School Performance 2016

Rackheath KS2 data 2016

The school has performed consistently above national levels for the last 3 years.

In summary the table below shows that our results last year were very pleasing. With all our results above and often well above the comparative national figures in terms of those children reaching the expected standard or above. For example our result for children reaching the expected standard in all 3 of reading, writing and maths was 74% which was 21% above the national figure.

In 2016 tests were reported as a scaled score. This scale went from 80 to 120. Children were deemed to have reached the expected standard if their scaled score was 100 or above. To find an average points score the scores of all children at Rackheath were added together and then an average was found.  As you can see our average points scores (APS) were higher than the national average in reading and GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) and the same as the national score in maths.

Progress Data Key Stage 1 to 2

Another way a school’s performance is measured is through the progress the children make between being assessed in Year 2 and then Year 6. A child making average progress from their starting point at the end of Key Stage 1 would have a progress score of 0. Children making less than average would have a – progress score and those making above average progress would have a + progress score.

As you can see we have positive progress scores in all measures. In the table below you can see that overall our children made above average progress in reading, writing and maths as did our disadvantaged children who qualify for pupil premium (PP). As you can see our results compare favourably to the national average which would be 0 for all subjects as well as Norfolk averages.

Progress Indicator School Progress Score Average Norfolk Progress Score Points Difference
Reading 4.2 -0.5 +4.7
Writing 2.1 0.6 +1.5
Maths 1.2 -1.6 +2.8
Reading PP 4.6 -1.4 +6
Writing PP 0.3 0 +0.3
Maths PP 6 -1.6 +7.6
