School Results

Information for parents about the 2017 statutory assessments

 

The 2017 assessments are the first which assess the new, more challenging national curriculum. New tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment have been introduced to reflect the revised curriculum. Results are no longer reported as levels and each pupil in KS1 (Yr 2) and KS2 (Yr 6) will receive a teacher assessment based on the standards in the interim framework. Pupils in Yr 6 will also receive a test result as a scaled score (see below).

 

Figures for 2017 are not comparable to those of earlier years because of the changes set out above. The expectations for the end of each key stage have been raised. Given the differences in the curriculum and assessments, levels are not comparable with scaled scores or teacher assessment outcomes.

 

KS2 Test Results

 

The tests were marked externally and the results returned to school. All the test results were converted to a scaled score: the scaled score gives an indication of how children have achieved against the national standard. A score of 100 represents the new national expectation. Therefore anything below 100 is classes as working towards the expected standard and a scale score above 110 indicates that a pupil is working at a higher standard, when compared to the nationally expected standard.

KS1 and KS2 teacher assessment

 

Teacher assessments in are made according to the government’s lists of expectations. Teacher assessment cannot be a “best fit” against the criteria: a pupil must show evidence of achievement in each specific point on the government’s list.
