We have had a truly excellent year with improvements and progress in many areas. 

  • 100% of our Year 6 children achieved the national standard or better in reading, writing, Grammar Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) and maths
  • 88% of our Year 6 children achieved above the national standard in reading, 
  • 50% of our Year 6 children achieved  above the national standard or in GPS
  • 63%  of our Year 6 children achieved  above the national standard or in maths
  • 75%  of our Year 6 children achieved  above the national standard or in writing

Our Key Stage 1 results were also strong:

  • 100% of our Year 2 children achieved the national standard or better in reading
  • 100% of our Year 2 children achieved the national standard or better in maths
  • 100% of our Year 2 children achieved the national standard or better in writing
  • 60% achieved above the national standard in all subjects

Our Early Years and Key Stage 2 teacher assessments were rigorously moderated by West Berkshire and in all cases our judgements were upheld.

These excellent results, however, will not be published by the Department for Education, and you may ask:

“Why aren't the results published”?

In very small schools with low pupil numbers, such as ours, there are sometimes classes of fewer than 6 pupils. When groups of children are very small, the low risk of being able to identify an individual child from the data could be seen as unfair. Therefore, it is the policy of both the Department for Education and Ofsted not to publish results data for groups of fewer than 6 children. They call this 'suppressing' data. 

After all our hard work, our results were 'above' some local schools. The same is true for overall progress when looking at Shefford and Chaddleworth children combined.  So you can see how far the school has come. This has been the result of focus and drive by the excellent staff team who have upped the standards and quality of teaching to a point where the learning can be speeded up and so our amazing children are making substantial progress.
