Kingsham Primary School

2016 was the first year of the new Key Stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling. The tests assess children against a national standard. This year’s tests are the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum which was introduced in 2014. As this is the first year of the new tests, the results will look different from those of previous years and cannot be compared with them directly. The new curriculum has been introduced to be on a par with the best education systems in the world and expects children to achieve higher standards than before. As the new standard is higher than the old one, fewer children have met the new expected standard than the previous standard.

• A positive score means pupils at Kingsham, on average, do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.

• A negative score means pupils at Kingsham, on average, don’t do as well at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.

Average Scaled Scores

Children’s results in each test are reported using a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. Children achieving a scaled score of 100 or more means they are working at, or above, the expected standard in the subject. Children achieving a scaled score of less than 100 means that they may need more support to reach the expected standard. The highest scaled score possible is 120, and the lowest is 80. You can find more information on scaled scores at www.gov.uk/guidance/scaled-scores-at-key-stage-2
