Achievement at Greneway

Greneway is an inspiring and exciting place to learn.  The outstanding curriculum is exceptionally well matched to pupils’ needs and is central to securing pupils’ positive engagement and good achievement.


Middle Schools occupy the formative central ground in the education process and a distinctive and valuable feature of our school is that we span Key Stages Two and Three.  This ensures that the assessments at the end of Key Stage Two and the work which follows them all take place within one school, rather than at the point of transfer. This system   reaps the full benefits for the pupil of using these results formatively and diagnostically to maximise learning. We are immensely proud of the progress pupils make during their learning journey.

Key Stage 3                                                         
Reflecting the accelerated two-year Key Stage 3 curriculum, attainment at the end of Year 8 is high and consistently above comparable levels nationally. Pupils make consistently strong progress in a wide range of subjects developing secure knowledge and understanding.


Target setting is based on the expectation that pupils make 4 points progress per year (exceeding the traditional national expectation of 3 points progress per year).

Key Stage 2
Key Stage 2 covers school years 3 to 6 and age ranges 7 to 11 of which we cover Year 5 and Year 6 (ages 9 – 11). We use and apply assessment data from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 and measure progress from the beginning of Year 5 to the end of Year 6.It is a statutory requirement that children are tested at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6).  Tests are used to assess the children in reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) and maths.  These tests are marked externally. Writing is assessed internally by the school.

In 2016 all Year 6 pupils sat the entirely new SATs based on a new English and Maths curriculum. The results from this 2016 test are not comparable to previous years.
