Key Information

 General Information about Surrey Street Primary School 

Surrey Street Primary School is an LA maintained school which caters for children of all abilities from the age of 4 to 11 years.

The school is situated on the edge of the town centre in our newly refurbished building. We left our old school site at Easter 2013 as the building was too small for our expanding school.

Our new school building has a Key Stage 1 block (Early Years, Year 1 & 2) and a Key Stage 2 block (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6). We have a large classrooms, a large hall, dance studios, library and music rooms. Outside are 3 amazing playgrounds, lots of grassy space and views over to the airport!

The school day starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.30pm. The lunch break is from 11.30am until 12.30pm for Early Years (reception), 12.00pm until 1.00pm for infants and 12.15pm until 1.15pm for the juniors. All children have a mid-morning break of 15 minutes and KS1 may have an afternoon break.

The total amount of time spent on teaching during the normal school week is 22 hours and 30 minutes for children in Years 1 and 2 (KS1) and 23 hours and 45 minutes for children in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 (KS2). This does not include the time for registration, assembly, break or lunch times.

We ask, for reasons of supervision, that children are not sent to school before 8.45am as the school site will not open until then. Only children who are House Captains are allowed into the school before this, everyone else should wait outside. Children in Early Years (Reception) should be taken by a responsible adult to the classroom door before it closes at 8.55am.

*The school inspection update, published 24th November 2016 states: 'Inspectors should interpret 2016 Key Stage 2 writing performance carefully, given that this is the first year of teacher assessment using a new curriculum and against the new interim framework.'

A pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil scores in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. The raw score is converted into a scaled score.
The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is:

  • 80 is the lowest scaled score that can be awarded
  • 120 is the highest scaled score

A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

 

Pupils achieving a high standard

Pupils awarded a scaled score of 110 or more are identified as achieving the higher standard.

Progress

Individual pupil level progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score will be zero.
A school’s progress scores for English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores.
This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.

  • A score of 0 means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between key stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

It is also worth noting that the progress figure is dependent on the accuracy and reliability of the end of KS1 assessments.
