St John's Catholic

Primary School

Ofsted and Assessment Results

'Pupils thrive personally as well as academically because of the outstanding range of deeply engaging experiences provided by the school, which help them learn about the world around them and develop individual talents. Pupils are encouraged from an early stage to develop their thinking skills and become independent in their learning. Teaching is of a consistently high quality because teachers have very high expectations of all pupils. They know pupils exceptionally well and set them challenging work which is adapted to meet the needs and interests of different pupils. Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes to school are outstanding.'

2013 Ofsted Report


‘St John’s is an outstanding Catholic School, where the dedication and drive of the headteacher, staff and governors leads to continuous improvement and excellent outcomes for all pupils.’

‘There is a calm and welcoming atmosphere and the pupils demonstrate this in interactions with each other, staff and visitors; consequently, their behaviour is outstanding. The pupils live out their one school rule of ‘Love One Another’ and this is evident with all groups of pupils.’

‘The whole school community has a strong sense of belonging to the Catholic faith. The staff work very effectively to ensure that Christ is at the centre of all they do.’

‘Teaching is outstanding and is effective in enthusing pupils and ensuring that they learn extremely well.’

‘The school deploys support staff very effectively and they regularly take part in the teaching of lessons. They make a significant contribution to the learning and progress of these pupils.’

‘Standards of attainment in RE are excellent… all pupils… make excellent progress’

‘Parents appreciate the work of the school, as shown in the parents’ questionnaires… They state that their children are happy in school and they are happy with the provision of RE in the school.’

Assessment Results

The government has not published KS2 school level data for the 2021-22 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018-19 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.


The National Curriculum provides programmes of study for children in each subject. These set out what each child in a particular year group or Key Stage should know, understand and be able to do. In class, the teachers assess children's work throughout each term, and in the summer term will assess using more formal tests.  


All children in Reception class are assessed on entry using a Baseline Assessment, and again at the end of the foundation stage. Children in the summer term of Y1 take part in a national Phonics Screening Test. Pupils in Year 2 and Year 6 sit end of Key Stage National Curriculum Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs). Pupils in Y4 take part in the national multiplication screening test.


Assessments, whether summative or formative, check if children are in line with age related expectations from the National Curriculum.
