School Data at a Glance

School Data at a Glance

Background

In 2016 a new, more challenging curriculum (introduced in 2014) was assessed by new tests for the first time.  Results in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation & spelling are no longer reported as levels but as scaled scores with teacher assessment in writing based on standards published in an interim framework.

Raw scores are standardised and scaled scores calculated: these scaled scores are used in schools’ performance data.  The expected standard in the tests is a scaled score of 100 and the threshold for a ‘high’ score this year has been set at 110.

As the national curriculum and the tests have changed it is not possible to compare this year’s results with previous attainment in school and nationally.

NOTE

In 2016 the attainment at Simon Marks was better than national in almost all areas with 58% of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and maths compared with 53% nationally, and 17% achieving a high level in all subjects compared with 5% nationally.  Attainment at a high level in reading was particularly strong with 46% of Simon Marks pupils achieving this compared with 19% nationally.

Progress is measured by grouping pupils according to their key stage 1 attainment, and comparing individuals’ key stage 2 data with the average within each group to calculate an individual progress score.  These are then averaged to reach a progress score for the school.  A progress score of 0 means that pupils on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment.  A positive score means pupils on average do better than those with similar prior attainment, and a negative score means pupils on average do worse at KS2 than those with similar prior attainment.

Until progress data is released in December we cannot compare Simon Marks with national.
