Latest Ofsted Report


As you may be aware, there are no statutory test results from 2019 / 2020 and 2020 / 2021 due to the suspension of testing because of COVID-19.The Department of Education (DfE) system for reporting our school performance data is called Analyse School Performance (ASP). 



Education Endowment Foundation, 2022- The Impact of COVID-19 on Learning:

  • COVID-19-related disruption has negatively impacted the attainment of all children, particularly those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • There is some evidence that in primary schools, younger year groups (Key Stage 1 pupils) have been the most significantly affected, with lower attainment than previous cohorts across all subjects.
  • Most evidence shows that despite some recovery by summer 2021, on average, pupils were not performing as well in both maths and reading as pre-pandemic cohorts.
