July 2017 Results, Ofsted Report and Ofsted Parent View Survey

Earlsheaton Infants Results Trends

We are pleased with our 2017 results, which were due to all the hard work done by our children and staff. It also shows the impact of new resources and the extra hours given to our Teaching Assistants to run a range of 'catch up' intervention programmes, for those children who need a bit extra.

We were confident that the dip in our results in 2015 (although we were still in line with the National figure) was down to a cohort variation; a large number of children showed social/emotional and communication issues which we supported by an Intervention programme called SULP. As we predicted, our Good Level of Development scores- which indicate Key Stage One ‘readiness’ -have sharply risen again to be well above the national figure.

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. We were delighted with how far above the national figure our children have been for the past three years. Although this 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 in 2017.

Although the percentage of children meeting or exceeding the National Standard fell from 2016, we know that this is due to this cohort of children having particular needs. 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 know that our results will rise to above National figures again in 2018.

'Vulnerable' Children Eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant

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’.

As the achievement gap in 2015 was -10% this shows that the way we are spending our funding is having a very positive effect.

As predicted last year, the fall is 2016 was down to the cohort variation identified at the end of Reception in 2015. The gap has not only closed, our “Vulnerable’ children outperformed ‘All Children’ nationally.

In 2016 the gap closed significantly in Reading and Science and our ‘Vulnerable’ children outperformed ‘All Children’ nationally in Writing and Maths. Although the gap significantly widened in 2017 we are confident that this is due to the cohort variation we have been tracking since these children left Reception in 2015. Our ‘Vulnerable’ children were a group who were particularly affected by low levels of social and emotional literacy and who struggled to access the more rigorous assessment criteria for Year 2. We are very confident that the narrowing and closing of the gap seen in 2016 will be evident again in 2018.
