Performance Results

Key Stage Two

In 2016, children in Year 6 took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements.  Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum was assessed.  This curriculum provides a 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 judgments 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 

Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling (SPAG) and maths.  For further information, please see the Information for parents KS2 leaflet from the Standards and Testing Agency. 

Our results are, once again, extremely pleasing. Once again, St. John’s pupils performed well above the national average in all subject areas

Key Stage One

This is the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2.  These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014.  Therefore, results cannot be compared with previous years.  For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents from the Standards and Testing Agency.

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing and maths.  National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgments.

St John’s performance was well above the national average in every subject. 

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new 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
