Inspiring all to reach their potential

Progress and Attainment

Progress and Attainment


At the end of each Key Stage, pupils are assessed against the criteria set by The National Curriculum. For the Reception year and at the end of Year 2, this is based on teacher assessment. For the end of Year 6, pupils are assessed both through teacher assessment and the statutory Standardised Tests. The school do not have any published KS2 data as 2020-2021 is the cohort of Year 6 pupils. 



11+ Transfer Testing


The transfer test for secondary school placements takes place in November 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The protocols for the testing clearly state that schools may not invite or accommodate services aimed at coaching children about the contents of the test on the school premises. As the test is not statutory and is not taken by all pupils, the results do not represent the attainment or progress of pupils at The Mary Towerton School and therefore cannot be used as a performance indicator for the school. 


The key skills tested in the Secondary Transfer Test are however, age appropriate skills that are an integral part of the National Curriculum (i.e. comprehension, understanding word meanings and spelling, solving mathematical problems).
