Assessment Results 2017

Year 6 pupils are expected to reach a “pass mark” of 100 out of 120 (a scaled score calculated from the tests).  This is the national expectation.  Those achieving beyond 110 on this scale are deemed to be working at the higher standard or "greater depth".  

Tetherdown continues to perform above the national average in most areas.  Changes to external guidance throughout the academic year lead to a very strict marking scheme being used in schools for the Teacher Assessment of Writing.  

The Senior Leadership Team is evaluating the data and will work with governors to identify strategies which will support children in working beyond expectations; implementing ways to ensure pupils achieve highly in all areas of their learning.  This is what we at Tetherdown do well. 

We are already looking into ways of:

  • Enhancing our creative curriculum and providing children with exciting and inspiring resources to develop writing in different genres;
  • Building on the mathematics curriculum to enable children to grasp concrete, pictoral and abstract ways of learning number facts, skills and strategies whilst being challenged to apply their learning through deeper thinking in a variety of problem solving situations.
