Performance Data & Results


At Highfurlong there are a range of ways we assess our pupils. Where possible, pupils will be entered for National tests such as SATs and Phonics screening, but where this isn’t appropriate, we have alternative assessment arrangements to capture and celebrate progress. Therefore, it is neither feasible nor reasonable to compare Highfurlong with other schools on a national or local level, there is a link below to this statutory information. We develop a personal assessment pathway for each pupil leading to their end destinations when they leave Highfurlong. 

Internally we use B-squared assessment frameworks to assess our 3 main pathways – Sailors, Discoverers and Voyagers. These frameworks serve as valuable tools in gauging the development of our students across various stages of their education. Key stage 4 and 5 are assessed within B-squared Steps 4 Life also, but we also find the most appropriate external accreditation which links to their personal aspirations and provides them with the qualification they need.

Sharing results and destination data is integral to our transparency. Recognising the need for privacy, especially with smaller group sizes often below 10 pupils, we present whole group percentages. This practice safeguards the anonymity of individuals while still providing a meaningful overview of our collective achievements.
