SATs Results

    "Pupil make good progress throughout the school... All teachers are committed to ensuring equal opportunity for all pupils so that they achieve well."

    Every May, Year 6 children across England take statutory tests in Literacy and Maths. Last year, a new set of tests were introduced, setting higher expectations and altering the way scores are given. In previous years, results were given in 'levels', with a Level 4 being the national expectation for Year 6. From 2016, test scores are coverted into a 'Standardised Score' between 80 and 120 for each subject, with a score of 100 representing the new expected level for starting secondary schools. Children across the country found these tests much more challenging, and the percentage achieving expected levels dipped in almost every school - ours included - as a result. The other way in which SATs results are interpretted is through the progress that children have made since Year 2 (called the Value Added score, or VA for short), and ranked by this measure we have historically performed really strongly.
