The results for KS2 have now been published for 2023 and National figures have been provisionally released. Due to Covid-19 we do not have performance measures for 2020 and 2021.
Progress figures for 2023 are representative of 60% of schools nationally. Covid -19 has had an impact on progress figures as pupils missed a significant amount of education in school between KS1 and KS2.
14% of our cohort in 2023 were SEN including two pupils with EHCPs, one of whom did not take the tests (3.5%). We had a very high proportion of pupils in 2022 who were SEN (36%), one of whom 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 103.7 (Nationally 105.1) and for Maths was 105.2 (Nationally 104.2).
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 2023 after 2 years of Covid disruption our results in Writing and Maths were above the national average. Writing was 79% vs 72% nationally and Maths was 82% vs 73% nationally. Reading was slightly below at 68% vs 73% nationally which affected the overall attainment in RWM although we were higher than the national results at 61% compared to 60% nationally. Two pupils (7%) had EHCPs,one of whom did not sit the tests (3.5% of the cohort). 4 pupils in total were registered SEND (14%) one of whom achieved Expected standards. Our average scaled score in Maths was higher than the national average.
In 2023 pupils achieving a scaled score of over 110 achieved Greater Depth.
Overall in Reading, Writing and Maths, 7% of our cohort achieved Greater Depth across the board, 1% below the National figure.
The data includes 1 children who did not take SATs (3.5% 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.
