Performance

Coronavirus Update
We are hugely disappointed that we have been unable to take part in the national end of key stage tests for the past two years. Our results had improved dramatically during the previous four years. We are confident that for the academic years 2019 – 2020 and 2020 – 2021 the rising trend of attainment would have continued.

The table below indicates our predicted end of year results for the academic year 2019 – 2020. We believe these results would have placed us as one of the highest achieving primary schools in the borough. We are optimistic that this will become a reality for the academic year 2021 – 2022.

We were disappointed that our Reading attainment was slightly below the national average. As a result, Reading is one of our key priority areas for development for this current academic year.

Progress at the end of Key Stage 2 was very good this year:

  • Reading progress was 1.1 which is nationally average
  • Maths was 1.9 which is nationally above average
  • Writing was 4.8 which is nationally well above average and within the top 10% of all schools. This was also the highest Writing progress score in Merton.
