Drayton Community School in line with current Government policy undertakes SATs testing in May. These combined with continual teacher assessment inform the attainment at the end of KS1.
The results for the 2018 assessments for the academic year 2017– 2018 are above that of the previous years for expected standard.
There has been a significant rise in expected standard results in 2018 due to the hard work and commitment of the staff.
Drayton Community Infant historically since 2017 achieves above the national results and the school is well placed to achieve this again. Please see the school development plan section of the website to see how the school is continuing to improve. The school trustees and leaders are determined to ensure that the children achieve as well as they can and that the school is constantly striving to improve.

Year One Phonic Results
Children take a phonic test in June in Year One. They read a range of made up words that test their phonic knowledge.
There has been a new phonics action plan implemented this year to ensure that the school makes progress- see phonics development plan. We have also implemented the following to improve our results:
- Individualised phonics packs for each child who is WTS or did not pass the Phonics screening check in Year 1.
- Daily phonics interventions
- Phonics clubs
- New Phonics assessment scheme
We have therefore, targeted matching the national % for 2019.
