We are already half-way through the third term and the new topic work is proving very interesting and exciting. This week pupils have been wrapped up as mummies, made electrical circuits to fix a time-machine and made music to replicate rainforest animals; additionally Hedgehog class have begun to develop the wild-life area where the tall trees have been removed.

This week we welcome two student teachers to Sherborne on Thursday, who will be with us for the coming weeks. We are pleased to support the development of new teachers.

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). 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 2017:

Scaled Scores

From 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 2017.

Progress

Progress is 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 2017. 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:
