School Academic Performance

We are incredibly proud of the academic attainment and progress of all our children here at Dalestorth.  A lot of hard work by all members of the school community ensures that children at Dalestorth do the best that they can and achieve well not only in the National Assessment points of their education, but every day, week, month and year.

Here at Dalestorth we are clear about what the children need to learn, we plan carefully ensuring learning is wrapped up in exciting, engaging lessons with a relevant context.  We ensure there is a good balance between acquiring knowledge and facts and skills that are transferable to other life situations.  Finding the correct pitch, level of difficulty that has just the right amount of challenge, careful scaffolding and modelling in lessons is very important to all of us to ensure all our groups of learners make progress.  We make clear to the children how they are doing, what they can do well, what they need to do next and how to get there!

A strength of the school is how well we all know all the children and everyone is kept a very close eye on.  This ensures gaps are less likely to appear in either groups of children or individuals.  Anyone that is in danger of slipping behind is picked up incredibly quickly and our success rate of 'catch-up' and interventions is excellent.

Our children rise to the challenge of high expectations.  They are enthusiastic to learning, take a pride in their work and want to do their best.

 

 

 

Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) - Year 4 Summer 2022

  • 10 out of 45 children (22%) achieved 25/25
  • 28 out of 45 children (62%) scored 20 or more.
  • 12 children scored less than 60% and, therefore, these children should have a times tables intervention in year 5 in order to close the gap.

These results show an improvement from 2021 with 5% more children achieving 25/25 and        12% more scoring 20 or more.

Progress

In addition to having to have Attainment in line/better than National, schools are also measured and held accountable for what progress children make as they pass through school from Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2.

The new measures for progress means that if a school holds a progress score of 0, then that is in line with National.  If a school has any negative - progress scores it means the children have not performed as well as they could have done and not made sufficient or expected progress.  If a school has positive + progress scores it means that the children have made more than sufficient or expected progress.  You can see our progress scores below. Our children made progress in line with children nationally from the same starting points.  

 

Reading = +0.2

Writing = +1.1

Maths = -0.38

 

Compare Schools

Every year the Department for Education publishes information on the achievement and attainment of pupils in all schools.  These tables provide a guide to how well a school is doing.  They list National Curriculum test results for each school in England and show how they compare with other schools.

As well as our own schools performance results you are able to access information on all schools throughout England so that you are able to see how each individual school compares with others, locally, county and nationally and against the average across the country.
