Standards of Attainment

Standards of Attainment

There are no national standards for assessment comparison at the end of Years 1, 3, 4 or 5 for reading, writing, maths or spelling punctuation and grammar (SPAG).

 

In order to compare standards in these year groups, we use the national data at the end of Year 2 for Year 1, and the national data at the end of Year 6 for Years 3, 4 and 5. This gives us some idea about standards for these year groups.

 

We have national assessment averages for reception’s Good Level of Development, Year 1’s Phonics Screening Check and the end of Year 2 and 6 statutory assessments.

 

At the time of writing, the national averages for KS1 in 2018 are not yet available, so this comparison is with the published national average for 2017.

 

In KS2, we know the national averages for 2018 at ARE+(Age Related Expectation and above), but the GD (Greater Depth) averages are not yet available, so this comparison is, once more, made with the published GD national average for 2017.

The curriculum in KS2 is broad and balanced. It has not been ‘narrowed’ to meet the needs of the test at the end of Year 6.

KS2 Test outcomes are above at ARE+ and GD for Reading and Writing, above in GD Maths and below in the other areas.
