Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables. Please note that these performance measures are not current.
Schools are not required to publish exam and assessment results from the 2019 to 2020 academic year - these have not been published as performance measures by the Secretary of State.

School Performance Tables
At St Mary's Primary School we follow the national statutory assessment system at the end of Key Stage 1 which reports teacher’s assessment of pupil’s attainment as they exit Year 2. Teachers use their own professional knowledge of the children based on everyday class work, in addition to government tests (commonly known as SATs, issued by the Standards and Testing Agency), to make these assessments.
One of the features of the new National Curriculum is that it no longer uses a system of numbered ‘levels’ to describe children’s attainment. When we discuss your child’s attainment with you, either in meetings or written reports, we will no longer be reporting levels, as these no longer have any relevance to the curriculum. Instead we will refer to your child’s current level of attainment using phrases such as:
We will also comment on whether your child has made good progress over the year, and give details of any specific areas of the curriculum where he/she has achieved well, and any areas where further development or support is needed.
Parents are invited into school to discuss their child's progress and attainment in both the Autumn and Spring terms at Parent Consultation Evening; an end of year written Report is sent home in the Summer Term. Throughout the year, parents are welcome to make an appointment to speak to their child's class teacher if they have any queries or concerns regarding their learning.

This is an online questionnaire that can be found here. It is a key source of information that Ofsted use when inspecting and grading schools, and therefore your engagement with it is important. At St. Mary's we actively encourage parents and carers to share their views of the school. If you have not previously used this, it only takes a couple of minutes to register and then there are 12 questions to answer. If it is more than a year since you last completed a Parent View questionnaire, we would be grateful if you could complete another one so that your opinions can be included as part of this year’s data. Each parent can register to complete a questionnaire.
