Primary league tables 2016 Top 1000 primary schools

first_imgIt should be taken into account, however, that the school only had 13 eligible pupils. The second school in the Telegraph’s rankings is Lowbrook Academy in Maidenhead, where 100 per cent of the 29 pupils achieved the expected standard in their SATs exams and 45 per cent met the higher standard.Comparisons with previous results are inadvisable, since previous tables produced by the Telegraph originally sorted schools on the average point score across all subjects, which is no longer a measure used by the Government.Furthermore, considering the new curriculum, ‘expected standard’ is not a direct equivalent with Level 4 – the previous national standard for key stage 2.London’s schools were top of the classThe proportion of schools that were judged not to be up to standard varied significantly across the country.Regionally, London’s schools were the least likely to fall below the Government’s new benchmarks, with just one per cent doing so. In the South West and the East Midlands the figure was as high as seven percent.Bedford was the worst performer out of England’s 152 local education authorities with one in five schools falling below the floor standard.Dorset had the second worst record nationally on 18 per cent while at the other end of the scale 35 local authorities didn’t contain a single sub-standard school. The top 1,000 schools have been sorted by first organising the schools according to the percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, and then by the percentage of pupils reaching the higher standard (previously Level 5).53 per cent of schools met the expected standard and five per cent of schools achieved the higher standard in reading, writing and maths.According to analysis by the Telegraph, the top performing primary school in the country is Temple Grafton CofE Primary School in Alcester, Warwickshire, where 100 per cent of pupils met the expected standard and 46 per cent met the higher standard this year.  Primary school performance tables for Key Stage 2 (11-year-old) SATs results have been published today by the Department for Education. They reveal test scores for state primary schools in England and show which schools are meeting the Government’s targets. In 2016, a school will be deemed to be above the floor standard if at least 65 per cent of pupils meet the expected standard (previously Level 4) in reading, writing and mathematics, or if the school satisfies separate pupil progress measures. Have a look through our searchable league table, which reveals the top 1,000 primary schools in England or use our interactive table to search all primary state schools in England.

Free school meal eligibility is still a key divideEligibility for Free School Meals continues to be a key predictor in how well a child will perform at Key Stage 2.Just 35 per cent of FSM pupils achieved the expected standard across reading, writing and maths last year compared to 57 per cent for all other pupils.There is a similar divide when it comes to making progress in individual subjects with the biggest gap coming in reading. Girls did better than boysBoys tend to perform worse than girls in Key Stage 2 assessments and this year’s figures show that this pattern has continued, despite the emphasis shifting to progress made, or value added, rather than purely on attainment.As many as 57 per cent of girls achieve the expected standard – roughly equivalent to a level 4b in the old assessment levels – in reading, writing and mathematics compared to 50 per cent of boys.The gap is larger than that seen in previous years – there was a six percentage point gap for the old expected standard in 2015 and 2014.However, despite their stronger performance overall, girls were found to have made less progress than boys in maths. Those with summer birthdays were less likely to do wellAge plays a surprisingly big role in how well pupils perform at KS2 with those born in September – i.e. the eldest in the class – being far more likely to achieve the expected standard in reading writing and maths.Those with August birthdays – i.e. the youngest in the class – did worst.The reverse is true when it comes to the amount of progress made, however, with younger pupils making larger improvements than their elder peers. NotesSchools with fewer than 6 pupils taking a qualification are not shown in the tables because of the risk of an individual pupil’s results being identified.Our other interactive league tables:A-level school league tables: compare your school’s performanceGCSE school league tables: compare your school’s performanceTop 100 secondary schools by A-level resultsTop 100 secondary schools by GCSE results Those with English as an additional language made big stridesHalf of pupils whose first language is other than English reached the expected standard in all of reading, writing and mathematics, lower than the national average and compared with 54 per cent of pupils whose first language is English.However, pupils with English as an additional language tended to make far better progress than those with English as a first language.Children with English as an additional language made significant leaps in maths and writing and also improved in reading, while their classmates with English as a first language made slightly less progress across the board.last_img read more

Doctor Who Episode 7 Team TARDIS Pops ECommerce Bubble at Kerblam

first_imgStay on target This article contains spoilers for “Kerblam!”, episode seven of Doctor Who season 11.In keeping with this season’s tendency toward political commentary, Sunday’s oddly prescient episode of Doctor Who tackled Amazon online retailers and single-use plastics.Chris Chibnall’s quest toward social justice continued with Pete McTighe’s glaring takedown of big business—in this case, e-commerce giant Kerblam!, a certified 10 percent people company built on the warehouse moon orbiting Kandoka.The Doctor and her companions infiltrate the distribution center after receiving a distress call on a packing slip, tucked inside a Kerblam! parcel delivered to the TARDIS.The stellar Julie Hesmondhalgh as Head of People Judy Maddox (via BBC)There they meet Judy Maddox, Head of People at a majority-robot-run corporation, played by the sublime Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch).(I had the immense pleasure of seeing Hesmondhalgh star in the stunningly intimate “The Greatest Play in the History of the World…” in Edinburgh this August. When I tweeted post-performance that I was so moved I couldn’t praise the actor in the theater bar after, for fear I’d bawl on her, she responded that I “should have come for a cuddle.” I’ve been smitten ever since.)The double-headliner episode also features funnyman Lee Mack (as Dan Cooper), who easily delivered some of the hour’s best jokes—before being bumped off by a mysterious evil force in the Kerblam! depot.Yaz befriends the charming Dan (Lee Mack) before his untimely death (via BBC)Between the laughs, McTighe manages to craft a sinister and suspenseful chapter that takes viewers on a twisty adventure reminiscent of the good old days (by which I mean 2005 to 2017).Despite the IRL dispersal of robots—designed to do everything from monitoring delicate ocean creatures to saving human lives to twerking—Doctor Who‘s android antics can easily veer toward the ludicrous.This week, however, it’s not the cyborgs we have to worry about, but the humans with access to their controls.Leo Flanagan as Charlie the maintenance man: Access to everywhere, noticed by hardly anyone (via BBC)Human Charlie (Leo Flanagan) serves as the adventure’s big bad: a young maintenance man-cum-disgruntled trade unionist with an office crush and a scheme to kill Kerblam! customers in hopes of eroding people’s trust in automation.“Imperfect technology without a conscience,” Charlie explains in a panic. “Machines malfunction, that’s what they do.”“No, mate, that’s what you’re doing: seriously malfunctioning,” Graham says.The Doctor and Graham enlist the help of an old employee (via BBC)Except, the Kerblam! system does have a conscience. And it’s been fighting back against Charlie—taking things so far as to murder love interest Kira to prove a point.Which makes the episode’s moral all the more confusing.AI running business isn’t the problem; how humans use the automated system is. (Especially if you’ve hired a hysterical genius hell bent on changing the world—one bubble-wrap pop at a time.) Until the system retaliates…Still me? (via BBC)Missed episode six of Doctor Who?

HumanSized Penguin Fossils Uncovered in New Zealand

first_img New Zealand’s Giant Hand Sculpture Is the Stuff of NightmaresScientists Unearth Child-Sized Parrot ‘Hercules’ Stay on target Scientists discovered a monster penguin that roamed the Oceanic country some 60 million years ago.Crossvallia waiperensis is one of the world’s oldest known penguin species—and one of the largest.Towering over the modern Emperor penguin—which, at an average 4-feet-tall, is the biggest and heaviest of all living penguins—it weighed up to 176 lbs.Amateur paleontologist Leigh Love found the remains of C. waiparensis last year at the Waipara Greensand in North Canterbury; local fossil collector Al Mannering helped describe them.Canterbury Museum curators Paul Scofield and Vanesa De Pietri, along with Gerald Mayr of the Senckenberg Natural History Museum in Frankfurt, analyzed the bones, which they concluded belong to a previously unknown penguin species.In a paper published this week by Alcheringa: An Australian Journal of Paleontology, the team revealed C. waiparensis‘s closest known relative: fellow Paleocene species Crossvallia unienwillia—IDed from a fossilized partial skeleton found nearly 20 years ago in Antarctica.“When the Crossvallia species were alive, New Zealand and Antarctica were very different from today,” according to Scofield, senior curator of natural history at the museum. “Antarctica was covered in forest and both had much warmer climates.”The leg bones of both Crossvallia species suggest their feet played a greater role in swimming than those of today’s animals. Or that they simply hadn’t yet adapted to standing upright.C. waiparensis is the fifth ancient penguin species described from fossils uncovered at the Waipara Greensand site.“The fossils discovered there have many our understanding of penguin evolution a whole lot clearer,” Mayr said. “There’s more to come, too—more fossils which we think represent new species are still awaiting description.”The fossils of several giant species, including C. waiparensis, will be displayed in an exhibit about prehistoric New Zealand at Canterbury Museum later this year.Giant animals are canon in Kiwi history: Among the colossal eagle, enormous burrowing bat, jumbo moa (nine species of now-extinct flightless bird), and hulking penguins lived the world’s largest parrot.Weighing in around 15 lbs., the 3-foot-tall bird, named Heracles inexpectatus, had a massive beak capable of cracking most food sources (including other fowl).A fossil found near St. Bathans in Central Otago, New Zealand is about the size of the giant “dodo” pigeon of the Mascarene Islands. And, more impressively, twice as big as the adorable (yet critically endangered) kakapo—previously the heaviest known parrot.Hercules is believed to hail from the Miocene era, some 19 million years ago.More on Albino Penguin Makes Its Debut at Poland ZooThese Giant Goliath Frogs Are Excellent ParentsLittle Blue Penguins Stolen in ‘Late-Night Raid’ in New Zealandlast_img read more

Brock Osweiler has been a bust and its time to give Dak

first_imgWhere Colin was Wrong.Chris Peterson has transformed Washington – Colin thought Peterson was a “nice” hire that would make the Huskies respectable.  In his third year Washington looks like the best team in the Pac-12.  Peterson has a roster of his players now, and they’ve been dominant, including a blowout of perennial conference power Stanford. They’re also the youngest team in college football, and don’t appear to be going anywhere, anytime soon. Colin is taking a loss on this one.#Huskies: MYLES GASKIN! Gaskin with a 65-yard TD for the Dawgs. UW up 21-0 with 2:37 left…— Washington Huskies (@huskiesdispatch) October 9, 2016 Where Colin was RightThe Texans signing Brock Osweiler was a bad move – John Elway saw more Osweiler than anyone and passed. That should have set off alarm bells for Houston, but they decided to lock him up long term, sight unseen. Osweiler has been at his worst against the NFL’s best this year. Against the Vikings and the Patriots, he’s completed 51% of his passes and has a dreadful 1 touchdown and 2 picks. He’s not the answer and looks overwhelmed. Colin nailed this one.Osweiler. You mad, Bro? #SKOL— Run_Steve_Run (@steve_runquist) October 9, 2016 Advertisement Where Colin was WrongThe Falcons – Colin wasn’t a fan of the Birds or Dan Quinn, but the Pete Carroll protege has the offense flying, and they’ve beaten quality teams in Carolina, Oakland, and Denver. Their roster matches up well with elite teams and their offense has been dominant. They tailed off after a hot start last year, but his team looks different. Colin was slow to come around but he’s there now. Wrong.1 fav gadget type play. Boot TE Throwback. Falcons set it up all game. Zone and bootlegs. It’s run perfectly. TD to Hooper! ? game plan— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) October 4, 2016 Where Colin was Right.Colin’s AFC predictions – As bad his NFC picks have been, Colin nailed his AFC picks. He had the Patriots, Raiders, Steelers, Chiefs in the Playoffs. All have delivered so far. He also liked the Colts and Bengals, who haven’t been great, but aren’t dead yet.  His biggest AFC miss was predicting Denver without a quarterback would finish 6-10. They still look capable of making a Super Bowl run, even with unproven Trevor Siemian. Still, Colin is calling this right.“Leaving with a smile on our face…tied for first right now, boys. Tied for first!”Check out @coachdelrio‘s locker room victory speech:— OAKLAND RAIDERS (@RAIDERS) October 10, 2016 Every Monday it’s time to hold Colin accountable for his predictions that busted out, and the ones that busted. This week he’s taking a victory lap for taking Vegas to the woodshed, and he’s finally ready to admit that he missed on Dak Prescott.Here’s Where Colin was right, where Colin was wrong through 6 weeks of college and 5 weeks in the NFL.Where Colin was Right.Blowin up the Blazin’ 5  – We have lift off. Uncle Colin was 4-1 on the week and jumped over .500 for the year (14-11). Washington, Buffalo, San Diego and Tennessee all covered. Dallas blew up an otherwise perfect week.

The fewer divas on a roster the better. It’s a quarterback league, running  backs and diva wideouts are unnecessary hood ornaments. Colin was right.WR Dez Bryant (knee) out with injury for the second straight week, but moving significantly better than last week during pregame.— Joe Trahan (@JoeTrahan) October 9, 2016 Where Colin was WrongColin’s NFC predictions – Colin is waiving the white flag on his NFC predictions. He had the Cardinals, Panthers and Giants making the playoffs, that’s not working out so great. He predicted the Falcons and Cowboys would be under .500 and they’re both sitting at 4-1. Colin is manning up and calling this wrong.Not sure how much, if anything, this adds, but here’s a side-by-side of the Cam Newton goal line hits – NO and ATL— Black & Blue Review (@BlackBlueReview) October 3, 2016 Where Colin was WrongDak Prescott has been impressive – Colin thought the 4th rounder out of Miss St would end up as a tight end. He hasn’t done much in terms of stats, but Colin loves his football IQ, composure and command of the huddle. He hasn’t looked overwhelmed even as a rookie. Prescott is always under control and feels and plays like a veteran. He also doesn’t make the big mistake, which has allowed the Cowboys to stay in games and have a chance to win. Colin would still go with Romo when he’s healthy, but he’s giving Prescott his due. Colin was wrong.last_img read more

How to break it to your kids that Santa Claus isnt real

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Many of us parents must have come to a point where we need to tell our children that Santa Claus is not real. But how do we do this without breaking their tiny hearts?Well, here are 3 ideas to help you with this predicament:1- Straight out: Okay, maybe not the best solution, as it will inevitably end up with crying, shouting or tantrums.But if it’s been long enough, maybe your child will just take it in his stride. Reassure your child that he is still, in fact, going to receive presents. Once his short attention span takes him back to the television, you are free to sigh with relief.2- Ask what your child believes in: Just because the child is asking questions doesn’t necessarily mean he or she is emotionally ready to believe the truth. Asking, “Well, what do you think?” will give you an idea of where the child is both emotionally and cognitively. If the child still believes in Santa, despite any outside doubts, it’s not time yet. 3- Explain that Santa embodies the real spirit of Christmas: Something like this: “Santa Claus is a magical spirit that lives inside of everyone who believes in him. He is real only for as long as you believe he is real and not for one moment longer. When your friends tell you that Santa is not real, they are correct. He isn’t real for them anymore.  You can keep Santa alive in your heart for as long as you want to do so.” Or simply state: “We are all Santa”, and discuss the times you do nice things for people throughout the year, expecting nothing in return.DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter  why not join us there?last_img read more
