 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.

Floor standards for this year (2017) require schools to have 65% of pupils meeting the Expected Standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics or  that the school achieves sufficient progress scores in all three subjects : At least -5 in Reading, -5 in mathematics and -7 in writing.

2015-2016 KS2 Results

This year saw our first set of results under the new SATs framework and the new, more rigorous National Curriculum.  In the previous two years, Palm Bay’s results have been above the national average in all areas of learning.

This year a greater percentage of children achieve the expected standard or above in reading, writing and GPVS. 
A greater percentage of children perform at a higher level of attainment in combined Reading, Writing and Mathematics. 
The scaled scores are broadly in line with the national average.

The schools progress scores indicate that pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

Maths is a school improvement focus for this academic year and we are currently evaluating our practice in maths to ensure that we improve outcomes in KS2 to meet those of the EYFS and KS1.

2015-2016 KS1 Results

At Palm Bay Primary School a greater percentage of children achieved the expected standard or higher in all areas of learning at KS1, with significantly more pupils achieving the expected standard or higher in combined reading, writing and mathematics.  A greater percentage of children achieved  a higher level of attainment in writing and mathematics.

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 high 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. Provisional 2016 data for each subject shows that fewer than 5% of schools have progress scores above 5 and fewer than 5% of schools have progress scores below -5.

• 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.
