  • Our pupils make good progress and attainment is very high. Children reach standards that are above the national average.

    Ofsted’s School Data Dashboard shows the most recent Ofsted summaries of our end of Key Stage 1 and end of Key Stage 2 data.

    High expectations and great enthusiasm for learning is reflected in our extremely high results. Department for Education Performance Tables provide detailed analysis of Northowram’s performance against a variety of measures.

    Attainment

    Level 4 or higher

    One measure which the Department for Education uses is the percentage of pupils attaining Level 4 (the broad, nationally-expected level for 11 year olds) or more by the end of Year 6 in Reading, Writing and Maths (ie all three).

    In 2015, 98% of our pupils attained Level 4 (or higher) in all three subjects, 19 percentage points higher than nationally (79%).

    It’s also useful to think about the breakdown between the core subjects of Reading, Writing and Maths (also included is the assessment of Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling). Proportions attaining Level 4 or higher are:

    • Reading: Level 4+ 98% (national: 89%)
    • Writing: Level 4+ 98% (national: 85%)
    • Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: Level 4+ 86.4% (national: 76%)
    • Maths: Level 4+ 100% (national: 86%)
  • In our school

    In our school We live positively and work happily together to achieve the highest levels of academic success as well as preparing our children to become responsible citizens.

  • Level 5 or higher

    Level 5 is a higher level (broadly speaking, most 14 year olds are expected to be working at around Level 5 or Level 6). At Northowram Primary, we pride ourselves on making sure higher attaining pupils are provided with lots of challenge: all the data here can be regarded as above national figures.

    47% of our pupils attained Level 5 (or higher) in all three subjects, 23 percentage points higher than nationally (24%).

    • Reading: Level 5+ 81% (national: 49%)
    • Writing: Level 5+ 72% (national: 33%)
    • Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: Level 5+ 57% (national: 52%)
    • Maths: Level 5+ 59% (national: 42%)

    Progress

    Many people would argue that progress is the most important measure as it truly reflects the quality of teaching and learning, regardless of pupils’ starting points. Progress is typically measured from Year 2 (the end of Key Stage 1) to Year 6 (the end of Key Stage 2).

    At Northowram Primary, here are the percentages, compared with nationally, of pupils made at least the minimum expected progress of two levels in 2015:

    • Reading: 97% (national: 91%)
    • Writing: 98% (national: 93%)
    • Maths: 93% (national: 89%)
