In Reception there were 61 pupils in the academic year (2018-19) of whom 47 achieved a good level of development by the end of May 2019, which was 77.04% of the reception pupils. ‘A good level of development’ indicates that pupils were achieving at least the expected level (2 or 3) within all the following areas of learning: communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy and mathematics.
Nationally, only 71.8% of pupils achieved a good level of development during the academic year 2018-2019, which puts Gatehouse 5.24% ahead of the national average score.
The average point score for pupils at Gatehouse (based upon a range of 1 to 3) is 2.08.
