School Performance Data



During YR children are assessed against the ‘Early Learning Goals’ as a continuation from on-going assessments in pre-School.

A Good Level of Development (GLD) is attained by children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.


2015-2016 End of YR % GLD
South Wonston(%) National (%)
83% 66%


National screening takes place in Year 1 and 90% of our pupils passed the assessment compared to 81% nationally. Any child who has not met the standard is routinely supported and then reassessed in Year 2.


In 2016, outcomes of Teacher Assessments for Key Stage 1 pupils at South Wonston Primary School were as follows:
2015-2016 End of KS1 (Y2)
% Meeting Expected Standard or Higher
Subject South Wonston (%) National (%)
Reading 75 74
Writing 73 65
Maths 77 73


Summer 2016 was the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflected the more challenging requirements of the National Curriculum, which was introduced in 2014. The Education Secretary, made it clear that results cannot be compared with previous years. For more information please see the leaflet called Information for parents from the Standards and Testing Agency.

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements. The spelling and grammar test could not be used this year as the papers were wrongly shown on the DFE website before the tests took place.

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.


In May each year all Y6 pupils complete end of Key Stage 2 tests. The results of these tests are used to measure the individual progress a pupil has made in their time at primary school. In 2016, there were new Key Stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation & spelling. Writing was not assessed in a test, but as a teacher assessment of pupils’ writing over a number of pieces of work, measured against a list of statements. Tests did not use levels but assessed pupils against a new national standard, reflecting changes to the National Curriculum. This curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.

The table below shows the percentage of children achieving the expected standard and the percentage achieving a ‘high’ level of attainment. A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

Progress Measures are based around a scale where a score of 0 would equate to an ‘expected’ rate of progress. A score above 0 means that the child has made more progress than other children nationally with the same Key Stage 1 average points score. The pupils’ individual scores are combined for a school score.

Our KS2 combined results were disappointing however progress scores from KS1 to KS2 were stronger. The school consequently was above the Floor standards for 2016 set by the Government.
