School Results and Performance Tables

Gainsborough Data: 2 YEAR TREND: 2018 & 2019

Link to DFE Performance tables

These tables show the outcomes and results for end of key-stages and phonic screening for Gainsborough compared to the National outcomes and results for academic year 2018 and 19.

End of Reception

 

We are consistently above National figures for children working at and above the expected standard. This shows outstanding progress from our children’s starting points. Our school has been asked to be a feature school in an early years development programme called ‘From Good to Excellent’ and we host ‘New to EYFS’ sessions in our setting for new teachers.

*Good level of development is where children reach the expected standard (early learning goals) within Prime learning areas (communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development) as well as literacy and mathematics. 
Staff have worked hard all year to make a difference for the children. We continue to put characteristics of effective learning at the forefront of our thinking; and are working with other schools to ensure that teacher knowledge of how to develop this is robust. We also have a continuous program of development around communication and language which ensures firm foundations for our children to build their literacy and mathematical skills upon. As we focus on greater depth of learning across the school, there is much we can utilise from these pieces of work in other year groups.

At Gainsborough we follow the RWI systematic synthetic phonics programme to teach our pupils to read. From Reception to Year 2, our children are grouped according to their phonic knowledge for a daily reading session with phonics providing the structure for early reading development. We strive for our pupils to fully complete the RWI phonics programme as quickly as possible. The sooner they learn to read, the sooner they will be able to choose books to read at their own interest and comprehension level and become lifelong readers. 

The progress of our pupils’ reading is carefully tracked with targeted teaching. This enables us to ensure our PSC scores remain above national levels.

Our phonics re-take data for year 2 remains close to national levels. We effectively target the reading needs of children working below year group expectations. We plan 1:1 inventions to support  phonic knowledge and also address wider reading skills to ensure our pupils develop a love of story and reading.

A progress score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. Higher than 0 means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

We are pleased to report the progress our pupils have achieved and the percentages at or above the nationally expected levels. We are extremely proud of the hard work and fantastic achievement of our pupils, and of course this would not have been possible without the support and commitment of our staff, parents and carers.

We have always had a good record of achievement and our results have consistently been above the national average. The latest set of results for KS2  were a dip and we are disappointed by them. As a school we are committed to ensuring our children achieve excellent outcomes and have excellent experiences. A plan has been in place to ensure improvements and our future results continue to be above both the Newham and national average. Ofsted's recent visits have highlighted the school ethos of  challenging yourself everyday, the excellent work that enables pupils to leave with the skills that give them the best chance to flourish and our ambitions for our pupils.

Most of our reportable data shows the good and better levels of attainment and progress achieved by our pupils; we are either broadly in line with, or above National levels.
