KS2 SATs 2016 - Results and Data


Changes to SATs tests in 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 (which ranges from 80 - 120)  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’ or a 'Greater Depth' pupil.


Outcomes in writing are measured by assessments made by teaching staff, moderated by the local authority.


2016 Progress Measures


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 approximately 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.


Outcomes for St. Francis de Sales are detailed below.  Equivalent outcomes nationally are also provided for comparison purposes.
