Garfield Achievement Headlines 2021-22 (Updated 7th November 2022)

Here are our results for the end of foundation stage (reception); year 1 Phonics Screening Check and year 2 retakes; and the end of key stage 1 SATs in year 2 and the end of key stage 2 SATs in year 6.

Attainment / Progress in Reception

  • Attainment in reception is below national averages (2019) in reading, writing and maths.
  • Progress in reception was good compared to the pupils’ starting points in September 2021.
  • Non-transient pupils that completed nursery at Garfield scored higher, close to or about national averages for 2019.

 

Phonics Results (Year 1)

  • 47% passed the test. This is below the national figure of 75% for 2022.
  • 47% of year 2 children retaking after failing the test in December 2021  passed – overall, 75% of Garfield year 2 pupils passed phonics by the end of year 2 – this is below the national figure of 87%

 

End of KS1 attainment (Year 2)

  • Attainment in 2020 was estimated using data from March 2020 (start of COVID lockdown) – these figures are not included in the table below.
  • Attainment in 2021 was assessed using internal assessment materials.
  • Figures for 2022 are higher than national averages (2022) in reading, writing and maths.
  • High pupil mobility affected attainment. The figures for non-transient pupils (children present at GPS throughout reception and years 1 and 2) shows higher attainment for this group and figures well above national averages for 2022.

Year 4 Multiplication Check

  • The Year 4 Multiplication Check is 25x table questions, completed online – children have 6 seconds to answer each question.
  • Overall 90% of pupils scored 20+ and 52% scored 100% (25/25)
  • The average score for Garfield was 23.5 – this is an increase from 2021 (20) and well above the national average mean score of 18.4 from 2019.

End of KS2 attainment (Year 6) (Provisional figures)

  • Attainment in 2020 was estimated using data from March 2020 (start of COVID lockdown) – these figures are not included in the table below.
  • Attainment in 2021 was assessed using internal assessment materials.
  • Attainment for 2022 is below national figures (2022) in all subjects and combined, particularly in reading (-11%), writing (-8%) and combined (-6%). Maths is just below national at -2%.
  • High pupil mobility affected attainment. The figures for non-transient pupils (children present at GPS throughout reception and years 1 and 2) shows higher attainment for this group in most areas and figures are broadly in-line or above national averages for AE+ and for GD in some subjects.
  • Progress figures (value added) are calculated to show the progress children make from key stage one (7 years old) to the end of key stage two (11 years old).
  • Any positive figure (above zero) indicates children made more than average progress compared to other schools nationally. 
  • The value added scores show above average progress in reading and writing and progress broadly in-line with average in maths.
  • Inclusion of non-matched transient children makes all three figures positive, indicating better than average progress.
  • Final figures for value added progress will be published in December 2022.
