Key Stage 2 Test (SATs) Results

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.  Progress data for 2018 will be presented very soon:

% at ARE (and above) % at Higher Standard Average Scaled Score Progress
School National School National School National School National
Combined 69 64 8 10 NA NA NA
Maths 7 76 15 24 103 104 0
Reading 77 75 31 28 103 105 0
Writing 72 78 16 20 NA NA 0
GPS 73 78 34 34 105 106 NA NA

These results reflect a very pleasing set of results especially the fact that we have performed significantly better than the national average for R, W and M combined.  Our results also compare favourably to Norfolk’s and DNEAT’s average figures:

School % at ARE (and above) Local Authority % at ARE DNEAT
Combined 69 (8) 59 (7) 54 (4)
Maths 75 (15) 70 (18) 66 (11)
Reading 77 (31) 71 (25) 67 (24)
Writing 73 (16) 75 (16) 70 (12)
GPS 73 (34) 70 (24)
