Key Stage Assessment Results

Key Stage Assessment Results

Every year we publish our end of Key Stage assessment results.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruptions this caused to schools, the government cancelled all statutory testing in primary schools in both 2020 and 2021. Teacher Assessments were completed and these have informed our planning so that we can continue to ensure every child catches up from lost learning and will achieve their potential.

Results from Previous Years

As each year we have very small cohorts of children taking statutory assessments, it is always helpful to look at trends and averages over a number of years. Compare school data on the DFE School Performance site.
