Performance Data

At the end of Key Stage 2 children are judged to be either working at the expected standard or not. Some children may be judged to be working above the expected standard.

Our performance data can be viewed on this page, as well as on the Department for Education website.

At the end of Key Stage 2, children sit a test in Reading, SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and Maths. Children are assessed by their class teacher in Writing.

Children in Year 6 took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements. Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum was assessed. This curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.

The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80.

Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:

Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for their age

Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum

Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling (SPAG) and maths. For further information, please see the Information for parents KS2 leaflet from the Standards and Testing Agency.
