The percentage of pupils at national expectations starting in the Academy has been low as shown by our entry test results. For example, only 52% of Year 5 pupils starting in 2017 were at national expectation for Maths. However, as pupils move through the years at the Academy, a greater percentage of pupils are at expected standard.
Our SATS 2018 results saw an improvement in all tests and expected standard.
Please note progress score measures are from KS1 results. As a middle school, we only receive pupils in upper KS2, i.e Years 5 & 6. Therefore, the progress measure may not truly reflect the progress pupils have made in the Academy during upper KS2.

*Writing is teacher assessed and not test based. Teacher assessment is based on a broad range of evidence from across the curriculum and knowledge of how a pupil has performed over time and in a variety of contexts. It is carried out as part of teaching and learning.The Writing criteria in 2017 changed from a previously understood 'best fit' to 'must meet all' and hence the drop in results. The Academy has prioritised Writing across the curriculum for this academic year to drive up standards.
