End of Key Stage 2 Results

We are delighted to announce that we have continued with our high levels of attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths. Well done to all of our July leavers on their wonderful achievements.

KS2 SATs in 2018 followed the new testing and marking procedures introduced in 2016. The actual scores that pupils received in their tests, the ‘raw’ scores, are scaled to account for any variability in difficulty of the tests from year to year. The scaling is done such that a pass mark always corresponds to a scaled score of 100. In KS2 the full range of scaled scores is 80 - 120, with a scaled score of 100 or more representing the expected standard or higher in each test.

A more detailed discussion of the process, which contains technical information for headteachers, teachers, governors and local authorities, is available from the link below.

In the table of results below, Writing tests are teacher assessed and are not scaled, therefore there are no direct equivalents to the ‘Average scaled score’ and ‘% reaching highest score’ columns. In Writing, the ‘% reaching high scores’ column is equivalent to an assessment of ‘Greater Depth’ in Writing.

The ‘Combined Scores’ line in the table indicates the number of children attaining the expected scores in each of the three areas of Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. As there is no scaled score in Writing there are again no direct equivalents to the ‘Average scaled score’ and ‘% reaching highest score’ columns.

Please note that the initial publication of these results does not include all data, meaning that, as at the end of September 2018, for some columns data is not yet available (indicated by n/a). These will be filled when the remaining data is released.

Summary of our results

In our results for 2018, the proportion of pupils attaining the expected standard or above in all three subjects - Reading, Writing, and Mathematics - was 70%, which is above the national average of 64%.

23% of our pupils attained a high score (110-120) in both Reading and Mathematics and also attainment at ‘Greater Depth’ in Writing. Only 5% of eleven-year-olds across England have attained this ‘high’ combined measure.

Our average scaled scores in each area are above those obtained nationally.
