School Performance

On this page you can review how well our children have performed over the last couple of years.

The information reflects the school performance at particular points in a child's journey through their seven years at St John's. All children and groups of children are different. We have high expectations of all our children and support them to reach their potential in all subjects. 

Teaching staff regularly assess the children judging their progress towards end of year expectations.


When children first enter school teachers assess a child's competency against age related expectations. This is sometimes referred to as a 'baseline assessment'.

Throughout their first year in school children are assessed on a daily basis through close observations of their actions and work.

At the end of the year parents will receive report as to whether their child has reached a good level of development in key areas of learning.

Year 1

A key assessment in this year group is the phonics screening check. This is a test to judge whether a child has grasped basic phonic skills.

Year 2

The school uses tests and teachers assessment to judge whether a child is working below, at or beyond the expected standard in reading, writing and maths.

Year 6 SATs

In May the children take a reading, maths and spelling, grammar and punctuation test. The teacher will make an assessment of the child's writing ability.
