What the Government says:

In 2016, a school will be above the floor standard (this is the national standard, it is the minimum standard for pupil attainment and/or the progress that the government expects schools to meet) if

  • At least 65% of pupils meet the expected standards in English reading, English writing and mathematics; or
  • The school achieves sufficient progress scores in all three subjects
  • At least -5 in English Reading, -5 in mathematics and -7 in English writing.

To be above the floor, the school needs to meet either the attainment or all of the progress element.

What Lord Deramore’s says:

  • We are so proud of our children and the amazing progress they have made. The floor standard is 65% but the national picture is 53%. We are above this at 62%.
  • We know that in 2016 the impact of accurate spelling was significant in the achievement of the expected standard in writing. This can present a challenge for pupils who have dyslexia.
  • We are delighted to be above the floor in all three progress measures.

This is the first set of Key Stage 1 data where the cohort has achieved above the national data set in all areas at the higher attaining level.

In Reading we are in the top five schools in York for attainment at greater depth, in writing we are the highest attaining school at greater depth and in Mathematics we are 13th.

We know that our focus on reading comprehension helped pupils focus on retrieval, word meaning and inference supporting both language development as well as the vocabulary for writing.

Our reading progress shows that we are in the top five schools in York. We consider that our focus on developing understanding in reading through a love of literature has supported this amazing outcome.
As we move into the new school in 2017 we aim to extend and develop our range of fiction.
Our outcomes in writing are as we predicted, we know that Talk for Writing has had an impact on the quality of writing. We will continue to focus on intervention and support for pupils who have dyslexia.Our maths progress indicates that we are in the top eight schools in York. A strong focus on building resilience through problem solving alongside practical maths activities has supported the achievement of this cohort.
Mathletics, an e-learning platform is now part of maths development at home and school.

Early Years Foundation Stage

The school has made significant progress over the past two years in average point score.  The 2015 cohort contained 3 children with significant needs which affected the overall percentage achieving GLD.  Taking these children out of the data, the percentage achieving GLD would have been 74%.  Despite this, achievement has continued to be above National averages and projections suggest this will continue in 2017.
