The third part of our vision statement – Achieve, is very important to us at Thurton Primary School. We aim for all our children to make at least good progress from their starting points. Due to this, our Year 6 results are consistently above National averages.

  • The school has met the National Floor Standards through the progress measure.
  • The school is above or broadly in line with national figures in every area apart from one.
  • The percentage of pupils in KS2 achieving a high score in reading and maths and working at greater depth in writing was 18% putting the school in the top 10% of other primary schools nationally. (Arbor Performance Summary)
  • 70 % of girls in KS2 reached the expected standard in reading, writing and maths putting the school in the top 30% of other primary schools nationally. (Arbor Performance Summary)
  • Learners in KS2 scored an average Scaled Score in Reading and Maths of 104 putting the school in the top 40% of other primary schools nationally. (Arbor Performance Summary)
  • Learners in KS2 made an average progress score of 0.8 in reading and maths putting the school in the top 40% of other primary schools nationally. (Arbor Performance Summary)
  • Disadvantaged KS2 pupils had an average scaled score equal to or above the national score for other pupils in mathematics. (Ofsted Data Dashboard)
  • The proportion of pupils that met the expected standard in phonics was above the national figure in Year 1. (Ofsted Data Dashboard)
  • The proportion of children that achieved a good level of development in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile was above the national figure. (Ofsted Data Dashboard)

School Priorities Identified 2016-17:

Areas Key Indicators/Trends/Patterns Priority Objective
A2 Reading and targeting groups A school analysis of reading records and school attainment data indicated a correlation between pupils who read regularly at home and achieving expected or higher than expected outcomes. During the summer term 2016, a one day audit of reading records took place, with a particular focus on upper KS2. Year 6: 100% of girls were reading regularly. 25% of boys were reading regularly. Year 5: 25% of girls were reading regularly. 20% of boys were reading regularly.

FFT Aspire indicated boys were ‘lower performing’ in KS2 reading achievement in the 2016 KS2 Outcomes. Our Summer 2016 school data analysis indicated an overall gap between ‘all boy’s’ average progress scores and ‘all girl’s’ average progress scores. Our school data indicated a much narrower gender gap in Year 5 (our current 2017 Year 6), but summer 2016 reading record data indicated a culture of not reading at home with this cohort with both boys and girls. This could have an impact on their chances of meeting the expected standard due to their low average prior attainment.

To further increase expectations for all pupil’s to read consistently at home, with particular focus on underperforming boys identified in our school data.




B1 Effectively targeting groups Our 2016 KS2 data indicated that ‘high prior attaining’ pupils succeed well above national expectations in both attainment and progress. However, it also indicated that some ‘low’ and ‘middle’ prior attaining pupils do not make the expected outcomes in reading, writing and maths.  Our current Year 6 2017 target data includes a significant number of ‘low prior’ attaining pupils (43%) and ‘middle prior’ attainers (36%). Nb: Some of these pupils have SEN (29%). These pupils may not achieve attainment at the expected level, however their success will be measured on how much progress they have made from their starting points. To identify and challenge key ‘low’ and ‘middle’ prior attaining pupils progress across school to ensure they make at least expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

Y6 Results Summary 2012

2012 SATs results have been published nationally. Comparing the percentage of Year 6 pupils attaining the expected level, Level 4, in English and maths and the progress the children have made, Thurton are proud to be 5th in Norfolk (BBC list).

“As there is no statistically better performing school in this group that is within a 75 mile radius of the focus school, an additional school has been highlighted – the method for selecting a school from outside of this group is explained in the similar schools guidance.” DFE performance tables linked to national similiar schools
