KS2 Results 2016
Following considerable changes to the structure of assessment at KS2 from summer 2016, the performance data for all primary schools is no longer presented as national curriculum levels. Instead, levels have been removed and in their place is a national ‘Expected Standard’ for Year 6 children to meet. This standard is met by achieving at least 100 on a scaled score in reading; spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG); and mathematics in SAT tests. Further, children who achieve a score of 110+ on the scaled score are identified as attaining a ‘Higher Standard’.
Outcomes in writing are measured by assessments made by teaching staff, moderated by the local authority.
The progress measure for the year group indicates whether the children, collectively, have made progress ‘below’, ‘in line with’ or ‘above’ expectation nationally. A progress score of 0 means pupils in a school (on average) do about as well at KS2 as those nationally. A positive score means pupils in a school (on average) do better at KS2 than those nationally. A negative score means pupils (on average) do less well at KS2 than those nationally. Most schools’ progress scores fall in the range of -5 to +5.
Provisional outcomes for Whalley CE Primary are detailed below. Equivalent outcomes nationally are also provided for comparison purposes.
