Attainment and Progress
Currently, pupils are assessed across the country at three times during their time in KS1 and KS2. In Year 1, all pupils take the Phonics Screening Check which is designed to see how successful they have been at learning the key sounds upon which reading is built.
At the end of KS1, all pupils take Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) in Reading and Maths. These give an indication of how children are getting on with their learning compared to other children nationally. Most pupils will be working at age-related expectation (EXS) which means within the average band for their age. Some pupils will be working higher than this level (GDS) and some below. Pupils are also assessed by their teacher against national criteria in Writing.
In Year 6, pupils take SATs in Reading and Maths along with a test of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. Again, most pupils will be working at ARE with some above and some below. Teachers assess the pupils in writing against strict national criteria.
The documents below show the outcomes for Hucknall National C of E Primary School against a range of national measures. At the end of the academic years 2019 - 20 and 2020 - 21, national assessments (such as the end of KS1 and KS2 SATs) were suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic and, as a result, some of the figures given are teacher assessments.
