During the academic year 2014/15 our most significant school improvement priority has been to improve the quality of teaching and raise the rates of progress and levels of attainment in maths. The impact of this work across the school is illustrated in the improved levels of attainment and rates of progress shown in the tables above; performance for this subject is now in line with national averages where previously it was below.

National curriculum levels carry a numerical score known as the Average Points Score. How does Harrowbarrow School compare to the national average using an APS comparison?

.. National APS (2014) School APS (2015)
Reading 29.0 30.3
Writing 27.9 30.3
Maths 29.0 29.7

Our school improvement priority for the academic year 2015/16 is to further improve the quality of teaching and rates of progress in maths.

Our KS1 school improvement priority for the academic year 2015/16 is to accelerate progress for more able children in KS1, ensuring a higher percentage exceed the expected standard by the end of Year 2. There is also a priority to improve the quality of teaching and performance outcomes in maths.

From September 2015 schools will no longer report pupil progress by National Curriculum levels. A new assessment and reporting system is being developed, which will indicate how secure children’s knowledge is against an age related national standard. Further details on this will be shortly be shared with parents.
