Pupil Progress 2016-17

The following information is based on the interim analysis of the pupil progress data for 2016-17. In practice it is unlikely to change but needs to be ratified by the Governing Body through the Pupil Progress Report 2016-17 which will be published at the end of October 2017.
The analysis of pupil progress for 2016-17 shows the continuing strong outcomes for our pupils across all age ranges, need types and sub-cohorts. The outcomes are still in advance of the National outcomes and have improved, once again, in the key cognitive areas of Number and Reading; this improvement is a trend that has continued each year from 2014 when the pupil outcomes were judged by Ofsted as 'outstanding'.
The tables below shows the comparison of the End of Key Stage results for actual pupil averages in 2016-17 for Reading and Number and the same comparison for the 'trend' data,that is the smoothed average across all age groups.
 Reading   Average Values     2017 
 Year Group 

  Pupil Actual

 Pupil Trend  


2 5.9 6.4 5.0
6 7.4 7.7 7.1
9 8.7 8.5 7.8
11 9.2 8.7 8.0
 Number    Average Values          2017 
  Year Group   Pupil Actual  Pupil Trend 


2 6.1 6.4 5.5
6 7.9 7.8 7
9 7.8 8.4 8.0
11 8.8 8.8 8.5

The following graph shows the Reading average trends across all age groups for 2014 (green), 2015 (red), 2016 (blue) and 2017 (yellow) compared to the National trend (grey). The pupil data is very strong, showing not only above the National average in all year groups but year-on-year improvements since our 'outstanding' results in 2014.


The next graph shows Number avearge trends for 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 compared to National (same colour code as above). The graph shows our 'outstanding' results for 2014 and our year-on-year improvements from this date. The school had noted in its self-evalations that, although Number averages were strong, they were not as strong as Reading averages. The school put in place a Maths development target and we are pleased to see the year-on-year increases and the very strong 2017 results that are clearly above National averages. This Maths development target continues into the coming year and we expect to see a further improvement in our pupil progress results in 2018.
