At the end of Key Stage 2, children sit a test in Reading, SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and Maths. Children are assessed by their class teacher in Writing.
Children in Year 6 took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements. Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum was assessed. 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
Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling (SPAG) and maths. For further information, please see the Information for parents KS2 leaflet from the Standards and Testing Agency.
Department for education calculate progress measures using a value-added measure from KS1 to KS2. This value added measure is worked out from the progress made since KS1.
Updated progress measures for 2018/2019 will be available in the Autumn term.
|Ribbon Academy's Progress Measures for 2018/2019 were:|
A score of 0 means on average children do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. A positive score means on average children do better. A negative score means on average children are not doing so well.
This is the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. Therefore, results cannot be compared with previous years. For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents from the Standards and Testing Agency.
At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing and maths. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.
Ribbon Academy’s performance was above the national average in every subject.
The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum
*Combined scores are children achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths
76% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework.
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.
81% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test.
This is in line with national averages.
