Performance Data

Overall Trust performance


Due to the covid-19 pandemic, Key Stage tests did not take place during the summer term 2020 and no performance tables will be published, at school or MAT level, for 2020. 


The DfE published information about MAT performance for May 2019 Key Stage 2 tests (aka Year 6 SATs), which is available here. The publication contains data on attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths (combined) and progress between key stage 1 and key stage 2. Only MATs with 3 or more academies that have been with the MAT for at least 3 full academic years and have results in the 2019 school performance tables are included. Contextual information (including disadvantage and prior attainment) for schools included in the MAT measures is also included. You may also want to look at the interactive table which is available here.


The DfE published information about MAT performance for May 2018 Key Stage 2 tests (aka Year 6 SATs) in December 2018. The tables are available here.


The DfE published its MAT performance tables for 2016-17 on 25 January 2018.

We were delighted to see that the First Federation Trust was:

  • in the top 20 MAT nationally for progress in each of the three core subjects (Maths, Reading and Writing), and specifically the top three nationally for progress in Reading
  • the highest performing Trust for progress in Devon and the second highest performing Trust in the South West. 

The DfE MAT performance tables for 2016-17 can be found here. 


You can find information from the DfE about the performance of all Multi-Academy Trusts in 2015-16 here.  


Sir Michael Wilshaw, Head of Ofsted, has named the First Federation as one of the seven best performing MATs in the country (11 Oct 2016).
