Ofsted and Performance Data

At the end of the Reception Year, children are assessed (by their teachers, not tests) across the full range of the curriculum. If they have made the expected the progress and are working at the level expected then they have achieved a ‘good level of development’.

The table below shows that the children at BCS achieved particularly well compared to Bolton and National statistics. It also shows that we have made significant improvements over the last three years.

 

END OF RECEPTION - CHILDREN ACHIEVING 'GOOD LEVEL OF DEVELOPMENT'

 

  SCHOOL BOLTON NATIONAL
2016 77% 65% 69%
2017 80% 66% 71%
2018 83% 68% 72%

 

At the end of Year 1, children undertake a quick Phonics test. This is designed to check the child’s ability to decode words using their phonics skills. It is completed one-to-one with a teacher and takes approximately 10 minutes. Again, as a school, our achievements are above Bolton and National data and show an improvement over the last two years.

 

PHONICS SCREENING TEST

 

  SCHOOL BOLTON NATIONAL
2016 83% 80% 81%
2017 83% 81% 81%
2018 93% 82% 83%

 

 

At the end of Year 2 children are assessed by the teachers and also by a set of tests (SATs) to check if they are working at the level expected for their age or are working at the higher level of ‘greater depth’. The data is presented in two ways. In this cohort we had two children from Dreams registered in Year 2. Dreams results are included in our official results that are used in league tables. However, we have also presented the data without these children included so that a more accurate comparison can be drawn to other local schools that do not have a specialist provision for children with special needs.

 

YEAR 2 RESULTS (including Dreams data)

 

  READING WRITING MATHS SCIENCE COMBINED
EXPECTED 75% 78% 81% 78% 75%
GREATER DEPTH 22% 22% 16% N/A 13%

 

YEAR 2 RESULTS (without Dreams data)

 

  READING WRITING MATHS SCIENCE COMBINED
EXPECTED 80% 80% 83% 83% 80%
GREATER DEPTH 23% 23% 17% N/A 13%

 

NATIONAL DATA (FOR COMPARISON)

 

  READING WRITING MATHS SCIENCE COMBINED
EXPECTED 75% 70% 76% 83% 65%
GREATER DEPTH 26% 16% 22% N/A 12%
