Key Stage Two - Results Summary 2021
KS2 Data 2022
- Pupils at St Mary's achieve higher in Reading than the Local Authority (LA) average and the National Average - including at the Higher Standard
- Pupils at St Mary's achieved higher in Maths than the LA and inline with National - more pupils at St Mary's achieved the Higher standard in Maths than the LA or National
- Pupils writing at St Mary's was impacted by covid and lockdowns. Their composition and effect from their high standard of reading was present in their writing. Their spelling and grammar from previous year groups where they were not at school was identified as the reason children's writing could not be teacher assessed at meeting expected standard.
- Writing is not a standard test like the other subjects. Writing is teacher assessed. Our judgements were moderated and found to be accurate. 25% of school's writing is moderated externally each year. This impacts on results. Teacher judgements are often lowered.
- Because of this we have employed one of our existing teachers to be a 'School Led-Tutor'. This is funded 60% by the government for those children who may not be quite where expected in the year of their SATs, to ensure their end of primary assessments are not lower than expected due to 2 years of unsettled schooling.
EYFS Data 2022
- Our EYFS data shows the prime and specific areas of learning.
- Our data should be read with the caveat that this cohort's pre school education was disrupted for 2 years.
- Our data tells us children were not able to say and write a sentence independently, using their phonics knowledge for spelling, without any adult input.
- 0% were on track on entry to school for writing.
- We worked on fine motor skills so that children could physically write and hold a pencil.
- Because of this we are now working with pupils to ensure they can now write a sentence that they have made up and spell the words correctly using their phonics, using pre and post teaching and ensuring the learning environment promotes writing for a purpose and joy.
KS1 Data 2022
- Our KS1 data tells us pupils achieved higher than the Local Authority Average in Mathematics.
- Our KS1 data tells us our reading is in line with the LA Average.
- Our KS1 data tells us that pupils writing was not in line with the LA average. This is because children did not write over a sustained period, showing stamina for writing.
- Because of this, children will have increased opportunities to write and feel more confident now they have the phonics knowledge to be able to encode.
Phonics Data Year 1
- This data tells us that most children achieved a higher score than the pass score of 32.
- This data tells us 7 children did not reach the threshold of 32.
- Because of this we will provide opportunities to catch up through the Year 2 curriculum and short, frequent interventions.
As we have had 2 years without a full time education, we cannot measure the progress objectively.
Pupils are 'meeting the expected standard' if they achieve a 'scaled score' of 100 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teacher assesses them as 'working at the expected standard' or better in writing.
Average score in reading
This score is known as the reading 'scaled score'. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The higher standard is 110 or more (Greater Depth: GD).
Average score in maths
This score is known as the maths 'scaled score'. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The higher standard is 110 or more.
Percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard
Pupils are 'achieving at a higher standard' if they achieve a 'scaled score' of 110 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teacher assesses them as 'working at a greater depth (GD) within the expected standard' in writing. This standard was set for the first time in 2016 by the Department for Education to provide information about pupils across England achieving in the top 5%.
