It was lovely to see so many parents and pupils at our Cheese and Wine Evening. We hope you enjoyed looking back over the year and hearing about our vision for the future.  How nice it was, to celebrate the pupils’ achievements and recognise the hard work and support of our school community.

On Friday the whole school visited the Air Tattoo. It was a spectacular air-show and a day packed with fun and special opportunities to climb inside planes and meet pilots; thanks to all our parent helpers, in particular Mrs Bunny who made our VIP visits possible. To top off a wonderful day, Jasmine and Joseph came back from the STEM challenge victorious – Air Tattoo STEM challenge presentation winners 2017!

School Results

Key Stage 2 Results

In their last year at Primary School, pupils undertake national assessments in reading, writing, mathematics and English Grammar and Spelling (EGS). Until July 2015, children were awarded a level depending on their test score. From July 2016, children are given a standardised score which compares their test results to the results of all other children nationally.

Below you will find the Key Stage 2 results for 2015 and 2016:

Scaled Scores

In 2016 children were awarded a scaled score. This figure was arrived at by comparing the children’s results with the most common test score nationally. A scaled score of 100 was deemed to be the national mean score. A score of below 100 meant that the school attained less well than the national average and a score of above 100 meant that the school attained higher than the national average.

Below you will find the scaled scores for 2016.

2016 Reading EGS Mathematics
Scaled Score 103 105 102

Progress

In 2016 progress was measured by comparing children’s results with those who had attained similarly at the end of Key Stage 1.

Below you will find the progress results for 2016. A progress score of 0 means that children made the same progress as the national average. A positive score means that children made more progress than the national average and a negative score means that children made less progress than the national average:

2016 Reading  Writing Mathematics
Sherborne

Progress Score

-0.71 -0.97 -0.23
Gloucestershire

Progress Score

 0.6 -1.2 -0.4

 

The school’s progress scores, although negative, are inline with the national average in all subjects. This is because our school has small year groups which means that unusual individual scores (positive and negative) greatly affect the overall progress result.
