Pupil achievement May 2017
In EYFS 69% of children achieved a GLD (good level of development). This is in line with Dorset but below National (71%)
Overall children achieved very well in the Year 6 assessments. All results are well above the National and the Dorset LA results. Overall 76% of pupils met the expected standard in all three subjects combined, well above the government floor target of 65% and significantly higher than the Dorset figure of 57% and the national figure of 61%. In writing, which was teacher-assessed, 10% of pupils were working at greater depth in the school below the national result of 23%. The school believe that they were rigorous when assessing children’s writing, making sure they had evidence that children were fully secure in all aspects of writing before assessing them as exceeding age related expectations. DfE figures show all groups of pupils made good progress, particularly in reading (+1.4) and maths (+2.0) where progress was above the national average. Maths and GPS are significantly above national and Reading is also well above the national average. All progress measures are well above government floor targets.

Share your views through Parent View
Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.
When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.
Please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.
Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
