End of Key Stage Results and Phonics Screening

Children at Lightwater Village School consistently achieve well above the expected attainment for their age group. Performance is high in all areas. More information on the performance of the school can be found within the latest Ofsted Report here.  Further information on the context of the school can be found on the Dfe School Peformance website here. We monitor the progress of children throughout their time with us to ensure that all are given the opportunities to achieve the best they can. This means that where children are experiencing difficulties these are quickly identified and each child is supported with their particular needs. Our Special Needs coordinator ensures that support is gained from outside agencies, where necessary, for individuals and that a programme of support through additional staffing is put in place. All teachers will teach to different ability groups within the class enabling all children to achieve their potential. Equally, as we assess and monitor the progress of each child we can see where some may need to be extended and challenged with their learning. We regularly update parents on the progress of their child and how we and they can support more.

The phonics screening check is a check of a child’s ability to decode words using only his or her phonic knowledge.  It helps us as a school to confirm whether a child has met the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 1.  The check is a statutory requirement for all children and takes places in the Summer Term.  Children who do not take the check in Year 1, or who did not meet the expected standard, will take the check again at the end of Year 2.  Our results this academic year 2015 to 2016 were 9% higher than achieved last year.

The following table compares the percentages by phonics result for the school in 2016 with the national results for 2015.
