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.  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 again awarded the JEP Writer of the Year in the age 8 -13 year class.

The school currently has 202 children on roll including 18 in the Nursery – 47% girls and 53% boys.

As can be seen in our 2015/16 data 23% of our pupils received SEN intervention 15% 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 2016.  .

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 EAL children.

At the end of KS2 (Yr6) 75% 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 made by pupils needing SEN support. Independent and confident learners in and around the school are a clear result of these programmes.

Attendance remains above Jersey and UK at 96%. Staff turnover at St Lawrence is low and relationships with stakeholders and the local community are strong.

Our Website has been updated

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.
