Internal Summative Assessment Data

Rising Stars Teacher Assessment data and End of Key Stage Data 2019

Target is 75% working at age expectations

Number of children working at or above expected in reading in July 2019:

  • Majority of groups have met target for reading.  In Year 1 Rising Stars only 68% met the Expected, KS1 phonics met the national and therefore the focus in year 1 is to improve simple retrieval comprehension strategies.
  • Gender gap particularly in KS2 is being addressed, through AFA, interventions identified in tracking and choice of core texts and more structured teaching.
  • The gap between Ever6 and Non Ever6 is reducing in years, 1, 3, & Y4.  There is still a gap in Years 2.  ASP data shows large gap in Year 6 2019. Yes Futures and AFA and Pupil Premium money target towards interventions, teaching groups etc. to address this issue.
  • The performance of the WB in Year 6 and Y2 is lower than the rest of the cohort.  In Year 2, 35% of the WB children have SEN. In Year 4, 42% of the WB have SEN, (higher performing).  These children have been identified and specific interventions have been put into place.

  • Spelling target has not been met across the whole school, however this is a whole school focus.
  • Developing vocabulary is a whole school priority.
  • Actions are in place for extra support on developing phonics and spelling strategies. Additional daily phonics sessions have been put in place as interventions.
  • The WB are not performing as well the rest of the cohort across the school, these children have been identified and support is in place to close the gap.

  • All year groups have met the target for Maths except for Year 3 & 5, this is due to high level of need in these classes.  These year groups have put in pace Maths Meeting intervention to accelerate progress of children and to narrow the gap.
  • There is a gap between the attainment of Ever6 and Non Ever6 pupils, in Years 2, 3 and 5.   Ever6 in Years 2 and Y3 have high level needs.  In Year 3, 31% of the Ever6 children have statements and in Year 5 16% of the Ever6 children have statements.
  • Support is in place to target the specific needs of the children.
  • The boys attainment is stronger compared to the rest of the cohort.

The GL English assessment data trend shows a year on year improvement against the national standards, this is the impact of whole school improvement initiative which is to improve reading strategies and vocabulary.  2019 data for Years 1-5 shows the mean average standard age score is significantly higher than the national average in all year groups.  Year 3 score has gone down slightly, due to mobility and 8 new children who joined the cohort during the year.  3 of the children have SEND needs.
