Year Two

Carrington Infant School in line with current Government policy undertakes continual teacher assessment of Year 2 pupils and testing in May.

The results for the 2019 assessments are below. 

2016 was a challenging year with the introduction of new standards and assessments causing a dip in results that has been proactively addressed by the Leadership team, governors and staff.

There has been a significant rise in results since then due to the hard work and commitment of the staff.

Carrington Infant School historically achieves well and the school is continuing to move forward.  Children make good progress over their time in the school and this continues into the junior school. Please see the school development plan section of the website to see how the school is continuing to improve. The school governors and leaders are determined to ensure that the children achieve as well as they can and that the school is constantly striving to improve.

Year One Phonic Results

Children take a phonic test in June in Year One. They read a range of made up words that test their phonic knowledge.

There has been a thorough revision on phonics teaching over the last four years to ensure that the school continues to make progress and we never want to stand still. 

2019 was a challenging year and there was a dip due to some children being borderline and we wanted them to be secure. The average point score however has increased over time with more children achieving higher marks.  We are fully aware of the dip and are working with children in the current Year 2 to address gaps including working with the local teaching school. The children all made significant progress over the year in their scores. By the end of Year 2 children nearly all pass their phonics test at 95.1% which is above the national average which is pleasing when considering that we have an additional resource placement in the school and the starting points for Reception. The cohort who took the phonics test in 2019 came into school low with 30% at age appropriate levels in Reading.


End of EYFS results Good Level of Development


Assessments are carried out through observations over their Reception year and are summed up towards the end of Reception. To achieve a good level of development, a child has to reach the expected level in Personal, Social and Emotional Development,  Communication and Language and Physical Development as well as in Reading, Writing, Number, Shape, Space and Measures.
