2016 Results at Key Stage 2

The assessment process at both Key Stage 1 and 2 has changed for 2016. The tests, along with teacher assessment in writing, is now more demanding for our children. However, we are still disappointed with the overall results even though many children made every effort to achieve the new expected standards. We are working hard in school to improve attainment for all our current children, especially for the older ones where expectations have risen rapidly.
