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 task 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 much later in the next academic year. 

We are very proud of the attainment and achievement of our children, but this year we are particularly pleased with the progress our Year 6 children made from their on-entry data to outcomes of the national tests. 

Over the past five 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 more challenging curriculum (2014) which has been introduced across the whole school and is now well established.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic school are not required to publish their exam and assessment results from 2020 or 2021. Statutory examinations did not/will not take place during these two years.
