As a parent you will naturally be interested in how well Wood End is performing as a School in relation to government strategy and targets set for the primary school sector.
There have been numerous changes to assessment procedures, leading to challenging circumstances, with an ever changing assessment landscape that Year 2 and Year 6 have had to work with. This has meant they have had to constantly adapt throughout the year.
The content of the new National Curriculum is more challenging, and the expected standards in turn require a higher level of skills, application and understanding than the old 'level' system. Since the new curriculum is only in its second academic year, these standards have been additionally challenging for the first cohort of pupils to be assessed under the new system. However, once again our results are very high compared to the National figures. As you would expect, across the whole school, we are very proud of the hard work and positive commitment our children have demonstrated in their learning.
