Standards

We are very proud of all the achievements of our pupils and staff across the whole curriculum and within all areas of school life.  This section will give you an insight into our school and how we perform within National Curriculum statutory assessments in Y6/end of Key Stage Two.

Academic Year 2015 – 2016 – KS2 SATs Results

New Key Stage 2 Assessments in 2016

The 2016 key stage 2 assessments are the first which assess the new, more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. The expected standard has also been raised to be higher than the old level 4. As a result, figures for 2016 are not comparable to those for earlier years.

Given the differences from previous years to the curriculum and assessments, levels are not comparable with scaled scores or teacher assessment outcomes. Children in Year 6, across the country, had only studied the new Maths and English curriculum for half of the expected four years.

Results are no longer reported as levels: each pupil receives their test results as a scaled score and teacher assessments based on the standards in the interim framework. The expected standard in the tests is a scaled score of 100 or above. The average scaled score is calculated as the mean scaled score of all pupils awarded a scaled score.

  • The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ for Reading, Writing and Maths combined was 41 (national 53).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving  ‘high level of attainment’ for Reading, Writing and Maths combined was 0 (national 5).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ for Reading was 52 (national 66).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ for Writing was 74 (national 74).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ for Maths was 48 (national 70).
  • The percentage of pupils achieving the ‘expected standard’ for Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling was 56 (national 72).
  • The average scaled score in Reading was 99 (national 103).
  • The average scaled score in Maths was 98 (national 103).
  • The average scaled score in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling was 100 (national 104

 

Progress between KS1/end of Y2 and KS2/end of Y6 is difficult to be fully accurate as the curriculum and expectations for these children when they were in Y2 was different to the curriculum and expectations at the end of Y6.

  • Average progress in Reading between KS1 and KS2 was -3.4
  • Average progress in Writing between KS1 and KS2 was 2.3
  • Average progress in Maths between KS1 and KS2 was – 4.6

(national progress is zero)
