KS2  Assessment Results 2016

In 2016, the new more challenging national curriculum, which was introduced in 2014, was assessed by new tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment. 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.

We are now able to provide you with information relating to our school’s performance for the last academic year. 

Capture

  

In our school, 56% of the children achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined (exceeding both national and county averages).

The positive progress scores in reading, writing and maths mean that pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.

 

Interpreting a school’s progress scores

Individual pupil level progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score will be zero. 

A school’s progress scores for English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.

• A score of 0 means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

• A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.

• A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
 

Comparisons Over Time (Department for Education)

Children sitting key stage 2 tests in 2016 were the first to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics. It would therefore be incorrect and misleading to make direct comparisons showing changes over time.
