St Barnabas pupils make very good academic progress and achieve very well compared to their peers nationally.
We focus on pupils' attainment and progress from different starting points.
We aim for as many pupils as possible to meet age-related expectations based on the National Curriculum by the end of each year group. Many pupils will meet these expectations during the school year and will start to apply their learning in different ways to work at greater depth.
Every child is unique, each with their own abilities. We track progress from each pupil's starting point:
- Reception, from an initial assessment when pupils start school
- Year 1 and Year 2, from the end of Reception based on the 'good level of development' judgement
- Years 3-6, from the end of Year 2 (key-stage 1) based on National Curriculum levels or assessment against national standards.
Schools must publish end of key-stage 2 results.
Parents are able to compare Key Stage 2 results from a number of schools by exploring the
School Performance Tables on the Department for Education website.
