Pupil Achievement & Pupil Premium

The school has a record of consistently high standards, reflecting the hard work by children, staff and the whole school community. We are not complacent about our position and continue to do all that we can to provide the best education to support the development of the whole child, including academic progress and achievement, within in a strong Christian framework.

July 2019 -our latest results:

 I am pleased that our school continues to be guided and driven by our school verse and our mission statement, with a focus on the whole child and we avoid narrowing down to league tables and one or two subjects. We believe that each child in our school is of equal value and worth as we are all made in God’s image, we want to celebrate all achievements in all areas, including where our children display and live out our school values. We are an inclusive school and welcome all children of differing abilities, and indeed a number of families choose or move their children to our school due to our reputation for support and care, for example in the area of Special Educational Needs and many choose our school for our clear Christian values. We seek to be about the whole child, their talents and skills across all areas and about character development, equipping them to live out our Christian values and thereby make a positive difference.


It is within this context that I share the outcomes for our current Y6. We are always pleased with the results that our children achieve and this year is no exception; a hugely successful set of results that we are incredibly proud of.  Below are the results (in brackets are the most up-to-date national figures available, 2019 for Expected and 2018 for Higher).

All of the results are significantly above the national - we are especially pleased with the outcomes in Maths and the phenomenal 60% at the higher standard in GPS - they reflect the hard work of children and staff and the support of parents, well done to one and all!

Test data shows that children progress well from their different starting points and the proportion of children who meet and exceed the expected progress from different starting points are high compared with national figures. Standards are above the national average and significantly above the national average.


The school is above the Floor standards in both attainment and progress. This is not a coasting school.  All of the test results are significantly above the national average, especially at the Higher standard.

As a church school we are focussed on the whole child and acknowledge that academic achievement and attainment is very important, but it is not the only measure of how we perform as a school, or indeed of all that our children achieve. Our mission statement, based on Matthew 5v16, 'Let your light shine that people may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.' ensures that we celebrate all 'good deeds' including academic and non-academic work and encourage the children and adults in our community to look to God to serve others. We are also passionate about being an inclusive school and recognise that children's talents lie in a range of areas, not all reflected in the school league tables and other data sources. We want Pupil Premium children in our school to achieve academically, socially and emotionally.
