Department for Education
Many Parents are keen to see how we are performing in relation to other schools.
The Department for Education (DfE) Performance Tables provide a reliable and accessible source of comparative information on pupil attainment and progress, absence, workforce and finance.

2016 was the first year of the new Key Stage 1 & 2 tests in maths and English reading (and Vocabulary, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling at KS2).
2016’s tests were the first to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014. The Department for Education designed this new curriculum to be on a par with the best education systems in the world, and to give each child the best start in life.
Because this is the first year of the new tests, the results will look very different from those of previous years, and should not be compared with them. This is because the Department for Education have introduced a new curriculum and set higher standards. It is true that in doing so they have raised the bar but this is because they want to match the best international standards worldwide.
In Year 2, teachers made judgements based on how each child has performed in the classroom over the last two years, using the end of Key Stage tests as one piece of evidence to make these judgements. The reason for using tests as part of the assessment process is it gives teachers a way of comparing children against a consistent national standard. Test results were converted using what’s known as a scaled score, where a score of 100 means a child is working at the expected standard. A score below 100 indicates that a child needs more support and a score of 100 or above suggests a child is working at or above expectations for their age.
The same occurs in Year 6 to assess children’s writing. Their reading and mathematics scores, however, are calculated from SATs examinations alone. Like Year 2 children, their results are converted into scaled scores, where a child scoring more than 100 is working at the expected standard. The progress that Year 6 children make from their Year 2 starting points is detailed below.
