Since the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum were introduced the curricula for all children have been standardised throughout the country. However not all schools are the same. Literacy and Numeracy have a high profile in our school, as they are a medium through which children access other areas of the curriculum. However this is not at the expense of a wide range of other subjects and we provide a broad and balanced experience, ensuring that there is continuity as the children move from one class to another.
The children work in a variety of groupings, as a class, in small groups or as individuals, depending on the task involved.
National Curriculum Assessments, Key Stage 1 (SAT Results)
14 children took these assessments in May 2019. The table below shows a summary of the National Curriculum Teacher Assessment Results of pupils in the school and nationally as a percentage of those eligible for assessment.
St Michael’s results are above national and Surrey averages for 2018 in reading and writing. Many of our children exceed national expectations (working at greater depth) in reading, writing and maths.
|Working at greater depth – GDS||School 43%||School 36 %||School 29%|
|Working at greater depth – GDS||National 25%||National 15%||National 22%|

In the Foundation Stage (Year R) in 2019, 84% of our children achieved a Good Level of Development which is above the National average 2019 (71.8%).
In Year 1 2019, 94% of our children achieved the phonics standard. This data is significantly higher than in the previous year and matches our data from 2017, showing very good phonics outcomes.
By the end of Year 2 93% of our children achieved the phonics screening test. This is in line with the National level.
