A note on attainment and progress

The government no longer reports key stages 1 and 2 attainment using levels. Key stage 2 national curriculum test outcomes are instead reported as scaled scores, where 100 represents the expected standard and, for 2016, 110 represents the higher standard.

The government no longer defines expected progress. Key stage 1 to key stage 2 progress is calculated differently from previously and the national average is zero.

  • A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.
