Standards and Academic Achievement (Progress)
Children at the end of Foundation Stage and Key Stage One achieve results that are often better than (and at least in line with) Leeds and national averages. In Key Two results have been improving and are now in line with or better than Leeds and national averages.
Although standards are important, for us the progress children make from their various starting points is the most important measure of how well we are teaching and they are learning.
Some children join us after Reception and we know that this mobility can affect our results. Our data analysis shows that the longer children are with us at Shire Oak, the better they catch up and move on.

Children are defined as having reached a good level of development (GLD) at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in:
the early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language) and;
the early learning goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.
The levels attained by children at the end of the EYFS are allocated a number as follows:
Emerging=1, Expected=2 and Exceeding=3.
For each of the 17 Early Learning Goals a child is recorded as have achieved a 1, 2 or 3. Consequently it is possible to give children an overall 'score'.

The graphs above are based on the unvalidated data, however we know that our validated data will be slightly better once children who were very, very new to the country are removed from the tables as approved by the DfE. When children do not have KS1 data they are usually ignored for the progress measure unless they achieve a level 2 or lower (in which case they are counted as not having made progress) or are level 6 (in which case they are counted as making 2 levels progress.) We have given the figures that will be the final published version.
