Key Stage 2 Results 2019
Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS)
Reading, writing and mathematics combined
Average Scaled Score in Reading
Average Scaled Score in Mathematics
Average Scaled Score in GPS
To achieve the expected standard children needed to reach a scaled score of 100 in the reading, mathematics and GPS tests and a scaled score of 110+ to achieve the greater depth standard.
The reading, writing and mathematics combined measure consisted of children achieving the 100+ scaled score in mathematics and reading and being teacher assessed at the expected standard for writing.
Individual pupil progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score was 0. A school progress score for individual subjects is presented as positive and negative numbers either side of 0. A score of 0 means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between key stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

School Complaints Procedure
SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) Information
Our SEND Coordinator is Mrs A. Stewart-Milne.
She can be contacted on 0161 338 4290 or through the school office.
Complaints regarding SEND
Parents and carers of children with special educational needs (SEND) are welcomed into school to discuss any aspect of their child’s provision.
If parents and carers are not satisfied, or are unsure about any aspect of their child’s provision, they should make an appointment with the class teacher, Headteacher or SENCO to discuss this.
If parents and carers are dissatisfied with the outcome of any meetings held they should follow the formal Compaints Procedure (see above).
The Code of Practice outlines additional measures that the Local Authority must set up for preventing and resolving any disagreements. These can be explained if they are required.
We aim to provide all our pupils with the opportunity to succeed, and to reach the highest level of personal achievement.
To do this, we will:
Use contextual data to improve the ways in which we provide support to individuals and groups of pupils;
Monitor achievement data by ethnicity, gender and disability and action any gaps;
Take account of the achievement of all pupils when planning for future learning and setting challenging targets;
Ensure equality of access for all pupils and prepare them for life in a diverse society;
Use materials that reflect the diversity of the school, population and local community in terms of race, gender and disability, without stereotyping;
Promote attitudes and values that will challenge racist and other discriminatory behaviour or prejudice;
Provide opportunities for pupils to appreciate their own culture and celebrate the diversity of other cultures;
Seek to involve all parents in supporting their child’s education;
Encourage classroom and staffroom discussion of equality issues which reflect on social stereotypes, expectations and the impact on learning;
Include teaching and classroom-based approaches appropriate for the whole school population, which are inclusive and reflective of our pupils.
