Performance Data

The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages.  We are delighted with the excellent results across the school.  They are a tribute to the children and staff.


Early Years Foundation Stage

77% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years Framework.  This is above the local authority average of 75% and the national average of 72%.

A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

Year One Phonics Screening

93%  of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonics Screening Test.  This is above the national average of 83% and also above the local authority average of 85%.

Key Stage One

This is the third year of the revised testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2.  These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014.  For more information, please see the leaflet Information for Parents from the Standards and Testing Agency.

At the end of KS1 (Year 2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science.  National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the current measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Attainment in Year 2 was very good in 2018.  The school’s performance was above the national average in every subject area at the Expected Standard.

Key Stage Two

Children in Year 6 are also assessed on their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum.  The curriculum introduced in 2014 provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.

The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard.  The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80.

Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for their age
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum

In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a high standard.  Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.  Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths.  For further information, please see the leaflet Information for Parents from the Standards and Testing Agency.

Our results, are once again, extremely pleasing.  St Mary Magdalene pupils performed above the national average in all subject areas at the expected standard. Our attainment is also above local authority averages in the majority of areas at the expected standard and at greater depth.
