“Learn with a Smile”

Attached is a chart showing school performance over the last 3 years.


While it shows that the 2016 cohort did not perform as well in reading as in previous years - this has been the trend nationally - only 53% of children in the country reached the expected standard in all three areas showing that expectations are now much higher than was the case.

Previously children were 'levelled' with a 4b being expected at key stage 2.
The curriculum has been made harder and levels removed so that children are either at an ' expected standard' or not. Therefore it is not reasonable to compare results in 2015-16 with those of previous years.  

The challenge now is to tackle the new standard effectively so that we make significant progress over the next three years - and we have rigid plans in place to achieve this aim.
