Academic Achievement

Outcomes for Years 6 and 2 in 2019

No outcomes were recorded for 2020 due to COVID-19 .  This is in line with DfE policy for 2020.

In March 2020, the Secretary of State for Education announced that the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments would not take place due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  
The following assessments were cancelled:  

  • end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 assessments (including tests and teacher assessment)  
  • phonics screening check  
  • multiplication tables check  
  • science sampling tests  
  • all statutory trialling 

The department recognises this creates a gap in KS1  and KS2 attainment data for Year 2 and Year 6 pupils in 2020 and future progress measures that rely on that data will also be missing.  

As there were no formal assessments in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years, schools should not be asked to provide assessment data to Ofsted or local authorities. 

2019 - Key Stage 2 Results

The results for Year 6 2019 are listed below.  These results are set alongside the provisional National results.  Leechpool Primary School is very proud of the ongoing improvements to achievement and attainment.  We continually compare ourselves to other schools to ensure the children are receiving the best possible education and perform to their full potential.  Ofsted 2017 stated "The curriculum is a significant strength of the school. Pupils’ academic achievement and personal development are supported extremely well through a vibrant, multilayered and engaging programme of studies and additional activities".
