2018 End of Key Stage Results


In 2016, the new more challenging national curriculum, which was introduced in 2014, was assessed by new tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessments. 

Key Stage 2

Results are no longer reported as levels: each pupil receives their test result as a scaled score.  The expected standard is a scaled score of 100. 

The previous 'expected progress' between key stage 1 and key stage 2 has been replaced by a value-added measure.  There is no longer a target for the amount of progress an individual pupil is expected to make.  Any amount of progress a pupil makes contributes toward the school's progress score.  A school's progress scores are calculated as the average of it's pupils' subject progress scores. These scores give an indication of whether, as group, pupils in the school made above or below average progress in a subject compared with pupils with similar starting points in other schools.

In 2018 a school is above the floor if:

  • at least 65% of pupils meet the expected standard in all three subjects - Reading, Writing and Mathematics; or
  • the school achieves sufficient progress scores in all three subjects - at least -5 in Reading and -5 in Mathematics and -7 in Writing.
