Progress Measure KS1 to KS2: School Figures compared to National Data

School level of progress is presented as a positive and negative number either side of a zero. A score of zero means pupils, on average, do as well as those with similar prior attainment nationally.




3 pupils were not included in this progress data due to being educated elsewhere and not doing KS1 assessments. From baseline entry to our school, we tracked these pupils as making significant progress from those starting points.

We continue to strive and ‘reach’ to ensure we sustain these excellent high levels of progress and attainment and build upon these successes. Mrs. Saville 2017

Ashton Keynes C of E Primary School KS2 SATS Results 2016



This year, the standard of Age Related expectations raised considerably for all schools which is reflected in the National data, we are very pleased with our results which reflect our rigorous school improvement journey and how we have been ‘reaching for the stars’ as a school. All of our children have made great progress from their individual starting points and should be very proud of themselves.

Strengths in our results:

  • Significantly above national in Reading
  • Significantly above national in EGPS (English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling)
  • Significantly above national in Maths
  • Significantly above national in Reading, Writing (Teacher assessed) and Maths combined

I am sure you would like to join me and the Governors in congratulating all of the pupils and staff on achieving such excellent results. Mrs Saville


“I feel immensely proud of our school. Despite the exceptional raise in expectations this year nationally, and this dramatically affecting many schools locally and nationally, our school has achieved some of its best results to date in nationally measured assessments in EYFS, Year 1 (phonics screening), KS1 SATs and KS2 SATs. The progress across the school in every year group is excellent.”


“I believe that these remarkably high standards across the school are down to: very high standards of teaching and learning, very high expectations from the leaders of the school, careful tracking of your children and ensuring teaching is tailored to their needs, quality interventions and the fabulous learning behaviours your children are now showing. In addition, we are proud that all of our children experience a very exciting and varied skills-based curriculum which proves to stimulate such high academic achievement as we have achieved across the school this year. All of Team AK have been reaching for the stars and although we made considerable improvements last year, this year we are shining incredibly brightly among local schools and nationally.”

Mrs. S. Saville Headteacher

Thank you and very well done to team AK

  • 100% disadvantaged pupils passed the phonics screening.
  • Significantly above national.
  • The 2 pupils who did not pass, made significant progress from their individual starting points.
  • A rise of 4.9% since 2015 and 29% since 2014.


 “As a governor of Ashton Keynes Primary School and retired headteacher, I wanted to express my thanks and give an enormous “well done” to everyone involved in achieving such excellent SATS results this year.

The efficient and effective teamwork throughout the school has really paid dividends, particularly with the new requirements that are so very much more demanding.

As a retired headteacher of over 14 years, I am amazed at how much more is expected of the children, year on year. So to have achieved such excellent results this year makes the enormous effort from everyone at AK, even more incredible.

 However I think we should also recognise that this increase in standards across the school has not impacted upon the opportunities for enrichment and FUN, which is after all what school is all about!

 Well done children and all your teachers and teaching assistants, you are all a great team!”

Mrs J Thompson Co-opted Governor
