Floor standard met – At least 65% of pupils met the standard in reading, writing and maths.

The children’s results in each test are reported using a scaled score.  A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. If a child gets a scaled score of 100 or more it means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject.  The highest scaled score possible is 120, and the lowest is 80.

Progress scores will be centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.

  • A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

  • A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

  • A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress; rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.

 

Floor standard met – Sufficient progress in all three reading, writing and maths – better than: -5 in reading, -5 in maths and -7 in writing.

 

2016 Key Stage 2 S.A.T.s Tests

2016 was the 1st year of the new Key Stage 2 tests in Maths, Reading and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.  The tests assess children against a national standard. This year’s tests are the 1st tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.  As this is the 1st year of the new tests the results will look different from those of previous years and cannot be compared with them directly.  The children’s results in each test are reported using a scaled score.  A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. If a child gets a scaled score of 100 or more it means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject.  The highest scaled score possible is 120, and the lowest is 80.  As the new standard is higher than the old one, fewer children have met the new expected standard than the previous standard.

In addition to taking the tests, teachers have assessed how well the children have done during the year in reading, writing, maths and science. Teachers have done this using a framework that describes what a child needs to do to be working at the expected standard in a subject.  For children who have completed the Key Stage 2 curriculum in writing, the teacher assessment says one of 3 things:

• working towards the expected standard and needs some support to meet national expectations;

• working at the expected standard for their age;

• working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Floor standard met – At least 65% of pupils met the standard in reading, writing and maths.

Progress Measure

The new progress measures are a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

This type of progress measure rewards schools for making progress with all of their pupils, whether they are low, middle or high attainers. Any increase in attainment achieved by each pupil will be reflected in the school’s progress scores. They are fairer to schools in challenging circumstances, as they recognise a school that is doing a good job with an intake with poor prior attainment.

Progress scores will be centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.

  • A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.
