All children in a state school in England complete key assessments throughout their time at school.
The most recent outcome of these standard attainment tests (SATs) for our pupils are as follows:
Please note that due to Covid-19, the Government did not publish any school educational performance data for the 2019/20 or 2020/21 school years.
In addition, the government will not publish KS2 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.
Our 2018/19 KS2 SATs results showed that a 96% of pupils met the age related standard in reading, writing and maths combined. These results included 100% of pupils attaining an age-related expectation in maths and in reading. These results placed The Lea as the highest attaining primary school in Harpenden, and in the top 6 across the whole of Hertfordshire.
In 2021/22 our KS2 SATs results showed that 96% of pupils met the age related standard and 39% of pupils reached a greater depth standard in reading, writing and maths combined.
We are delighted to see that this success has not come through excessive ‘revision’ or at the cost of limiting learning in the wider curriculum but rather from a more reflective and progressive approach to the teaching of the core subjects and an unbreakable belief that every child can achieve. We could not be prouder of the children and all of those involved.
These scores below are from the primary league tables (showing 2018/19 data) and show how much progress pupils at The Lea made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
These progress scores place The Lea in the top 3% of primary schools in the entire country.
