2014 Results (Awaiting validation)

Our latest SATs results for Key Stage 2 (Year 6) are shown below. The scores show the number of pupils achieving at least level 4 in reading, writing and maths, which is the level that most pupils are expected to achieve at this age. Level 5+ shows above average attainment. A vital measure of a school is the the progress each child makes from their year 2 SATs test to their year 6 SATs test. This is now accepted as the best indicator of the effectiveness of the teaching, and of the school.
