Key Stage 2 information - for the academic year ended summer 2018

As yet, we are still not able to share our validated (or 'approved') SATS results for the academic year 2017/2018, but we are delighted to be able to share these provisional results:

  • In reading, 91% of the children met the expected standard (16% above the 75% national score)
  • In maths, 91% of the children met the expected standard (16% above the 75% national score)
  • In SPAG (spelling and grammar), 86% of the children met the expected standard (above the 78% national score)
  • In writing (which is teacher-assessed), 88% of the children met the expected standard (above the 78% national score) 

Congratulations to staff and children for such excellent results in all areas.  In all areas, our children’s results were significantly above national figures.

 

We will update this page with our validated results later in the autumn term, as soon as they are made available.  In the meantime, should you have any questions about these results, please speak to a member of the Leadership Team. 

Key Stage 2 information – for the academic year ended summer 2017

In November 2016, the Sunday Times published a listing of the top 2,000 primary schools in Britain, based on results over the previous five years.  As an Ofsted Outstanding school (our October 2014 report is available as a download on this page), with a record of excellent results for our children, Selwyn Primary School was placed in position 242 - i.e. within the top 1.5% of all primary schools in Britain.

However, despite the usual dedication and expertise of our staff team at school, our Key Stage 2 results for the year ended summer 2017 were not to the usual standards we have achieved consistently over time. School leaders, including our Trustees and Governors are working to rectify this dip in results to ensure that this will not happen in 2017/2018, and adaptations to our practice can be evidenced in school improvement planning.  Further detail is provided below; our excellent results for the year ended summer 2016 are also available on this page.   

Please note that guidance for parents regarding both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 results this academic year are available as documents to download on this page, to help parents interpret this information.  Should you wish to discuss these results further, please contact the School Office, where staff will be happy to help.
