Year 1/Year 2 phonics screening

  • Within this year’s Year 1 cohort, 97% of pupils met or exceeded the expected standard of the phonics screening. This is well above both the Hertfordshire average (83%) and the National average (81%).
  • Within this year’s Year 2 cohort, 60% of pupils who found phonics learning in Year 1 challenging have now met the expected age-related standards, showing the impact of personalised support for these children in Y2.

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (Reception)

  • We are very pleased that 80% of pupils have achieved ‘a good level of development’ (pupil attainment in Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal social and emotional development, Literacy and Mathematics). This sustains high results for Alban Wood over the past 5 years and exceeds the Hertfordshire average of 72%.
  • Our pupils are making outstanding progress across EYFS (Nursery and Reception) because almost all pupils achieve expected progress and a substantial proportion achieve better than expected progress.
  • Personal/Social/Emotional Development (PSED): 100% achieving expected progress, 77% achieving better than typical progress
  • Communication and Language (CL): 100% achieving expected progress, 67% achieving better than typical progress
  • Physical Development (PD): 100% achieving expected progress, 73% achieving better than typical progress
  • Literacy (L): 96% achieving expected progress, 73% achieving better than typical progress
  • Maths (M): 100% achieving expected progress, 73% achieving better than typical progress.
