KS2 SATs Results

Please find below a summary of the attainment of pupils from Year 6 for 2018 -19. This was the last year group to take the SATs before COVID hit. 

Every year, pupils complete baseline assessments on entering Year 3 at Connaught Junior School and progress is measured from there, as well as from infant school data. As a junior school, it is important for us to baseline our children in Year 3 as we take from many infant schools. The difficulties faced by junior schools in terms of measuring progress is noted on the Department for Education Performance tables website.

A link to the Department for Education Performance Tables is below.

The results in the table above are put alongside the national average. Connaught exceeds the national average in very nearly every subject except Maths Greater Depth where it matches the national average, and SPaG Greater Depth (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) where we were a few percent below.

 

This table below shows the KS2 SATs results over time. As a school, whilst we challenge the children to achieve their best, we continue to teach all other subjects (including cookery, pottery, Forest School and all the foundation subjects) so that the children in Year 6 still benefit from a creative curriculum and enjoy their last year in primary school.

*The Year 6 Leavers in 2021 took past SATs papers under test conditions and came up with impressive results, especially after spending so much time out of school. This is not published data as officially the SATs did not take place in 2020 or 2021.
