Create – Equip -Partner

At St. Michael’s we are extremely proud of our school’s high academic achievements.

We firmly hold the belief that we DO NOT teach to the tests, rather we teach the National Curriculum to a very high standard and we nurture pupils throughout their primary years. The results indicated in the links below illustrate how well our children have worked and embraced the learning opportunities at our school and what they have achieved.

We are very proud of all of the children’s progress and that we cater for the more able as well as those children who may find learning more challenging.

Please note, due to COVID-19 Coronavirus, 2020 assessments were cancelled and so the 2019 information remains our last assessment cycle information.

SATs 2019.

We are thrilled to announce that this year, our Year 6 children once again have attained very highly and made superb progress to outperform the national averages for the end of Key Stage 2.

81% of children left at the Expected Standard at the end of Key Stage 2 in Reading, Writing and Maths Combined – this was against 65% nationally.

Please see the link below for percentages of children achieving the Expected and Higher Standards in Reading Writing and Maths

Please find a copy of the end of Key Stage Results below (previous years for comparison).

We are so proud of our very high 2019 results in comparison to the national averages.

SATS -An Overview of Scaled Scores

As you may already be aware, there was a new format to the SATs and children are now given an ‘outcome’ of working at or below the expected standard. Children are given a ‘raw score’ for each test that is then converted to a ‘scaled score’. If a child has achieved a scaled score of 100 or more, they are deemed to be working ‘At the Expected Standard’.

The results reflect the positive progress pupils have made at all levels of expectations and is a reflection of the aspirations both staff and pupils have in supporting their learning.
