Pupil Achievement & Standards

We strive to support our pupils in achieving the highest possible standards. A school's performance is measured by overall achievement of its pupils. Achievement is a combination of both pupils' attainment (in relation to age-related expectations) and progress (how far they move from their personal starting point).

We are proud of the standards that pupils at St Mary's achieve. By the end of Year 6 (end of Key Stage 2) the attainment of our children, and their progress, are consistently 'significantly above' national average values. Over the past four years the progress made by pupils at St Mary's is in-line with the top 15% of schools nationally and has been in  the top 5% of schools  for three out of the last four years!

Statutory Assessment Outcomes for 2016

End of Key Stage 2 (Year 6)

2016 is the first time that Year 6 pupils were tested/ assessed against the assessment criteria for the 2014 National Curriculum. Pupil attainment is recorded in relation to the new ‘expected standard’ for the end of Key Stage 2. Pupils sit tests in reading, GPS (Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling) and maths; these tests produce a ‘scaled score’ (with 100 representing the ‘expected standard’) and are used to inform the Teacher Assessment judgement made for each pupil. Pupils’ writing attainment is based upon Teacher Assessment and pupils are required to meet all the assessment criteria in order to be judged as meeting the standard. A higher standard ‘greater depth’ assessment can be awarded in writing. This year school judgements were moderated, and validated, by the Gloucestershire Local Authority.
