1.                  Overview

Educational Diversity supports students who are unable to access mainstream provision as a result of social, emotional, behavioural or medical needs.  As such, the cohort is constantly changing.

While there is no statutory requirement for Pupil Referral Units (PRUs) to take part in national testing, we are mindful of the need to maintain a focus on academic attainment and therefore choose to enrol our pupils so they can participate.

Moreover, standardised testing provides valuable information about pupils as they return to mainstream education.

At the time of the Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests, there were 4 pupils on roll in year 6.

This report investigates two aspects:

·      Pupils' attainment against national benchmarks

·      Pupils'  progress between KS1 to KS2

For self-evaluation, this report also compares our figures against other pupils nationally.

There is no available data specifically on the performance of pupils in PRUs, although for statistical analysis our pupils are included in the category of “disadvantaged pupils”.

 We do, however, recognise that the small data set means comparisons cannot truly be statistically significant.

Comparative data is taken from the DfE document:

SFR47_2015_KS2_National_Tables

 

2.       Measures of Attainment

a.   Pupils gaining at least Level 4 in Reading

Of the 4 pupils, 2 (50%) reached the national benchmark of Level 4 in the test.

The other 2 pupils attained below level 3, which is below the national expectation.

For comparison, 89% of all pupils nationally reached level 4.

Of those categorised as disadvantaged pupils, the proportion was 71%.

 

b.   Pupils gaining at least Level 4 in Writing

Of the 4 pupils, only 1 (25%) reached the benchmark of Level 4.

Of the others, 1 pupil attained level 3, 1 pupil attained below level 3 and 1 was absent on the day of testing.

For comparison, 80% of all pupils nationally reached level 4 and 62%.of those categorised as disadvantaged pupils

 

c.    Pupils gaining at least Level 4 in Maths

Of the 4 pupils, only 1 (25%) reached the national benchmark of Level 4.

2 pupils attained level 3 with the other 1 pupil attaining below level 3.

For comparison, 87% of all pupils nationally reached level 4 and 67% of those categorised as disadvantaged pupils.

 

d.   Pupils gaining at least Level 4 in all of Reading, Writing and Maths

Of the 4 pupils, only 1 (25%) reached Level 4 in all 3 of the tests.

For comparison, 80% of all pupils nationally reached level 4 and 56% of those categorised as disadvantaged pupils.

 

3.        Measures of  Progress

The national expectation is that pupils make at least 2 levels progress between KS1 and KS2.

However, it is difficult to assess progress for pupils whose test performance falls below the test range – ie below level 3. In this case we can use teacher assessments (TA).

Moreover, no pupil actually spent the whole of KS2 within an Education Diversity centre.

 

a.     Pupils making expected progress in Reading

Of the 4 pupils, 2 (50%) did make expected progress:

 

Pupil W

KS1 Level 2

KS2 Level 4

Pupil X

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Level 4

 

The tests could not recognise progress for 2 pupils because their attainment was below level 3.

Both of these pupils had low starting points.

Teacher assessment for these pupils does indicate progress.

 

Pupil Y

KS1 Level 2

KS2 Test Below level 3

KS2 TA Level 4

Pupil Z

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Test Below level 3

KS2 TA Level 3

 

a.     Pupils making expected progress in Writing

Of the 4 pupils, 2 (50%) did make the expected progress:

Pupil W

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Level 4

Pupil Y

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Level 3

1 pupil performed below level 3 and 1 was absent.

Teacher assessment for these pupils does indicate progress.

Pupil X

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Test Absent

KS2 TA Level 3

Pupil Z

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Test Below level 3

KS2 TA Level 3

a.     Pupils making expected progress in Maths

Of the 4 pupils, 3 (75%) did make expected progress:

Pupil W

KS1 Level 2

KS2 Level 4

Pupil X

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Level 3

Pupil Y

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Level 3

The tests did not recognise progress for 1 pupil whose attainment was below level 3.

Teacher assessment does indicate he made progress.

Pupil Z

KS1 Level 1

KS2 Test Below level 3

KS2 TA Level 3
