School results: How is St Mary's Bentworth CE Primary School performing?
Are our pupils equipped for the next stage in their life?
We believe that there is a great deal more to this question than the data below. Behind this data, are pupils who can sing beautifully; who ask amazing questions that make you look at a topic completely differently; who seek out challenge and conflict to think carefully about their own values; who can work as a team; have excellent skills in a range of sports; who can win and lose with grace and pride; who care for others sensitively and with love - my list could go on......
However, we do know that they must feel confident and comfortable in a literate and numerate world which is why this data is very important as well. It is part of a bigger picture but we are proud of our results.......but we are primarily proud of our pupils for being individuals who show love, respect and belong to their local, national and global communities.
The data below seems out of date and it is. This is due to the COVID pandemic and the removal of external testing for 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. Please do get in contact with me through the school office as I would be very happy to talk through our data history and share the letters of congratulations from Secretary of State about our English results!

Key Stage 2 SATS Results 2016
The new challenging curriculum has been tested for the first time and I am delighted to share our results with you. I am very proud of our wonderful pupils and the superb team that inspired these results. A big thank you must also go the parents for all their support- it makes such a difference.
These figures are analysed on an individual basis as well as at cohort level (e.g. gender) enable our school team to improve further but also to celebrate the many successes. Please do contact the school office should you have any queries- they will find the right person to answer any questions.
The 2016 key stage 2 assessments are the first which assess the new, more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. New tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment have been introduced to reflect the revised curriculum. Results are no longer reported as levels, and test results are represented as scaled scores and teacher assessments based on the standards in the interim framework. Below is a summary of the provisional outcomes for our school in comparison to the provisional national figures.

Interpreting a school’s progress scores
A school’s progress scores in English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as the average of its pupils’ subject progress scores. These scores give an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the school made above or below average progress in a subject compared with pupils with similar starting points in other schools.
Individual pupil level progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score will be zero.
A school’s progress scores for English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.
• A score of 0 means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
• A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
• A negative score would mean pupils in this school on average do worse at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
