We continue to be delighted with both our pupil progress and attainment results. By the end of Key Stage 2 our pupils are making far more than expected progress when compared to pupils nationally. This means our pupils are reaching and exceeding their full potential and making outstanding progress. Our attainment is above or in line with national average figures for Key Stage 2. This means that all pupils by the end of Key Stage 2 are well equipped to make the transition into their school.
KS2 SATs results
This is the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2 and Year 6. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014 which provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. Results therefore cannot be compared with previous years. However when compared to other schools nationally and across Devon progress in reading, writing and maths is in the top 6% of schools. We have now been in the top 6% of schools for progress in all subjects for 3 years.
We are delighted with the excellent KS2 results which continue to show that pupils in East-the-Water School make significantly more progress than national average. We would like to congratulate the children on their achievements this year.
The results of the SATs are reported as a scaled score where 100 represents the expected standard. The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80. Children with a scaled score above 110 are classed as working at a greater depth.
Children do not receive a scaled score in writing but are awarded a teacher assessed judgement of:
Expected standard: working at the expected standard for their age
Greater Depth: working at a greater depth within the expected standard
When progress is calculated the national average is counted as zero. Any number above zero means that children have made more progress than average, any negative number means that children have made less than average progress. As you can see below pupils continue to make substantially more progress than national average.
