2018 to 2019


Age related Expected Standard

One measure which the DFE uses is the percentage of pupils attaining Age Related Expectations (the broad, nationally expected level for 11 year olds) or more by the end of Year 6 in Reading, Writing and Maths.

KS2 Pupils Achieving the Expected Standard 

  • Reading: Expected 69% (national: 73%)
  • Writing: Expected 90% (national: 78%)
  • Maths: Expected 76% (national: 79%)
  • Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: Expected 79% (national 78%)
  • Reading, Writing and Maths combined: Expected: 62% (national 65%)

At St Mary's CE Primary School, we pride ourselves on making sure higher attaining pupils are provided with lots of challenge. 

  • Reading: 34% (national 27%)
  • Writing: 41% (national 20%)
  • Maths: 28% (national 27%)
  • Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: 45% (national 36%)
  • Reading, Writing, Maths combined: 24% (national 11%)

Average Scaled Score

  • Reading 104.7 (national 104.4)
  • Maths 104 (national 105)
  • Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling 107.4 (national 106.3)


Many people would argue that progress is the most important measure as it truly reflects the quality of teaching and learning, regardless of pupils' starting points. Progress is typically measured from Year 2 (the end of Key Stage 1) to Year 6 (the end of KS2).

At St Marys CE Primary School data analysis shows that the children's progress is well above the national floor standards:

Reading: 0.33
Writing: 3.41 
Maths: -1.08 

Department for Education Recognition 2018

I am delighted to announce that St Mary's Primary School received a letter from The Secretary of State for Education - Damian Hinds MP; as well as the Minister for School Standards Nick Gibb MP. 

This was to congratulate the school on our writing achievements in 2018 at the end of KS2, where 100% achieved the expected standard. Asa result of this, the standard we achieved in writing placed St Mary's in the top 1% nationally. 

I would like to to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all the staff, pupils, parents and Governors for this collective success. Without this excellent partnership these achievements would not be possible.
