Ofsted & Performance Data

School Performance

We are proud of our pupils' achievements and the progress they make whilst with us.

The 2017-2018 academic year saw our third cohort of Year 6 pupils take the national tests for 11 year olds.  Results this year continued our upward trend and were the best results the school has achieved so far - a testament to the hard work, dedication and love from all involved.  Once again, we couldn't have been prouder of the way our pupils conducted themselves.  They took everything in their stride knowing they had worked hard, were well prepared and proud of their achievements since joining our school family - many of whom had only been with us for a very short time.

Below is a summary of our official school results and comparisons with other schools. More information can also be found in the DfE Performance Tables and OfSTED reports.

National and Local Comparisons

Reading

St. Michael’s was above the Peterborough average for attainment (the standards reached) and in line with the National average. The average scaled score for our pupils was 104 (with 100 being the expected standard). Provisional progress measures show that we were in line with National averages.

Writing (including Punctuation, Grammar and Spelling)

Writing is based on teacher assessment and the judgement was made after internal moderation and external moderation sessions with other colleagues within Peterborough. St. Michael’s was slightly above National Averages.

In English, Punctuation, Grammar and Spelling, St. Michael’s was slightly above the National Average.

Mathematics

St. Michael’s was well above both the Peterborough and National Averages. The average scaled score for our pupils was 107 (with 100 being the expected standard). Provisional progress measures show that we were above both the Peterborough and National Averages.

Combined

St. Michael’s was above the National Average.

We were above the DfE floor targets for both progress measures and combined attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths - currently set at 65%.

National and Local Comparisons

Phonics results in 2018 were in line the National Averages.

‘Letters and Sounds’ forms the core of the phonics teaching and progression. Jolly Phonics supplements the resources used in the Early Years.  Phonics is taught daily and both Teachers and Teaching Assistants are well trained as phonics has previously been an area of focus for the school.

EYFS Results for 2018

Pupils are deemed to have reached a good level of development at the end of the EYFS (Reception Year) if they have achieved at least the expected level in the early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language).

Good Level of Development (GLD) 72%

* Percentage of pupils reaching the required standard.

National and Local Comparisons

Baseline assessments, which measure children's attainment on entry to our school, show that a large number start school below the levels expected for their age.

However, by the end of their first year at St Michael’s, the number of children who have reached age expectations has been in line with the Peterborough averages for the past few years.  In 2018, we were slightly above the National Average.
