School Performance Data

Barnsbury is pleased with the assessment data achieved this year, across the school.

The number of children achieving a Good Level of Development in Early Years has increased for the fourth year running.

In Early Years and Key Stage One phonics was a key priority and the school introduced Read Write Inc phonics. This has proven very successful with the number of children achieving age related expectations significantly increased.

In 2015/16 the Department for Education (DfE) introduced significant changes to the ways in which pupils are assessed at the end of Key Stage One and Two. Currently no national averages are available for Key Stage One. We will share these as soon as possible, when they are released in November. 

As a result of changes, national average percentages, in Key Stage Two, for key indicators of achievement were significantly lower in 2016 than for the indicators used prior to that.Barnsbury’s provisional 2016 results are positive with children achieving the provisional national in reading and exceeding in writing. Whereas in 2015 the school results were lower than the national averages, the 2016 results are higher in reading, writing and English grammar, punctuation and spelling.
