Performance Data

At the end of a Key Stage children are judged to be either working at the expected standard or not. Some children may be judged to be working above the expected standard.

At KS1 assessment is based on the class teacher’s assessment of the children’s ability. At KS2 children’s raw test scores are converted to a scaled score, where 100 is the national expectation.

* For a pupil to achieve the expected standard in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 100+ in the corresponding tests.

* For a pupil to be working at greater depth in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 110+ in the corresponding tests.

The average scaled score at St James CE Academy for reading  is 107
The average scaled score at St James CE Academy for maths  is 106
The average scaled score at St James CE Academy for SPAG  is 109

* Average progress made in KS2

National average progress is always 0. Schools that make less progress receive a negative number rating, schools that make more progress receive a positive rating.

Average progress in reading  2.8
Average progress in writing  2.9
