Progress in reading, writing and maths

These scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of Key Stage 1(opens a popup) and the end of Key Stage 2(opens a popup), compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

The scores are calculated by comparing the key stage 2 test and assessment results of pupils at this school with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with similar assessment results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 1. A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1. A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1. A negative progress score does not mean pupils made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 1. The majority of schools have progress scores between -5 and +5.

School Policies Keeping Your Child Safe
Child Protection Statement At Donnington Wood CE Junior School, we recognise that your child is your responsibility and their safety and well-being your concern. We wish to work in partnership with you, and we will share successes with you, and discuss with you any concerns that we may have. Since your child’s welfare is also our first priority, there may be rare occasions when our concern for your child means that we have to consult other agencies. We will endeavor to contact you in the first instance and share our concerns and where possible, seek your consent to a referral being made to Children’s Social Care. However, this will only be done where we believe that such discussion will not place your child at further or increased risk of significant harm. The welfare of the child will be paramount and will override any other considerations where we consider that to be the case. The procedures we follow are those laid down by the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Children Board.
The school has adopted both Child Protection and Anti Bullying Policies for the safety of all.
If you would like to know more about our procedures or the policies, please speak to Mr Fox, Mr Rawson or Miss Ganderton, who are the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL).
