Key Stage 2 test Results 2017-2018

In May 2018, our Year 6 pupils were tested on the National Curriculum. Each pupil received a scaled score (100 being expected standard) and schools report an average scaled score for the pupils who took the tests.


Please note: the scores below are only provisional.  We are awaiting confirmation of amended scores following the disapplication of some pupils.  The revised scores will be posted when received.

Progress

This is now measured against all pupils nationally with similar starting points so that an overall progress score can be achieved. A score of ‘0’ means that our pupils on average have done as well as others nationally. A positive score (ie: +1) means that our pupils have exceeded others nationally and a negative score means that our pupils have not progressed as well as others nationally.

In order to reach the baseline set by the Government, a school must:

  • Achieve a combined score of 65% of pupils meeting expected standards in reading, writing and maths or
  • Achieve sufficient progress in all 3 subjects. At least -5 in reading, -5 in maths and -7 in writing.

These are known as Floor Standards
