Progress and achievement at St Joseph’s

Pupil achievement is judged in two ways:

  1. Attainment – this refers to whether a pupil is working ‘at the expected level’ or ‘working at greater depth’
  2. Progress – this refers to how well pupils have progressed in their learning from their starting point

At St Joseph’s, we believe that all pupils should make good or better progress in their learning, every lesson. Teacher evaluations, together with formal assessments, inform pupil attainment grades. To ensure that the collection of data is not just an outcome of a process, we use all school assessments and data to identify pupils’ starting points, learning gaps and next steps. This in turn informs the planning and preparation of pupils’ lessons to ensure that every child makes good progress across the curriculum.


Progress and results 2019/2020

As a result of the national lockdown, formal assessment in primary schools for the academic year 2019/2020 was cancelled.

The cancellation applied to the end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 assessments (including tests and teacher assessment); phonics screening check; multiplication tables check; science sampling tests; and the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.

At St Joseph’s the formal assessment for 2020/2021 will take place in line with current Government guidance.
