Performance Information



Currently, children in school are formally assessed at the end of Key Stage Two before they leave Chesham to attend High School.

In May, they undertake statutory tests (SATs) in Reading, Mathematics and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar which are marked externally. They also take a writing test which is internally marked.

Children's progress is constantly assessed throughout their school career with benchmarking teacher assessments, informed by national tests, at the end of Key Stage One (Year 2), baseline assessments against the Early Learning Goals completed on entry into the Foundation Stage and phonics testing in Year One.

Results of SATs tests are published at the end of the school year (July) although not officially verified until December of the same year. Results for 2017 will be displayed here shortly.

We are very proud of the attainment and achievement of all our children.

Over the past two years, there has been significant change in the way in which results are interpreted and reported. We do not report in terms of levels but in terms of those children who have, or have not, achieved the "national standard" for their age and those who are achieving "at greater depth."

These tests reflects a new and more challenging curriculum (2014) which has been introduced across the whole school and is now more established.
