Analysis of Academic Results 2019

The Key Stage 2 National Tests, which are taken by children across the country at the end of their primary school education, confirm how our children out-perform national standards by a considerable distance, with the average scaled score of an Alpha pupil being 114, compared to the national average of 105. In addition, a high proportion of our pupils reached the higher standard (110 and above): 72% (Reading), 89% (Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling), 72% (Maths).

Attainment in writing is Teacher assessed according to strict criteria and once again these results are favourable. Nationally, 78% of pupils were assessed as reaching the new standard. At Alpha, 100% were assessed as reaching this standard.

[National comparison statistics are from the data published by the Department for Education, July 2019]

There is no significant difference in attainment between pupils grouped according to gender, ethnicity or birth date. Girls slightly out-performed the boys in reaching the higher standard, but this is due to the individual variance in the year group rather than anything statistically significant.
