The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with Swindon local authority and national averages. We are delighted with the excellent results across the school. They are a tribute to the children and the staff.
Please note that 2018 national and local comparative data is not available yet in the majority of cases (some 2018 KS2 comparisons are shown). The remaining comparisons will be posted as soon as they become available. In the meantime 2017 data is shown.
Early Years Foundation Stage
82% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years Framework. This is above the 2018 local authority average of 70% and the national average of 72%.
A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, mathematics, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.
Year One Phonic Screening
81% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test. This is in line with the 2018 local authority average 82%. National average (83%).
Key Stage One
This is the third year of the revised testing and assessment arrangements for Y2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents KS1 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
At the end of Key Stage 1, teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics and science. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.
The current measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Y2.
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.
Y2 attainment was very high in 2018. East Wichel performance was above the 2018 national average in every subject area by wide margins. Attainment was also above the local authority in all areas at Greater Depth (2018 data).

Key Stage Two
Children in Year 6 are also assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum. The curriculum introduced in 2014 provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of Key Stage 2.
The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80.
Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for their age
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum.
In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a High Standard. Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.
Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, mathematics and science. For further information, please see the leaflet Information for parents KS2 from the Standards and Testing Agency.
East Wichel pupils performed below the national average in reading and writing.
