Department for Education
Many Parents are keen to see how we are performing in relation to other schools.
The Department for Education (DfE) Performance Tables provide a reliable and accessible source of comparative information on pupil attainment and progress, absence, workforce and finance. The Performance Tables include percentages of achievement at expected standards or above in reading, writing and maths and the measure of progress in each subject. You can find the School Performance Tables from the DfE by clicking the link below.

We introduced the ASA school swimming awards in 2015-16 as a way of tracking and accelerating progress in swimming, leading to 90% of Y6 pupils leaving at the required standard (an increase of 34% since introducing the scheme) in 2019.
Swimming progress was halted in 2020, as from spring term 2 no classes were able to attend the pool due to covid restrictions.
