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  above national average values and pupils, typically, make very good relative progress.

 Statutory Assessment Outcomes for 2019

End of Key Stage 2 (Year 6)

Year 6 pupils are tested/ assessed against the assessment criteria for the 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 110+ representing a 'High Score'). 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.

Difference from national : Sig+ (9th percentile*) 

KS2 progress based on Average scaled score (RE/MA): +2.6 (NA 0)      

  Difference from national: Sig+ (13th percentile*)

% Expected Standard+ (RE/WR/MA): (81%) (NA 65%)            

Difference from national: In-line (16th percentile*)

KS2 progress based on % Expected Standard+: +11% (NA 0)   

Difference from national: In-line (18th percentile*)

*FFT Percentile rank refers to relative position to all school nationally. E.g. 20th percentile = top 20% of schools  / 80th percentile = bottom 20% of schools.

Sig+ = statistically significantly above national values.


End of Key Stage 1 (Year 2)

Year 2 pupils are tested /assessed against the assessment criteria for the National Curriculum. Pupil attainment is recorded in relation to the new ‘expected standard’ for the end of Key Stage 1. Pupils sit tests in reading, GPS (Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling) and maths; these tests produce a ‘scaled score’ (with 100 representing the ‘expected standard’). The outcomes of the test are not reported to the DFE this year but are used to inform the Teacher Assessment judgement made for each pupil.
