Children need to achieve a scaled score of 100 in the reading, mathematics and spelling, punctuation and grammar tests to achieve the expected standard. A high score is a scaled score of 110 or more. The reading, writing and mathematics combined measure consists of children achieving the 100+ scaled score in mathematics and reading and being teacher assessed at the expected standard for writing.
Individual pupil progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score was zero. A school’s progress score for individual subjects will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.
A score of zero means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at Key Stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally. A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between Key Stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.
