Outcomes of Pupils

At Pyrcroft Grange we have high expectations of all our pupils from entry into Reception through to exit from Year 6.

Here at Pyrcroft Grange we are extremely proud at how well our children have achieved in their mandatory SATs (Standardised assessment tests). The results demonstrate the hard work and commitment that the children and staff have undertaken in order to develop children as whole.

Reception Early Years

End of year outcomes for Reception Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS)


Year One phonics screening

The phonics screening check  is a short, simple assessment to make sure that all pupils have learned phonic decoding to an appropriate standard by the age of 6. All year 1 pupils in maintained schools, academies and free schools must complete the check.

The phonics check will help teachers identify the children who need extra help so they can receive the support they need to improve their reading skills. These children will then be able to retake the check in year 2.  The check comprises a list of 40 words and non-words which the child will read one-to-one with a teacher.

Data Yr 1

Key Stage One:

In Key Stage one, children are assessed in Reading, Writing, SPAG and Maths. The expected level for a child to achieve by the end of Key Stage One is 'Working at the expected standard'. When a child achieves 'Working at greater depth' they are said to be achieving more than expected for their age.

Data KS1

Key Stage Two:

In Year 6, children are assessed in Reading, Writing, Maths and SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar). The expected level for a child to achieve by the end of Key Stage Two is 'Working at the expected standard'. When a child achieves 'Working at greater depth' they are said to be achieving more than expected for their age.

The system of national curriculum levels is no longer used by the government to report end of key stage assessment. The previous 'expected progress' measure, based on pupils making at least two levels of progress between key stage 1 and key stage 2, is no longer produced. This measure has been replaced by a value-added measure. There is no 'target' for the amount of progress an individual pupil is expected to make. Any amount of progress a pupil makes contributes towards the school's progress score. 

The floor standard is the minimum standard for pupil attainment and/or progress that the government expects schools to meet. A school will be above the floor standard if:  -at least 65% of pupils meet the expected standard in English reading, English writing and mathematics; or  -the school achieves sufficient progress scores in all three subjects. At least -5 in reading, -5 in mathematics and -7 in English writing.  Pyrcroft Grange Primary School is significantly above the floor standard for both progress and attainment.
