Earlsheaton Infants Results Trends

We are pleased with our 2018 results, which were due to all the hard work done by our children and staff.

Although the number of children reaching GLD in 2018 fell from 2016 and 2017, it should be noted that these were exceptional cohorts. The dip in 2015 was also a cohort variation as this group had a variety of very complex social and emotional needs which impacted on their learning all the way through school. Our 2018 GLD figure is broadly in line with 2013 and 2014, which is more typical. It is also still above national GLD figures.

After disappointing results in 2012 and 2013 we introduced a daily phonic lesson where children were grouped according to the stage they were at, rather than their age. This had an immediate effect and results have risen since then. Although the % of children meeting the phonic standard fell to be in-line with the National figure in 2016 we knew this was due to the cohort variation seen at the end of Reception in 2015. This was evidenced by the rise back up over the next two years. We are delighted to remain so far above National.

In 2018 we were delighted that the two children who didn’t meet the standard at the end of Year One passed the test with flying colours in Year 2. This means every child who completed Year 2 in July 2018 met the National Phonic Standard over 2 years.

The dip in 2017 was due to this cohort of children having the particular needs mentioned above. We fully expected it to fall, as this was the pattern for these children at the end of Reception and for the Year One phonic testing. We were delighted to be above National in all subject areas, except Maths- which we were in-line with. 

'Vulnerable' Children Eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)

Children who are eligible for the government’s Pupil Premium funding are known as ‘Vulnerable’, as data shows they often perform below children who do not receive the funding. Schools are expected to close this gap in achievement between our 'Vulnerable' children and the overall national score of ‘All Children’.

Overall, we are very pleased with how we are closing the achievement gap. The last few years we have used our Pupil Premium Grant funding to pay for additional support staff hours, which they use to run catch-up programmes in Reading, Writing, Maths, Phonics and Social Language skills. This is shows that our use of funding is effective. 

We were slightly disappointed that only 50% of our vulnerable Reception children achieved GLD in 2018 but it should be remembered that this is a very small data set. There are only 8 children eligible for the funding in that cohort, and the 4 that did not achieve GLD have significant and complex needs. 

In phonics and at the end of Year 2 however, it should be noted that we were closing the achievement gap faster than schools Nationally in 2018. The only exception is in Year 2 maths. However, the Intervention programme we use (First Class @ Number) has now been updated to reflect the changes in the curriculum and our staff have now completed this update training. We expect to see the positive impact of this in 2019.
