Performance Measures

Performance measures

At primary level every school is measured by its results at the end of EYFS (Good Level of Development), Year 1 (Phonics test scores), Year 2 (end of Key Stage One) and at Year 6 (end of Key Stage Two). For 2016 CFS have no end of KS2 results as there was no Year 6 class. At secondary level, every school is measured by its results at GCSE.

Key Stage 1 SATS

With 30 children in each class each child is worth approximately 3%.

At KS1 our scores this year were above West Sussex in all areas and above national for Writing and Mathematics. Our reading score was slightly below national (2% less than one child).

Early Years Foundation Stage

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, school performance is judged on how many children achieve a Good Level of Development (GLD) at the end of their Reception year. In order to achieve a Good Level of Development, children need to have met at least expected in all 12 of the Early Learning Goals. Our results showed an 11.7% improvement on 2015 and are considerably above both West Sussex and National figures.

Good Level of Development

Progress and attainment of children in all year groups is tracked and measured internally each half term. This enables support and interventions to be updated and put into place regularly in order to ensure that all children reach their potential.
