The DfE produce School Performance Tables for schools in England. The website is http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance
From this page, by selecting PRIMARY SCHOOLS, then by inserting the school postcode (SR3 4BB) and selecting "schools in 5 miles radius" the website will display a wide range of information about This School's performance and many schools in the City of Sunderland area. The webpages show DfE English School performance tables for the last three years.

School Performance 2019
In Thorney Close Primary School assessment takes many forms. Assessment is an integral part of every lesson and used to identify progress and understanding. At the end of every term all children in school are assessed and their level of learning recorded. These levels are analysed by staff and interventions for individuals or small groups to support children further are put into place if required.
During the summer term statutory assessments are completed for children in Year 2 and Year 6, phonics testing for children in Year 1 and Early Years Foundation Stage Profile for Reception children. Children in Years 3, 4 and 5 do not have statutory tests in the Summer Term. We do termly assessments in all year groups to measure progress and target teaching.
End of Reception Year- Early Years Foundation Stage
Staff observations help practitioners to assess whether a child has reached a Good Level of Development (GLD). This information is shared with parents at the end of the summer term.
Year 1 Phonics test
Year 1 children are assessed to see if they have reached an appropriate level in phonics. This is a test administered by a teacher working with one child at a time. If a child does not achieve this in Year 1 it is repeated in Year 2. This information is shared with parents at the end of the summer term.
End of Year 2- Key Stage 1
In Year 2 children’s achievements are assessed through teacher assessment supported through tests in reading, writing and mathematics. This information is shared with parents at the end of the summer term.
End of Year 6- Key Stage 2
Children’s achievements are assessed through externally and internally marked tests covering maths, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. This information is shared with parents at the end of the summer term.
