Assessment Outcomes

PLEASE NOTE, FOLLOWING THE PANDEMIC, DUE TO THE GOVERNMENT CANCELLATION OF ALL EXTERNAL ASSESSMENTS DUE IN THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2019/20 AND AGAIN IN 2020/21, WE ARE UNABLE TO PRESENT THE RELEVANT DATA. WE HAVE THEREFORE RETAINED THE LAST YEAR AVAILABLE’S DATA HERE AS A GUIDE.

Our Results From Government Assessments IN 2018/19 Academic Year

Please find below three documents in succession for each year group’s key assessments in Summer 2019, containing our results for those assessments that all schools with pupils aged 4-7 must undertake. Please note, each cohort has children with different needs and abilities and on average one child in each year group is equivalent to 1.1.% (our usual cohort in each year is 90 children).

Reception children must have an assessment across seventeen ‘Early Learning Goals’ being assessed at either ‘Entering’, ‘Expected’ or ‘Exceeding’ by the end of the academic year.

Attendance: Also we are pleased to highlight that our attendance rate is above national average at 96.8% of all possible attendances for the last full (non-Covid affected) academic year September 2018 – July 2019, despite outbreaks of chicken pox in the Winter and again in the Summer which caused two (untypical for Thurnham) absence peaks.

Whilst in the 2020/21 academic year attendance was affected by children isolating and the lockdown, taking isolation absences out, for the full academic year attendance was 98.2%. For the period from school reopening (after lockdown) on 8th March to end of term on 20th July the attendance figure was 97.9%.
