Priory: SATs and streaming

Does Priory take much notice of SATs results or do they retest once Yr7 pupils settle in?
Also does Priory stream it's Yr 7 pupils? ie lump all the boffins together and the less able one togethers?

1. yes - it's the point from which they have to measure improvement.
2. No, no streaming anymore.
Plus they let kids smoke in a corner of the playground, don't even bother stopping them anymore despite repeated requests from several parents direct to head.
Cue resounding attacks from parents who have to defend any Priory fault. great school, but it has faults like any other.

Oh for heavens sake. Are there no normal people reading this forum? I want to know about Priory's view on SATs. I don't want to know about smoking or other schools...Jesus. I'd get more sensible answers from my 10 year old.

Well what do you expect? Asking sensible questions on here for heavens sake! One glance through other posts should make you realise what response you would get.

Unless it's changed they do stream them and yes the potential Oxbridge candidates are definitely kept together. They certainly are in Bhasvic

The Sats are used to help understand pupils current abilities and to show progress from when they come in, BUT they also sit other tests and it by no means determines groups as mixed ability. Also weak SATS are not always a representative of GCSEs as pupils develop at different rates. Personally I hate SATS and see them as a measure for the primary school league tables , all students sit tests in first week at priory.

They use a combination of the SATs results, feedback from primary school teachers and CAT tests early in year 7 to decide on target levels.
No, they don't generally stream but I think they may group the kids who need additional support.

Thanks parent....finally a sane answer!!!!

I think you mean setting rather than streaming. Streaming is the outmoded practice of putting more able pupils in the top class in every subject, rather than allowing for them to be better in some subjects than others, which is setting.
