Last year was the first year that the new more challenging national curriculum was assessed by new tests. Results are no longer reported as levels: each pupil receives their results as a scaled score and teacher assessments based on the standards in the interim framework
Because of the changes figures for 2016 are not easily comparable to those for earlier years as the expectations for pupils by the end of Key Stage 2 have been raised.
The expected standard in the tests is a scaled score of 100 or above, children who achieved 110 or above met the threshold for a high score.
Progress is measured based on prior attainment at Key Stage 1. Children are then compared to how their peers with the same starting points performed in the latest assessments.
|Met the Expected Standard||Achieved a High Score||Progress from KS1 to KS2|
|Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation||41%||3%|

Although it is difficult to compare performance with previous years, The Fischer Family Trust (FFT), a non-profit organisation, have developed a reporting tool for schools, Local Authorities and Academy Chains which has enabled them to develop a means of comparing previous performances with current performances.
