School Results including EYFS, Key Stage 1 & Key Stage 2 Results
Please click here Updated Information for Parents on School Data September 2018 for information about our school results over the last three years (2016, 2017 and 2018). As we have small year groups that can make data hard to understand (e.g. comparing the performance of a year group of 5 children to the national ‘average’ when each child in our school will be worth 20%) we are committed to transparency and giving parents all the information you would like about our school results and performance – we feel that giving you the last three years’ worth of data gives a better picture of the school rather than individual cohorts. This is also an area which the Governing Body monitor closely and which Ofsted also look at but please ask if we can provide any additional details.
School Performance Tables
School Performance Tables are published by the Secretary of State on the Department for Education’s website, which can be found here. They also give information about progress scores. However as the 2017 cohort of 5 children was too small for statistical comparison purposes they are not available for that year.
Schools are also required to report on their swimming results. All children swim for a term every year in KS2 (four years of swimming provision) and in 2017/18 69% (9 out of our 13) Year 6 children could swim 25 metres confidently.

Safeguarding permeates every aspect of our School life and many of our school policies make reference to safeguarding and the Keeping Children Safe in Education documents and principles which we follow in all our practice.
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
- protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
- preventing harm to children’s health or development
- ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
- taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.
Teaching children to be safe online is a key priority for us and e-safety is part of our Computing curriculum, as well as permeates our use of IT in all areas. In January 2018 Green and Yellow Class children took part in an e-safety questionnaire so that we could better engage with their issues online. You can see a copy of it by clicking here Pupil e-safety questionnaire and their answers by clicking here E-Safety Answers January 2018 . In May 2018 we held an e-safety information evening for parents and the handouts and slides are available here Parenting-in-the-digital-world-presentation for parents May 2018 Film Clips used in E-Safety training May 2018

PE and Sports Premium Funding
In 2016-17 we received £8,350 and click here Sports Premium Spending 2016-17 to find out how we have spent that money to improve pupil’s sport participation and attainment and how we make sure the impact is sustainable.
In 2017-18 and 2018-19 we are focusing on increasing levels of fitness and participation in sport as a Key Priority on our School Development plan and so School Leaders are closely monitoring the current spend and its impact, in this area. We have been collecting assessment data on children’s fitness and have some really interesting data on the impact of the Daily Mile, in particular. This is an area which Governors have looked at during Governor Link Weeks. You can find information about the spend we received in 2017-18 and how it was used here (including current plans): Sports Premium Overview 2017-18 and 2018-19 plans
