Attendance 2021

Our most recent attendance figure from March 8th 2020 when schools fully reopened is 95%. Despite the pandemic and all that it has brought to bear, we are proud of this figure which is due to the school’s constant, rigorous drive to ensure that children are punctual and do not take term-time leave. Our target for 2021 – 2022 is 98%. We know that there are clear links between strong attendance and outcomes for attainment and achievement.

End of Key Stage 2 Assessments (SATs)

Each child in Year 6 undertakes a reading, spelling, grammar and mathematics test in May. These tests are sent away for marking and the school receives the results in July. However, due to the Pandemic which began in March 2020, these tests (in 2020 and 2021) were taken internally, in school and although the results were sent to the Local Authority, they are not externally validated. Children remained at home for large periods of time and were required to learn through online resources as well as paper packs sent from school, many children missed the constant face to face teaching throughout the day. The school did everything possible to mitigate this as the pandemic progressed e.g. tuition and gap analysis.

End of Key Stage 1 Assessments

New assessment standards were introduced for children at the end of Key Stage 1 in 2016. Each child is given a test for reading and mathematics. The results of these tests are then combined with regular teacher-assessment of a child’s work to determine if they have reached the ‘expected standard’. However, due to the Pandemic which began in March 2020, these tests (in 2020 and 2021) were taken internally, in school and although the results were sent to the Local Authority, they are not externally validated. Children remained at home for large periods of time and were required to learn through online resources as well as paper packs sent from school, many children missed the constant and consistent face to face teaching throughout the day. This was particularly challenging for younger children who need more one to one contact with their learning. The school did everything possible to mitigate this as the Pandemic progressed but some of this absence and family illness was reflected in the end of year results. The school has a robust plan for supporting children with ‘catching up’ through our Recovery Curriculum.

Year 1 Phonics Screening Test 

Children in Year 1 take part in the National Phonics Screening which monitors a child’s knowledge of the sounds which letters make. Each child is assessed by the class teacher in June. We have consistently remained above both Camden and the national average. During the pandemic, the school endeavoured to teach daily phonics online; phonics materials were also sent home. However, the children missed the regular face to face, booster and 1-1 tuition of phonics and this is reflected in the class results. The school has a comprehensive, phonic plan in place for September 2021 to enable the children to meet and or exceed the required standards in the coming months.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Results

At the end of Reception Class, children are assessed against a set of ‘Early Learning Goals’ in the EYFS document, ‘Development Matters’. The class teacher assesses each child informally, based on daily observations in class. However, some of these children had very little formal school in the year 2020-2021 due to lock down and families managing Covid within their homes. Children of this age have limited abilities to learn online and so the school sent well-resourced activity packs home for the families and the teachers uploaded story times and learning activities to cover the 17 strands of learning. However, the lack of time in school has impacted on the EYFS outcomes. The school will endeavour to adjust the curriculum (whole new learning outdoor space has been created) and accelerate the children’s learning in September 2021.

Percentage reaching a ‘Good Level of Development’  68%  72%  72%  63%  This cohort of children missed a great deal of school and there was not sufficient material to accurately assess. The children will complete ‘baseline assessments in September 2021.

To reach a ‘good level of development’, children must meet or exceed the Early Learning Goals in all Prime Areas of learning, as well as Mathematics and Literacy.
