Key Ofsted and Funding Data

On this page you will find key information regarding the schools performance and government funding.


Ofsted - Raising Standards, Improving Lives 

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They are responsible for: 


  • maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education
  • childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training


  • a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people


  • publishing reports of our findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training.
  • informing policymakers about the effectiveness of these services

Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.

Performance Information

We focus on data analysis and pupil outcomes when we build our priorities for improvement on performance. The latest inspection data analysis can be found here. 

KS1 Results Analysis

2021-2022 SAT Results

We are not required to publish our Key Stage results for the academic year 2021 to 2022.This is because statutory assessments returned for the first time since 2019, without adaptations, after disruption caused by the pandemic.

The government will also not be publishing KS school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

If you have any queries regarding the schools performance then please contact the school direct.

2020 KS1 Results 

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.

Pupil Premium 

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is additional government funding given to schools to help them tackle problems faced by socially disadvantaged children and to close the attainment gap between those children and their peers.  Schools are free to use the pupil premium as they see fit but are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support low income families.

How is Pupil Premium allocated?

The main basis of allocation is an amount paid in respect of each child known to have been eligible for free school meals at any time during the last six years.  The principle behind this is that as a group, children eligible for free school meals have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for free school meals.  In addition, amounts are paid for looked after children who have been in care for more than six months and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Pupil Premium Funding Statements:

Physical Education and Sports Premium 

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school headteachers to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
