Pre-Prep 2022 Results Buck The National Trend
In October, the Government published Key Stage 1 data statistics for 2022 for the first time since pre-pandemic in 2019.
The statistics are based on teacher assessments, as also used here at the Crescent School, and they reflect pupils’ end of Year 2 attainment.
Assistant Head and Head of Pre Prep, Alan Webb, explains, “Over the past three years our teachers have worked hard to provide a high standard of teaching and learning that engaged and supported pupils as we navigated the course of the pandemic. The national statistics show just how much of an impact the lockdowns had on children’s learning, at what is such an important formative stage, but here at the Crescent our assessments show pupils bucked that trend and continued to progress and achieve.”
Nationally Year 2 pupils meeting the expected standard in Reading was 67% in 2022 (down from 75% in 2019). At Crescent this was 100% (equal to 2019).
Nationally Year 2 pupils meeting the expected standard in Writing was 58% (down from 69% in 2019). At Crescent this was 95% (up from 85% in 2019).
Nationally Year 2 pupils meeting the expected standard in Maths was 68% (down from 76% in 2019). At Crescent this was 100% (up from 85% in 2019).
Mr Webb, continues, “This is another excellent endorsement of the Crescent’s approach and reassuring for parents who at this very difficult time put their trust in our teachers.”
