School Performance Information

A significant amount of performance information is gathered about children at school. The most important information is that which is gathered by the teachers every day. This is gathered in many different ways, then teachers use this information to plan the next steps of learning for the children they are working with.
Information is also gathered across the school and then carefully analysed. Leaders use this data to identify areas of best practice, training and resource needs and pupils who require different support. Ultimately, this ensures children are achieving the very best that they can achieve their potential.


The Department for Education requires schools to complete statutory assessments at certain points during a child's time at primary school:
Reception class

  • The Reception baseline assessment (RBA) will be statutory for all schools from September 2021.
  • Early Years Foundation Stage Profile at the end of Reception year.

Phonics check

  • The phonics check is administered towards the end of Year 1 in normal years, with the requirement to repeat it in Y2 with any pupils who do not meet the required standard.

End of Key Stage 1 (Year 2)

  • In normal years, the end of Key Stage 1 teacher assessment in mathematics and reading is informed by externally set, internally marked tests.  There is also an optional externally set test in grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) that is intended to inform the teacher assessment of writing. 
  • Science is teacher assessed.
