Headline Data - a summary

At St Day and Carharrack, we value every child's achievements across the entire curriculum however big or small. It is also a duty of ours to prepare the children for statutory assessments throughout their primary school journey in readiness for their next step in education.

For those children who are able to, it is a requirement for them to be assessed across Reading, Writing, Maths and SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) at certain key points.

The statutory expectations:

  • Teacher assessment of attainment at the end of EYFS (this is known as achieving a 'Good Level of Development')
  • Phonics Screening Check at the end of Year 1
  • Statutory Assessment Tests at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2)
  • Multiplication Tables Check at the end of Year 4
  • Statutory Assessment Tests at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6)

The Headline Summary Data document below show our attainment results across these assessments from 2018 to 2023. They are a snapshot of the whole cohort and we continue to be proud of each individual and the progress they make on their individual learning journeys through school. 

For more information regarding assessment, please see the school's  'Assessment' policy. 



Pupils included in the 2021/22 school, college and multi-academy trust (MAT) performance measures will have had uneven disruption to their learning.

We, therefore, recommend not making direct comparisons between schools/colleges or MATs, or with data from previous years. Comparisons with local and national averages can be made cautiously to put an individual school/college or MAT’s results into context.

There are other factors that will also make direct comparisons difficult:

  • Several changes were made to exams and grading. These include advanced notice of exam topics and GCSE, AS and A level grading being based around a midpoint between 2021 and pre-pandemic outcomes.
  • Changes were also made to the way school and college (and therefore also Multi Academy Trust) performance measures were calculated. Results achieved between January 2020 and August 2021 by pupils included in this year’s measures are not included in the calculations.

The individual school, college and MAT data should be used with caution. It reflects a school/college or MAT’s results in 2021/22 but cannot provide information about the factors which may have influenced these results.

When forming a view of how well the school/college or MAT is doing, you should consider a range of different information sources, for example, discussing with the school or college directly, using school or college websites, reading Ofsted reports, and seeking views of friends, and family.
