Achievement, Results and Standards
We consider an education at St. Michael's to be a seven year journey. During this seven year journey, children undergo a series of assessments along the way so that we can check they are making good progress. Click on the tabs to the left to see current and previous year's results.
At the end of Reception, children's progress against the Early Years curriculum is assessed.
In Year One, their ability to recognise and use phonics is assessed during the national Phonics Screening Test
In Year Two, over the course of about a month, children take English and Maths test (SATS). These tests, along with the regular teacher assessment that takes place continually, result in an overall description as follows
- Working towards expectations
- Good level of development
- Exceeding expectations
In Year Four, their knowledge and application of the multiplication table is assessed.
In Year Six, they take the KS2 SATS in maths and English. Although teacher assessments are recorded and fed back to parents, the test scores are published independently of teacher assessments.
- The Expected Standard is a scaled score of 100 or more achieved in Reading, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, and Maths tests.
- The Higher standard is a scaled score of 110 or more. Writing at the Expected and Higher standard refers to teacher assessments.
