Our Assessment Results

In-School Assessment 

The National Expected Standard for each year group has been set by the Government. It has been widely reported that this is higher than the standard that was expected under the old National Curriculum.  We will be working hard to close any gaps and help the pupils to reach the National Expected Standard by the end of each academic year.

Year 1
At Scotts Park Primary School, great emphasis is placed on phonics and reading. Children in Reception, Years 1, and 2 are taught a high quality phonics session every day in addition to carefully planned guided reading sessions. We teach the Letters and Sounds curriculum through the use of Jolly Phonics and LCP Planning.

The new, statutory phonics screening check for all Year 1 pupils took place for the first time in June 2012. The phonics screening check is an assessment of phonic decoding. It consists of a list of 40 words, half real words and half non-words, which Year 1 children read to a teacher. The check is designed to confirm whether individual pupils have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard and have grasped the essential skills that underpin good reading.

In 2017, 87% of Year 1 children at Scotts Park Primary School reached the expected level in the phonics screening test. 80% of the children in Year 2 who retook the phonics screening test achieved the expected level.
