Key Stage 2 SATs Results 2019 

 

I would like to share the results of this year’s SATs with you. As you can see in the table below they are the best results we have achieved for three years. The current Year 6 children have worked incredibly hard and showed great determination and perseverance. They are a credit to their families, themselves and St Mary’s and we are very proud of them.

The teaching and support staff have also worked very hard and have been hugely supportive to these pupils and given them lots of encouragement so that they can truly “Achieve and Succeed”. 

Please find below our most recent Ofsted reports and relevant information from the Department for Education Performance Tables. 

Quote from the Ofsted Report 2006

The school provides a very high quality of education and care. The staff expect the very best of every pupil and there is a very caring atmosphere in which everyone knows they really matter. The teaching is of an outstanding quality overall and pupils enjoy learning”.

 

Quote from the Ofsted Report 2009

“The school’s commitment for every child to succeed and flourish is well and truly met. Parents are delighted with every aspect of the school and the exceptional outcomes it achieves for their children”.

 

Quote from the Ofsted Report 2012

“This is an outstanding school. Pupils are very happy and secure because staff provide excellent care within a highly supportive family-type ethos based on strong moral values. Parents and carers are highly supportive of the school’s work. Pupils make rapid and sustained progress because excellent teaching inspires and motivates them and the outstanding curriculum provides many memorable experiences. There is no complacency and leaders are keen to increase the proportion of outstanding teaching by finding even more ways to share best practice across the school and to improve access to exciting outdoor areas for the youngest children. The outstanding teaching and curriculum ensure that pupils are keen, independent learners with strong basic literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology skills. Consequently, pupils are very well prepared for secondary education. Children in the Reception Year make excellent progress in a highly stimulating environment”.

 

Quote from the Denominational Inspection Report (Section 48) 2012

“St Mary’s is an outstanding Catholic school, where the mission and ethos of Catholic Education are at the heart of all that school does. There is a very strong sense of community in the school. Staff, pupils and governors are justifiably proud of the relationships, dedication and commitment to the shared vision they have for their school. Pupils embrace the Catholic mission and are keen to participate in the Catholic life of the school. Pupils make excellent progress as they journey through the school developing knowledge, understanding and skills at every stage. The pupils are enthusiastic about their learning and are offered a wide variety of learning experiences in Religious Education (RE). There is a rigour and thoroughness to everything that the school does”.
