In line with our Vision which is ‘to provide outstanding education and care that allows every child to reach his or her potential, regardless of background,’ Atwood staff strive to ensure that each child is ready for the next stage in their education. We believe in educating the ‘whole child’ through a broad and balanced curriculum, whilst recognising the absolute importance of supporting them to succeed well in the various statutory assessments.
Academic 'achievement' is measured by a combination of 'attainment' (the national curriculum standard that a child has reached) and 'progress' (the measure of improvement a child has made, relative to his/her starting point, compared to children nationally, with a similar starting point).
Statutory Assessment Results 2018
The results, as set out below (see link to Test and Teacher Assessment Results 2018), show how the school achievement in the KS2 SATs compares with the national results.
The combined Reading, Writing and Maths percentage shows those reaching the expected standard or above in all three areas.
Interpreting a school’s progress scores
A school’s progress scores for English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.
- A score of 0 means, on average, pupils do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A positive score means, on average, pupils do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A negative score means, on average, pupils do less well at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
