Key Stage 2 Exam and Assessment Results 2017-2018

The table below shows the levels of attainment (how well they did) and average progress score (how far they came since Year 2) of Year 6 children for the academic year 2017-18.

For a detailed breakdown on how the progress score is calculated, and what it means - see this useful article. For a slightly less in-depth view - see here.

The figures were above national figures for Maths. Although the difference is not significant, the cohort benefitted, we believe, from a new and flexible approach to maths teaching in Yr 6 - with smaller, more focussed groups spread across the year. We will continue this approach and extend it to Year 5 this year.

In all other areas, our results were below national, which is disappointing but it is also important to remember that these results are but one indicator of children's progress through primary - and that the breadth of curriculum delivery at our school is not reflected in government figures.

The table shows that the progress children made from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 was  good. The official wording is “Progress (sometimes known as value added) was on average better compared to those children with similar prior attainment nationally.”

We are really proud of how well the children did in the Key Stage 2 SATs and indeed the results from Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage as well. If you would like any further information please do contact us.
