Attainment

Ofsted in 2016 said:

‘Outcomes for children in the early years are good as a result of high expectations and a rich indoor learning environment.’

‘Pupils currently in the school are making good progress as a result of carefully planned activities that enable them to do well. Teachers plan appropriately challenging work for most-able pupils to ensure that they do as well as they can.’

‘Pupils’ standards in reading, writing and mathematics are above average in key stages 1 and 2. Pupils have made good progress from their different starting points.’

Pupils behave well. They are articulate and confident. Older pupils thrive on taking on additional responsibilities, including supporting younger ones with their work.’

‘Leaders promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. The school’s core values underpin the whole life of the school.’

 

At Broadwas CE VA School we are extremely proud of the consistent high attainment of all our pupils, both in terms of academic outcomes and in the progress made over time. Our dedicated staff team are committed to supporting the progress of all learners, whatever their background or abilities. Rigorous internal assessment and tracking systems monitor all our year groups to ensure the progress of individual pupils. To meet the needs of our pupils we run interventions across the school for different groups of children, to ensure personalised learning and support, wherever it is needed. A good working relationship with our local Cluster Schools also supports our monitoring and assessment, a rich and broad curriculum and an established transition onward when our children move onto High School.

73% of pupils reached the expected standard in all of reading, writing and maths, compared with 65% of pupils nationally.

When comparing schools, parents should consider that differences may not be significant if you’re looking at a small year group.

For example, in a group of 10 pupils, 1 pupil would represent 10% and in a group of 30 pupils, 1 pupil would represent 3%.

Small schools may see a lot of variation in their results over time due to the effect that 1 or 2 pupils’ results can have on the school average. [1]

The Year Six cohort at Broadwas Primary School included 11 pupils in 2019.

Academic achievement in 2017

As a Primary School our attainment can be compared against national attainment at the end of Reception, in Year 1 for Phonics, Year 2 with end of KS1 assessment, and again in Year 6 with national assessments.

  • In Reception 87% of our pupils had a good level of development, significantly higher than the national figure of 71%.
  • In Year 1 93% of our pupils met the expected standard in Phonics, significantly higher than the national figure of 81%.
  • At the end of KS1 100% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. This was significantly higher than the national figures (Reading 76%, Writing 68%, Mathematics 75%).

The percentage of pupils working at Greater Depth in KS1 at Broadwas were 44% in Reading, 44% in Writing and 33% in Mathematics.

  • At the end of KS2:

In Reading, Writing and Maths combined 73% were at or above the expected standard, compared to 61% nationally.

In Reading 82% met the expected standard, compared to 71% nationally. 9% met the higher standard in Reading.

In Writing 82% met the expected standard compared to 76% nationally. 36% met the higher standard in Writing.

In Maths 73% met the expected standard compared to 75% nationally. 18% met the higher standard in Reading.
