SATs are the tests that the Year 6 children take in May. These results, along with the Teacher Assessment for writing (there is no test for writing), are reported and compared to the national average and other schools around the country.
Children at the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) are expected to reach at least Age Related Expectations (ARE) in reading, writing and maths:
- ARE = a scaled score of 100+
- Higher Standard = scaled score of 110+
As well as attainment, children’s progress is also measured at the end of Year 6. This is calculated by using their KS1 (Year 2) assessment and seeing if progress is better than expected (+ figure) or not as expected (- figure).
The table below, displays the attainment data – the percentage of children who have attained ARE and the Higher Standard – and the progress data for 2017:
These results reflect a marked improvement on the school’s figures for 2016 and also compare favourably to Norfolk’s figures:
