Each year, all schools are required to complete statutory assessments across different year groups.
The assessments are:
The below show the outcomes of these assessments over the past three years. Please note that in 2021 the figures shown are based on teacher assessment only (and not external assessment) due to the cancellation of statutory assessments in this year due to COVID.
The table below shows the percentage of the cohort that reached the expected academic standard (or beyond) by the end of key stage two. There are no national averages for comparison in 2021 as there was not a national assessment programme in this year.
This table shows the percentage of the cohort that reached the expected academic standard (or exceeded it) at the end of Key Stage One. There are no national averages for comparison in 2021 as there was not a national assessment programme in this year.
The multiplication tables check became a statutory assessment in 2022. Below are the percentage of children who achieved 100% correct answers in the check and those that achieved 80%+ correct answers.
Year 1 are screened to check their knowledge of the written English code, ie. Their knowledge of phonics. Children were required to read 32 (or more) out of 40 words, including pseudo words, correctly to pass the screening.

The statutory EYFS (early years foundation stage) framework requires the EYFS profile assessment to be carried out in the final term of the year in which a child reaches the age of 5, and no later than 30th June in that term.
The EYFS profile is intended to provide reliable, valid and accurate assessment of each child’s development at the end of the EYFS. It Is made up of an assessment of the child’s outcomes in relation to the 17 early learning goal (ELG) descriptors. Children are defined as having reached a good level of development (GLD) at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level for the ELGs in the prime areas of learning and the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.
The following are the figures for the proportion of children reaching GLD in 2023.
