Due to the pandemic and the children missing out on their time in EYFS and Year 1 our results were lower than we would normally expect. Writing is a focus for the school as a whole, in particular spelling and grammar. Our handwriting is improving but we still need to offer the children more opportunities to practise and improve.

45% of our pupils achieved a good level of development. This was a significant fall compared to recent years. We know that the children's starting points were much lower due to Covid and lockdowns preventing them form accessing nursery and socialising with their family and friends. We are going to measure the level of development at the end of December 2022 (now that they are in Year One) to show we have closed the gaps. We are aiming for 85%.

During the Corona virus pandemic the government decided not to produce any standardised testing in primary schools.
However, standardised tests are only one measure of how children are performing in schools. We believe in supporting and assessing the 'whole child', as do OFSTED. They judge the school on four different areas:
Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Leadership and Management and Personal Development. When we were visited by Ofsted in 2019 we were judged as 'good' in all 4 areas. 
The quality of education in Early Years is a separate judgement. We were again judged as 'good' across all areas.
