Key Stage 2 Results & School Performance Tables
An overview of our results can be found at the Department of Education website (follow the link on the side panel). Also, under Key Policies and Files, you will be able to download our own school published reports which show summaries of the National Curriculum assessment results of pupils in KS1 and KS2 for 2015. These documents are published as soon as practically possible following the previous academic year end.
The School operates a Creative Curriculum, which incorporates all the knowledge, skills and objectives of the National Curriculum, while also offering a carefully planned, thematic approach to teaching and learning. For example, recent work covered by ‘In Space, You Can’t Hear Me Scream’ included a special focus on topics including: the Solar System, space travel, the history of space, gravity and a trip to The Science Museum in London.
More details about our Curriculum is available in our School Handbook, downloadable from the sidebar.
Pupil Premium money is provided through the Local Authority to support pupils from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals and other target groups including Looked After Children and pupils of Forces employees.
Each year this funding is used to provide additional intervention programmes for children; this is delivered through teaching small groups, Intervention sessions with Class Teachers and Teaching Assistant support and help towards the funding of Educational Trips, Instrumental Lessons in school and After School Clubs. Children's progress is tracked to ensure that at least satisfactory progress is made for our target children, as we do for all children in our school.
The full funding allocation and expenditure can be seen in the Pupil Premiumm Action Plan to the left.
The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013-2014 and 2014-15 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The PE and Sport Allocation is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. The funding is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and Sport in schools.
To date the school has received £5,131 in 2013/2014, £8227 in 2014/2015 and we expect to receive £9192.50 in 2015-2016. A P.E.& Sport Premium Action Plan has been written by the subject leader following a PE audit. So far this academic year we have spent £150 on transport, £396 on a Youth Sport Subscription, £198 for class cover during training on PE subjects and £4000 to join the Southfield School Sports Partnership which offers various events and coaching sessions to schools.
Key Themes and Priorities:
- To provide high quality teaching and learning of PE and School Sport based on the fundamentals of movement.
- To ensure the school has a developmental PE curriculum that is progressive and fully underpinned by movement fundamentals.
- To use PE and School Sport as a vehicle to improve behaviour and engagement across school
- To increase the opportunities for children to develop leadership skills.
- To raise the profile of PE and School Sport.
