St Lawrence School 2014/15
Achievement and Progress at St Lawrence Primary School
Our school focuses
on the achievement of all children. Pupils’ achievement is measured in two
ways: their progress and their attainment. Progress measures how far the child
achieves from their starting point. Attainment measures how high they achieve.
For example, a child with a low starting point may make far more progress in
their learning than a child who finishes the year with higher attainment.
Together, progress and attainment measures tell us how well the children are
doing at school.
The context of our school
Our school is the
original Parish School and most children live within our catchment. We have close links with the Parish Hall,
Church and the wider community. We participate in many competitions and events
within the community, and are a Pallions Centre for Jerriais. We offer a wide
range of extra curricular activities/events and we are really proud of our
recent achievements in becoming National (UK) winners of the St John Ambulance
First Aid competition. We have also been very successful in the Eisteddfod
(French Section) as 3 of our pupils won their respective classes. One of our
pupils recently was awarded the JEP writer of the Year in the age 8 -13 year
The school currently
has 219 children on roll including 30 in the Nursery – 49% girls and 51% boys.
As can be seen in
our 2014/15 data 20% of our pupils received SEN intervention 12 % at School
Action level. 10 % of our pupils had English as an Additional Language.
We are really proud
of our achievements and attainment to date. Our 3 year rolling averages data
shows a consistent and very positive trend. Most of the pupils at St Lawrence
School made better than expected progress over the last 3 years, with almost
all pupils making the expected progress.
The core subjects,
Literacy and Numeracy, are particular strengths of the school. Attainment of
pupils at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 remain in line with the Jersey
national standard in 2015. The school has an improving picture with writing
particularly strong at Level 4 and 5. Expected progress of two levels, from
Year 2 – Year 6, for all groups is in line with, or above sector and Island
averages for reading, writing, and maths, with girls marginally outperforming
boys in reading in KS1.
This data reflects
that our priority has been to ensure that each child has a solid foundation of
core skills in Numeracy and Literacy. The Key Stage 2 data also shows that
there is no significant difference between groups – gender, summer births or
At the end of KS2
(Yr6) 45.83% of our pupils transferred to the Fee Paying Secondary Sector.
Our school continues
to make excellent contributions to the children’s holistic development with a
wide range of ‘other achievements’ including success in various sections of the
Eisteddfod, sporting and community competitions. The intervention of new
teaching strategies (wellbeing groups and vertical grouping in both Maths and
Literacy) are raising achievement and we are extremely proud of the progress
that pupils needing SEN support. Independent and confident learners in and
around the school are a clear result of these programmes.
above Jersey and UK at 95.98%. Staff turnover at St Lawrence is low and
relationships with stakeholders and the local community are strong.

Please bear with us as building a new website is a massive task. We are busy writing new pages and material but at the moment we have focused on what we regard as priority. Parents and pupils can now access information about school, download and print out forms and see what's going on in classrooms.
