The results for KS2 have now been published for 2022 and National figures have been provisionally released. Due to Covid-19 we do not have performance measures for 2020 and 2021.
Progress figures for 2022 are in line with the national average and representative of 60% of schools nationally. Covid -19 has had an impact on progress figures, particularly in Writing.
A significant proportion of our cohort in 2022 was SEN (36%) and one pupil with an EHCP did not take the tests (3%). A similarly high proportion of our cohort in 2019 was SEN (33%) and 4 of these pupils (8%) did not take the SATs tests.
At West Hill the average scaled score for Reading was 104.8 (Nationally 104.8) and for Maths was 104.3 (Nationally 103.8).
Progress measures, introduced in 2016, are a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment in Key Stage One. Most schools’ progress are expected to fall between -5 and +5, with the national average being set at 0.
In 2022 after 2 years of Covid disruption our results in Reading and Maths were above the national average despite a high level of SEN pupils (36%). Reading was 82% vs 74% nationally and Maths was 76% vs 71% nationally. Writing was slightly below at 64% vs 69% nationally which affected the overall attainment in RWM at 55% compared to 59% nationally. One SEN pupils did not sit the tests (3% of the cohort). Our average scaled score in Reading and Maths were exactly in line with the national average. In 2019 our results were adversely affected by the high proportion of pupils with EHCPs with SEN pupils making up 33% of the cohort. In 2019 4 children did not take SATs (8% of the cohort).
In 2022 pupils achieving a scaled score of over 110 achieved Greater Depth. There was a very high proportion of SEN pupils this year, 36%. The improvement in Maths was pleasing at 21% whilst Reading and Writing were more greatly affected by this cohort and more in line with 2019 which had a similar level of SEN pupils (33%).
The data includes 1 children who did not take SATs (3% of the cohort).
Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. It is allocated to schools per child eligible for free school meals (FSM). It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.
