Manor’s performance in 2018 is in line with the national average in Reading and Maths and just below for Writing. Attainment is above our high achieving local authority and above the national average in all areas at Greater Depth (wide margins with maths)
Key Stage Two
Children in Year 6 are also assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum. The curriculum introduced in 2014 provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.
The results of the SATs (tests) 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.
Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:
Expected Standard - Working at the expected standard for their age
Greater Depth - Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum.
In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a High Standard. Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.
Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science. For further information, please see the leaflet Information for parents KS2 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
Our results are, once again, extremely pleasing. Frith Manor pupils performed above the national average in Reading and Maths (wide margin in Maths), in line with national average in Writing. Frith Manor attainment is also above 2018 local authority averages in all areas with the exception of writing where Frith Manor was just below the 2018 local average.
Progress score and description
Reading 4.5 - Well above average.
Writing 0.6 - Average.
Maths 3.3 - Well above average.
These scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
The scores are calculated by comparing the key stage 2 test and assessment results of pupils at this school with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with similar assessment results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 1.
A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
A negative progress score does not mean pupils have made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 1.
The majority of schools have progress scores between -5 and +5.
