Our Performance

We are delighted to announce our results following the newly implemented end of Key Stage National Curriculum Tests.  These exams were developed by the DfE with a remit of raising standards.  It is important to note that this has meant that direct comparisons with previous years are not really possible, as attainment and progress markers have changed as well as the raise in what reaching the expected standard means.

However, we can continue to compare Woodchester Endowed Primary School to the national picture for these new tests.  As a headline figure, 53% of all children nationally, achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.  In comparison, 83% of pupils at Woodchester achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.   Nationally, only 5% of pupils achieved a high standard in all three subjects whereas at Woodchester 22% of pupils achieved this high standard. Woodchester is outperforming the national picture substantially.  

Our understanding of how Woodchester Endowed Primary School compares against other schools has been helped by FFT Aspire (an organisation that is responsible for reporting data to schools and local authorities).  The information that they provide includes a percentile rank against all other schools.  We are very proud to be placed  within the top 5% of all schools for the progress that children make and the top 3% of all schools for our attainment (average scaled score).  In other words, if you compare us against 100 different schools, only 5 of these schools would match the progress that children make and only 3 of those 100 schools would attain as highly as our children have in 2015/2016.

These achievements are not due to “exam factory” conditions within our school.  They are the result of the very high expectations of an incredible staff who are constantly looking for ways to improve the learning experience of the pupils through applying our principles of effective teaching.  They are also due to fantastically supportive parents as well as children who are keen to learn and determined to succeed.

Key Stage 2 - Progress

Schools have been advised that a progress measure has been given for each individual subject in KS2 however no overall progress measure shall be given for the school.  We have been advised that for most schools the score will be in the range of -5 to 5, with 0 being the expected score.  Any minus number represents lower than expected progress whilst positive numbers represent better than expected progress.  For example, if a progress score is 3.1, it would represent that the school, on average, that the children within that school score 3.1 points higher on the average scaled score, than is expected.
