All children in a state school in England complete key assessments throughout their time at school. The outcome of these standard attainment tests (SATs) for children at The Lea can be found on the link below.

The key assessments that are referred to are:
- Reception GLD: the percentage of children who reach the expected level in the prime areas of learning and in the specific areas of literacy and mathematics meaning they have achieved a “Good Level of Development” in reception.
- Year 1 phonics: the percentage of children who meet the pass standard on the year 1 phonics screening check – a check of children’s phonological reading skills.
- Year 2 SATs: the percentage of children who have either “met the standard” or achieved “greater depth” in reading, writing and maths according to teacher assessments.
- Year 6 SATs: the percentage of children who have either “met the standard” or achieved “greater depth” in reading, writing and maths according to final key stage tests. This section also includes a progress score which is calculated based on the progress children make from year 2 to year 6 compared to all other children in the country.
We are always proud of how are children perform academically from a range of starting points and we strive for our children to reach their full potential. A particular area of celebration most recently was the success our school has had in its reading outcomes at year 6. Last year the progress score of +2.97 was in the top 25 schools in Hertfordshire.
