Scottish Government has collated attainment data from schools across Scotland. This data shows attainment at the end of P1, P4, P7 and S3 based on teacher’s judgements, supported by moderation. The data can be accessed here. On the page, you can select the latest year (2016/17), the local authority (Perth and Kinross) and the school (St John’s RC Academy).
In future years, teacher’s judgements will be supported by the Scottish National Standardised Assessments. Parents and Carers can find out more about these assessments and how teachers assess progress here. Read more
The information presented here is designed to give parents a view of how schools are meeting the challenges facing Scottish education today:
- equipping children and young people with the skills, experience and attitudes needed in the 21st century,
- raising attainment for all, and
- ensuring every child has the same opportunity to succeed.
Parents, carers and SQA candidates have been made aware of the changes to the SQA appeals system over the course of the past two years. In short, the old appeals system has changed to a ‘results service’. This service is very different from what was previously in place. For clarity, the school’s policy is outlined here. This policy reflects the guidance offered by the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
