Celebrate! 2018-2019 Results

Once again, in every year group, our results have been outstanding! They are outstanding in terms of individual attainment, progress from individuals starting points and also collectively as year groups in relation to what children achieve nationally.

This year I was thrilled that our school was moderated as it was another opportunity to confirm our excellent practices to external professionals. You can see some of what they were said in the quotes we have included. What a great year for primary education in Torpoint with both us and Carbeile having our assessments confirmed and praised by external moderators.

I believe our results reflect the quality of our teaching and our exciting curriculum which draws upon the interests of the children. They are also thanks to the excellent support you as parents give to your children. Thank you for your continued support               Elisabeth Carney-Haworth OBE, Head Teacher

Early Years Foundation Stage 

At the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS: Nursery and Reception), children are assessed against a National EYFS Profile.

Significantly more children in our school achieve a Good Level of Development than children nationally, 88% of our children this year compared to last year’s national percentage of 72% 

 

Year One Phonics Screening 

Every Year One child across the whole country takes a Standardised Phonics Screening Check. Each test consists of 40 words: 20 “real” words and 20 “alien” words. Since 2012 when the phonics screen was introduced a much higher percentage of our children reached the expected standard than the percentage of children nationally,

End of Key Stage One 

At the end of Key Stage One (End of Year Two) all children in England  are assessed against nationally published and moderated standards.

These assessments are carried out by the child’s class teacher. Teachers use the results from national curriculum tests in English and mathematics, commonly called SATs, along with the work your child has done throughout the year, to help them reach their judgements about how your child is achieving at the end of Key Stage 1. This year our school’s assessments were moderated as part of the routine national moderation programme. These moderations confirmed that our teachers are excellent at assessment; not only was every level agreed but our assessment practices were praised and some were even taken to share with other schools!

Our schools results for Working at the Expected Standard nationally and for working at Greater Depth than the Expected Standard are consistently well above national results.

Notes. (1)  Year on year variations in results reflect the make up of the year group being assessed –- for example results can be affected by numbers of children with Special Educational Needs or pupil mobility.  (2) Assessment expectations from the Government change over time; Key Stage One assessment changed in the 2015-2016 academic year, The Early Years Foundation Stage Profile was new in the 2012- 2013 Academic year.
