SATS Results

School Results 2017/2018

This is the third year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2 and Year 6.  The arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014 which provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. Results therefore cannot be compared with previous years.

The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages.  We are delighted with the excellent results across the school.  They are a tribute to the children and the staff.

Early Years Foundation Stage. 20 in the cohort. 1 child = 5%

70% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework.  The local authority average was 72% and the national average was 71% which make us broadly in line with these figures.  We are very pleased with this result which reflects an excellent year and takes into account a number of children within that class who have complex special needs yet whom have done extremely well from their own starting points.

A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development.

Year One Phonic Screening 29 in the cohort. 1 child = 3%

71% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test. We are very pleased with this result which reflects an excellent year and takes into account a number of children within that class who have complex special needs yet whom have done extremely well from their own starting points. If we take those children out of our data set for the purpose of analysis mainstream children’s attainment, we are at 81% which is in line with National and Wiltshire averages

Key Stage One. 31 in the cohort. 1 child = 3%

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science.  National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

Performance measures are as follows:

  • Expected Standard:      Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year

  • Greater Depth:             Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Key Stage Two. 29 in the cohort. 1 child = 3%

This curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.  The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard.  The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80. 

 Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing:

  • Expected Standard:      Working at the expected standard for their age

  • Greater Depth:             Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum
