The performance tables for 2019 show that nationally (out of 20,553 schools), we are:

  •  The highest performing school for our average scaled score in maths (115)
  •  The second highest performing school for our average scaled score in reading (115)
  •  In 10th place for the percentage of our pupils achieving greater depth in reading, writing and maths combined (47%)
  •  In 14th place for our maths progress (7.4)
  •  In 22nd place for our reading progress (7.6)

The tables show that out of all the schools in Hertfordshire (481 schools), we are:

  •  1st for reading progress
  •  1st for maths progress
  •  1st for the percentage of our pupils achieving greater depth in reading, writing and maths combined
  •  1st in scaled scores for reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling

These fantastic results reflect the hard work, commitment and dedication of children, staff and governors across the school and I would like to express my pride in what has been achieved by the school community.

December 2019 Letter to parents - validated data

2019 Outcomes Parent Letter

We were delighted to receive two letters from the Director of Educational Services to congratulate the staff and pupils on the fantastic outcomes at the end of KS2 in 2019.  Our school is one of only 13 in Hertfordshire with more than 85% of pupils reaching age related expectations in reading, writing and maths combined and more than 30% reaching greater depth in all subjects. 

This is a wonderful achievement and testament to the continued hard work and determination of the staff to provide the very best learning experiences for our pupils.
