Shenton Primary School

Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence

Standards & Achievements

Shenton Primary School children usually make exceptional progress throughout all stages in our school.

Many children speak English as a new or additional language, and learn English well.

Every year approximately 35% of our children change. Many of those that come to our school are new to Leicester and new to England! Our International community means that we enjoy learning about each other and about different countries around the world.

Results are presented as the proportion of children who meet expected standards, and the progress that children make.

Here you will find a summary of our test results at the end of Reception (five years old), Year 2 (seven year olds) and Year 6 (eleven year olds). We usually achieve results close to National averages by the end of Y6, and children generally make very good progress. This data includes many children who are learning English as an additional language.

In 2016 the children in Y2 and Y6 were given new tests or SATs (Standardised Assessment Tests) that link to the 2014 National Curriculum. The expectations are higher so results should not be compared to previous years.

The results at Year 6 in 2019 were what we expected in Maths, Writing, and Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling. The results in Reading and Writing were lower than Maths, as this includes many children still developing their English language skills.  We continue to strive to ensure every child reaches their full potential in all subjects.

Below you will find 2 sets of results - attainment (what the children achieved against the end of Y6 Government expectations) and progress (how much the children have learned since the end of Year 2 to Year 6). As a school, we are allowed to discount children who arrive with no English language skills in Year 5 or Year 6, to give you fairer comparative information for you to consider.

The progress set of results show how many of our children make expected or better progress than other children Nationally.
