Significant changes to the assessment regime in 2016 represented a challenge for all schools and the improvement in all areas since is expected to continue. Results in all three core areas of Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) and Maths are above the National standard of 100.

Key Stage 2 tests are undertaken in English and Maths only. Other areas of the curriculum are not assessed nationally and consequently do not appear in nationally validated data sets. However, the broad range of other subjects undertaken are internally assessed and show pupils to be making good progress.


GL Assessment Data

The school has been making use of GL assessments to judge the performance over time. These are standardised age related assessments that are used nationally and can provide an indication of the progress made by a student over time.

Tests are undertaken at the beginning of Year 5 and then again at the end of a set period. Progress is shown by the mean score of students and the movement between stanines. Students are tested at the end of each curriculum year and progress is measured by the change in relative score from one year to the next.

Assessment data at the end of Year 8 (Test 13) shows the mean SAS score to have improved across all areas. This represents progress from the students’ starting point.

The work undertaken throughout middle school is focused on preparing pupils for their future education at upper school. The preparation in Year 7 and Year 8 is designed to provide the foundations for their studies in English, maths and science in addition to the foundation subjects. Specialist teaching in the humanities and languages in addition to the arts and technology subjects mean pupils leave the school prepared for their GCSE studies at upper school. Data from the upper schools show students from Gilbert Inglefield Academy to have performed extremely well compared to their peers in their GCSE examinations.

Pupils make excellent progress and achieve high standards in the four years that they attend the school. External data is provided in the form of Key Stage 2 SAT exams taken at the end of Year 6. The school also undertakes assessments at the end of Year 8 using nationally recognised tests to ensure that progress can be validated and benchmarked against other schools.
