Latest Published SATs Results

In our school we believe that a happy child who is a child who will learn. This comes about through teamwork between home and school and at Instow we work tirelessly to offer a wide range of indoor and outdoor learning experiences to build our children's self confidence and critical thinking skills, feeding into their progression.

 

Standardised Assessment Tests (SATs) are the Department for Education's system to measure children's progress and our latest data has now been published for anyone to look at and to compare with other schools of a similar community background.

Please open the documents below for our latest 2016 KS2 results, as well as trends over time.

In 2015 % of pupils who achieved Level 4 and above in combined Reading, Writing and Maths was  91% for our school, compared with all schools in Devon - 82% and 80% for all schools in England.

 

Instow Community Primary R/W/M       91%
Devon Schools R/W/M       82%
all schools in England R/W/M       80%

 

In the same year % of pupils who achieved Level 5 in Reading, Writing and Maths was a wonderful 63%! We are very proud of our pupils and their efforts. Importantly we have been able to close any gaps between pupil premium funded children and all other pupils at KS2, enabling them to begin secondary schools with a greater level of confidence and academic achievement.

 

Further information, from Ofsted's Inspection Dashboard at the end of 2015:

  • KS2 value added in all subjects was broadly average or above for disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs.
  • From at least 5 out of every 6  starting points, the proportion of disadvantaged KS2 pupils making and exceeding expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics was similar to that of pupils nationally.
  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils had an average point score equal to or above the national score  for other pupils in reading and mathematics.
  • The proportion of disadvantaged KS2 pupils that attained at least Level 4 was equal to or above the national figure for other pupils in reading and mathematics.
  • The proportion of disadvantaged KS2 pupils that attained at least Level 5 was equal to or above the national figure for other pupils in reading.
  • The proportion of Year 1 pupils who met the expected standard in phonics was above the national figure.
  • the proportion of children whom achieved a Good Level of Development in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile was above the national figure.
  • Attendance was above average.
  • Persistent absence was below average.

 

 

We are pleased to also share with you the national benchmarking data, where you can compare our school, with other similar schools nationally. Follow the link below to read this data for yourself.

 

For two years running, we are currently rated as 34 / 125 top outstanding and good similar schools nationally. 

 

As there is no statistically better performing schools in this group within a 75 mile radius of our school, an additional school has been highlighted – the method for selecting a school from outside of this group is explained in the similar schools guidance:

Our teaching team at Instow analyse children's progression and look to place groups of children on interventions programmes to help them make the right progress.

 

At Governor's meetings we analyse progression data on a termly basis, ensuring that our pupils are making the best progress possible, especially during this year of statutory changes from the DfE.  

 

We cannot make this happen without family support and we rely on our pupil's being ready to learn during the school day.

 

If you have any questions, please speak to any of the teaching staff.
