At All Saints Catholic School, we have enjoyed increasing success with results. Our progress 8 score in 2019 has deemed our school to be 'well above average' for pupil progress.
We are well above the local authority and national average for attainment 8. This is the measure which shows how well pupils have performed in up to eight end of key stage four results.
As well as this, we have massively increased the uptake of pupils who are completing the English baccalaureate (EBacc) at GCSE. This figure has risen to up to 72% of pupils and is continuously increasing.
Our success is due to the hard work and dedication of our team of staff and pupils. We also find that parental engagement in pupil progress yields great success. Our pastorally inclusive approach to education ensures that no child is left behind and we have devised strategies to support all pupils regardless of their prior attainment. We ensure that quality-first teaching and regular formative assessment are the bedrock of our success. Teachers regularly 'drop everything and check' to ensure that no child is left unaided in lessons. We have a strong literacy focus and pupils spend time reading every single day.
Overall, we have created a learning environment which places the emphasis on being successful through our endeavours. A truly academically excellent school community which has love of God and neighbour at its heart.
Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, most exams and assessments did not take place in the 2019 to 2020, or 2020 to 2021 academic years. The government also announced that it would not publish school or college level results data on compare school and college performance (also commonly referred to as school and college performance tables) in autumn 2020 or autumn 2021, and that this data would not be used to hold schools and colleges to account. We have also made clear that results data from 2020, and the 2020 to 2021 academic year will not be used in school and college level performance measures in future years. We have set out further information on school and college accountability for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.
We look forward to the publishing of public results data for the year 2021-22 and a continuation of our success.
