Comparison of School Performance


Data 2019-2020

Due to the government restrictions and guidelines at the end of academic year 2019/2020, there is no data to report for the children. However, Brentnall remains very proud of the hard work the children have put in over the school year and the resilience they have shown with their both their wellbeing and learning. We look forward to continuing with the excellent progress the children have made and supporting the children with their wellbeing and achievements.


School Data Summary

Early Years Data

Children at the end of Reception class have accessed the Early Years curriculum and are assessed in 17 areas of learning. Children who achieve the expected level in the first 12 of these areas of learning are considered to have made a Good Level of Development (GLD).

Key Stage 1 data

Year 1 Phonics Screening

At the end of year 1 children are assessed in their understanding of Phonics. This is called the Phonics Screening. The phonics screen assesses children ability to decode and blend sounds in words. The screening tool is made up of 20 real words and 20 nonsense words.

Children have to achieve a certain number of marks (out of 40) to be considered as meeting the threshold.

Reading 55% 75%
Writing 39% 69%
Mathematics 55% 76%

Key Stage 2 data

At the end of Key Stage 2 children are assessed against the Key Stage 2 Curriculum they have been taught in Years 3-6. Children take tests in Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) and Mathematics. Their writing is assessed based on teacher assessments from a range of pieces of writing. Historically, up until 2015 children were assessed in levels.

The previous National Curriculum levels have been removed and in their place is a national ‘expected standard’ for Year 6 children to meet.  This standard is met by achieving at least 100 on a scaled score in reading; spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG); and mathematics in the end of key stage tests.

Since the new curriculum is only in its second academic year, these standards have been additionally challenging for the first cohort of pupils to be assessed under the new system and this is reflected in the results nationally.

The skills of literacy and numeracy are essential however, we also remain determined not to neglect those activities that give our school its distinct international and allow our children to develop into respectful, successful leaners who can play a positive part in society as they grow older.
