As we are a special school for children with learning difficulties our pupils are unable to access the Key Stage 2 tests. Therefore we are unable to publish data relating to Key Stage 2 tests. However we accurately measure the progress of all pupils from their beginning of Key Stage baseline so we can report on progress made.

We recognise that Progression Guidance is no longer used to benchmark special school data. However, in the absence of an alternative national data set we are continuing to use this as a comparative indicator so we can compare data over time. As a Teaching School we have set up an assessment network ‘North West Specialist Assessment Network’ (NWSAG) to develop a coherent response to Assessment Without levels in the Special sector.

The National data sets from Progression Guidance are used to benchmark our pupils’ progress. These data sets indicate lower, median and upper quartile progress. Expected progress is median quartile progress (ie progress made by 50% of pupils nationally with same staring point over KS2) where progress exceeds this expectation we record this as exceeding expected progress.

End of Key Stage 2 Data 2018

1 out of the 10 pupils (10%) made expected progress in English and Maths. This pupil is educated in our ISC

English Expected progress or above = 90% (9 out of 10 pupils)
Mathematics Expected progress or above = 100% (10 out of 10 pupils)

8 out of 10 pupils (80%) exceeded expected progress in English.
9 out of 10 pupils (90%) exceeded expected progress in Mathematics.

3 out of 10 pupils (30%) made exceptional progress in English achieving an aspirational target of one step above their expected target.
4 out of 10 pupils (40%) made exceptional progress in mathematics achieving an aspirational target of one step above their expected target.

Analysis of progress for specific groups

Most able pupils:
1 pupil was baselined mid key stage and deemed to have started KS2 on S11 for English she did not make a challenging target. 2 pupils started on S9 and both exceeded expected progress.
1 pupil was baselined mid key stage and deemed to have started KS2 on S11 for English she exceeded expected progress in Mathematics. 3 pupils started on S10 and all exceeded their targets with one making exceptional progress.

Most dependent pupils:
1 pupil started KS2 on S3 she made exceptional progress in English and Mathematics.

Black, Minority, Ethnic (BME):
4 pupils at the end of KS2 are recorded as BME heritage. 1 pupil (25%) made expected progress in English and Maths (ISC pupil). 3 exceeded expected progress in English and Mathematics and 1 made exceptional progress.

Child Looked After (CLA):
2 pupils at the end of KS2 are recorded as CLA. Both exceeded expected progress in mathematics. 1 exceeded expected progress in English and the other did not quite achieve a challenging target.

Gender:
5 males and 4 females are at end of KS2. All pupils exceeded expected progress in Mathematics and the difference between girls and boys making exceptional progress is not statistically significant.50% of boys also exceeded expected progress.
In English 1 female did not make a challenging target. However, there are no significant gender differences.

Pupil Premium:
4 pupils were entitled to the Pupil Premium Grant
75% (3 out of 4) Pupil Premium entitled pupils made expected progress in English and 100% in mathematics.
75% of Pupil Premium entitled pupils exceeded expected progress in English and 100% in mathematics.
50% (2 out of 4) Pupil Premium entitled pupils made exceptional progress in English and in mathematics.

Conduct Support Plans (CSPs):
3 pupils are currently on CSPs
100% (3 pupils) exceeded expected progress in mathematics and English
67% (2 out of 3) made exceptional progress in mathematics and English
