Data for 19-20 was not collected nationally due to the lockdown situation, where schools remained open for key worker children who could not be cared for at home, then Years 1, 6 and Reception returned for a few short weeks before the summer holidays as part of the national plan.
KS2 SATS were not completed, despite an incredibly successful preparation and mock SATS in the Spring term just before Covid took hold. We are very proud of our Year 6s and the efforts they applied to reach the levels they did, and we wish them every success.
Likewise KS1 SATS were not completed, nor were the Phonic Screening or the collection of data from the EYFS.
Internally we collect data for every subject, and the children's levels were reported using our internal school system up until early March 2020. However, it would be inaccurate and unrealistic to report on those levels.
Instead we simply note that Phonic Screening predictions saw a rise in results through investment in new reading books and interventions.
The children have been assessed in early September to plan a catch up programme in addition to the usual interventions which will be closely monitored to ensure good progress despite the lost months of schooling.
Parents and carers have done an amazing job of home schooling and working simultaneously and for that we are very grateful.
