One of the ways that schools are measured is by our pupil outcomes at end of each phase (Early Years, KS1 and KS2). This also includes phonics in Year 1 and we are compared both against other schools within Hertfordshire as well as Nationally. As a parent you will naturally be interested in how well Kimpton is performing as a school in relation to government strategy and targets set for the primary school sector. As a school this is one of our priority areas for improvement but we are continuing to demonstrate improve year on year.
Please find below the unvalidated data set for 2018 for both KS1 and KS2. This will be confirmed later in the Autumn term.
Early Years Foundation Stage (2018)
|Good Level of Development (GLD)|
A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, mathematics, physical development, communication and language and personal social and emotional development.
Year One Phonic Screening (2018)
|Working At (WA)||Working Towards (WT)|
The 10 children who were working towards in 2016 all passed confidently in Year 2.
Key Stage 1 Teacher Assessment (2018)
|Expected or better||Greater Depth|
|R, W + M||60%||8%|
Key Stage 2 (2018)
|Expected or better||Greater Depth||Average Scaled Score||Progress|
|Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (Test)||55%||78%||25%||34%||102||104||-|
|Writing (Teacher Assessment)||70%||78%||25%||20%||-||-||0.3|
|R, W + M||40%||64%||15%||10%||-||-||-|
The staff and governors continue to spend time analysing this data and using the outcomes plus other school information to form our school development priorities. For this academic year, writing and mathematics continues to feature heavily, especially for our most vulnerable children.
Previous Years Data
So that you can see the pupil outcomes over time, you are able to access previous years data here:
You can access the full attainment results at Key Stage 2 for Kimpton Primary School here: Attainment Tables provided by the Department of Education.
The National Curriculum Online website provides more detailed information about each subject area, statutory guidelines, attainment targets and the description of the levels against which attainment is measured.
Average Scaled Score
What is a scaled score?
A pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil scores in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. Tests are developed each year to the same specification, but because the questions must be different, the difficulty of tests may vary slightly each year. This means we need to convert the raw scores pupils get in the tests into a scaled score, to ensure we can make accurate comparisons of pupil performance over time.
A scaled score of 100 will always represent the expected standard on the test. Pupils scoring 100 or more will have met the expected standard on the test.
