Due to Covid-19 all statutory assessments were withdrawn. The results below are the most recent from 2018/2019. We will will update this when testing returns in Summer 2021.

Standards and Assessment

All children are assessed by their class teacher throughout the year in order to challenge and support learning. These may be informal, on-going assessments, or more formal tests. All children in school have targets set for their academic achievement and are very much involved in assessing their own progress.

Parents are invited to attend parents’ evening in the Autumn and Spring terms and written reports are sent home towards the end of the summer term. All parents and teachers communicate using the reading record in Key Stage 1 and parents are welcome into school to discuss their child’s progress at any time. Parents can also request to see documentation relating to their child. All parents should be assured that if we have any concerns at all relating to a child’s progress – or welfare – they will be contacted.

Mrs Wood tracks the progress of all children carefully, throughout their time in school, to maximise potential.

Children are statutorily assessed at the end of Reception, Year 2 and Year 6 against national criteria. Parents are informed of the results. Children in Year 1 complete the phonics screening test and children in Year 4 complete the Times Table test in the summer term.

Results 2019

Since 2006, Hambleton has been one of the top performing schools in the country and we continue to strive to maximise both pupil and teacher performance. Our 2018 results continually place the attainment of our children within the top 10% nationally, as has been the case for the last few years and we expect to be the same for 2019/2020.


Following external moderation, 91% of children in Reception have exceeded national expectations at the end of their first year in school (2019)

Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

100% of children achieved the expected level compared to 81% nationally (2019). This put the children’s’ achievements within the top 5% nationally, which is why we received a letter from Nick Gibb, Minister of State for Education congratulating our school.
