Standards

Key Stage 2 (Yr 6) SATs Results 2017

Key points to note:

  • Children sit their key stage 2 SATs towards the end of year 6 (reading & maths: test, writing: teacher assessed)
  • Children receive a scaled score for the reading and maths tests – and these scores are between 80 and 120
  • Most children are anticipated to achieve the national expected standard which is a scaled score of 100 or above
  • The most able children are expected to achieve the higher standard which is a scaled score of 110 or more
  • Progress scores compare what the children got in old levels when they were in year 2 with the new scores they got this year, compared with other similar children nationally
    • (-) Negative scores indicate that children did not do as well as other similar children nationally
    • 0 means that the children performed about as well as other similar children nationally
    • Positive scores indicate that children did better than other similar children nationally
Percentage of pupils who achieved the expected standard or above in reading, writing and maths:
55%     (National = 61%)
R: 60% W: 70% M: 79%

The average progress made by pupils in reading, writing and maths:

  • R:  -1.7
  • W:  -1.0
  • M:  +0.2

The average scaled score achieved per pupil in reading and maths (scores were between 80 and 120, with the national expected standard being 100)

  • R: 101
  • M: 103

Percentage of pupils who achieved a high level of attainment in reading, writing and maths:

  • R: 13%
  • W: 13%
  • M: 17%

Whole school assessment (Y1 to Y6)

In school throughout the year, children are assessed according to the objectives in the National Curriculum for the year group they are in, these objectives set out the ‘Age Related Expectation’ (ARE) for the year group they are in.

Depending on how many objectives they meet, children will be assessed each term as:

  • Beginning: becoming familiar with the end of year expectations
  • Emerging: secure in some of the end of year expectations
  • Expected: secure in almost all or all of the end of year expectations
  • Greater depth: secure in all of the end of year expectations AND able to use and apply their   skills confidently

In school, beginning is recorded with the letter c, emerging with the letter b, expected with the letter a, greater depth as a+.

So, a child in year 1 who has met the majority of the end of year expectations would be recorded as 1a at the end of the year, e.g. they are at the expected standard for year 1.
