A note from Miss Whittington
Wishing you all prosperity, peace and love for 2019.
Some of you may have seen the Dagenham Post article regarding the Best and Worst Schools in Barking and Dagenham. Thousands of primary schools across the country have their results figures published by the Department for Education on an annual basis.
Schools can be ranked on two sets of results:
- Progress – the achievement of the pupils from year 2 to year 6.
- Attainment – the proportion of pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths. (Greater Depth is also measured).
The Dagenham Post chose to rank according to progress; rather than attainment, Our school continues to grow with additional children starting all of the time, with a range of different needs and starting points. These children are also included in our data – this is a huge accolade to the staff, pupils and parents.
The table on the right is an attainment summary of the overall performance at the end of key stage 2, for pupils reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths (all pupils):
Locally, we were the top performing school for the % of pupils meeting the expected standard:
||% of pupils meeting expected standard
|Beam Primary School
|The Leys Primary School
|John Perry Primary School
Well done to all! The provision in our school is fantastic, where the pupils, staff and parents work incredibly hard.
To further support your child, please remember that your child has their own Bugclub and Mathsfactor, accounts, which the school pays for, so that you can assist your child. Please ensure that they use it.
