Attainment & Progress
End of Key Stage 2 Results 2017 – 2018
The KS2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling assess children against a national standard which reflects that particular academic year.
The children’s results in each test are reported using a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. If a child gets a scaled score of 100 or more it means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject. If a child gets a scaled score of less than 100 it means that they may need more support to reach the expected standard. The highest scaled score possible is 120, and the lowest is 80. As the new standard is higher than the old one, fewer children have met the new expected standard than the previous standard.
There is no test for writing which is assessed against the teacher assessment frameworks at the end of key stage 2.

Progress from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2
These scores are no longer reflected as the percentage of pupils who make expected progress but are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally:
- A score of 0 means pupils in the school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.

End of Key Stage 1 Results 2017 – 2018
Missing national comparison data will be added when available
In 2018 Year 2 teachers made judgements based on how each child has performed in the classroom, using the end of key stage tests as one piece of evidence to make these judgements. The reason for using tests as part of the assessment process is it gives teachers a way of comparing children against a consistent national standard. Test results were converted using what's known as a scaled score, where a score of 100 means a child is working at the expected standard. A score below 100 indicates that a child needs more support and a score of 100 or above suggests a child is working at or above expectations for their age.
Our outcomes below are based on well considered judgements of our children's performance at the end of Key Stage 1:

Year 1 Phonics 2018
The phonics screening check is designed to confirm whether pupils have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. It will identify pupils who need extra help to improve their decoding skills.
The check consists of 20 real words and 20 pseudo-words that a pupil reads aloud to the teacher.

Early Years Foundation Stage 2018
At the end of the EYFS – in the summer term of the reception year in school – teachers complete an assessment which is known as the EYFS Profile. This assessment is carried out by the reception teacher and is based on what they, and other staff caring for your child, have observed over a period of time. All of the information collected is used to judge how the children are doing in the 7 areas of learning and development. Children to attain the expected level in; communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development; literacy and numeracy are awarded a Good Level of Development (GLD)
