Key Stage 2 Test Results 2018
2016 was the first year for the new key stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling. The tests assess children against a national standard. Therefore, this year’s tests are only the second tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014.
Attainment: Children’s results are reported using a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. A child achieving a scaled score of 100 or more means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject. Less than 100 means that they may need more support to reach the expected standard. The highest scaled score possible at KS2 is 120, and the lowest is 80. There is more information on scaled scores at: www.gov.uk/guidance/scaled-scores-at-key-stage-2.
Progress scores for reading, writing and maths will be centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.
* A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
* A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally and a negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
