Performance Data

What are SATs?

SATs are statutory assessments carried out by all state schools. They assess how your child’s abilities compare nationally with other children in the same year group.

Your child will be assessed at Key Stage 1 (KS1) during Year 2, at age 7.

Further SATs testing takes place at Key Stage 2 (KS2), when your child will take part in National Curriculum tests in English, maths and the new grammar test at the end of Year 6 (usually age 11).

Early Years Foundation Stage:

Children are defined as having achieved a ‘Good Level of Development’ if they achieve at least the expected level in:

  • The Early Learning Goals (ELGs) in the three prime areas of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; and Communication and Language).
  • The ELGs in the specific areas of Mathematics and Literacy

School Good Level of Development 77%


Year 1 Phonics

The Year 1 phonics screening check is a short assessment to confirm whether individual pupils have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard.

It identifies the children who need extra help so they are given support by the school to improve their reading skills. Children who have not met the standard in Year 1 retake the assessment in Year 2.

Number of pupils achieving expected standard – 84.2% (national 81%)


Key Stage 1 (Year 2)

In 2016 the system of assessing and reporting results in Key Stage 1 changed.

The children undertook a series of tests and these, together with class based evidence gathered over the year, were used to inform teacher assessment results for Reading and Maths. The children also received a level based upon teacher assessment for Writing and Science.

As part of the new assessment system, an ‘expected standard’ has been established and children are judged as to whether they are working ‘at the expected standard’ or are ‘working at greater depth’ in Reading, Writing and Maths. Children are judged purely on whether they are working ‘at the expected standard’ in Science.

KS2 Teacher Assessment 2020:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Key Stage 2 SATs did not take place.

Year 6 teachers were asked to provide teacher assessment based on work in books and mock SATs results.

The teacher assessments submitted by Griffin Primary School are cautious results as many children would have made rapid progress in the weeks of teaching leading up to the SATs in May.

Reading – Achieving the expected standard 78%
Reading – Working at Greater Depth 22%
Writing – Achieving the expected standard 74%
Writing – Working at Greater Depth 20%
Maths – Achieving the expected standard 78%
Maths – Working at Greater Depth 22%
RWM combined – Achieving the expected standard 60%
RWM combined – Achieving the expected standard – National 65%
RWM combined – Achieving higher standard 7%
RWM combined – Achieving higher standard – National 12%
Progress:

The teacher assessments carried out in the Summer Term 2020 reflected good progress from the starting points of pupils in each subject.
