2016-17 Key Stage 2 SAT Results

Children sat a reading test; a spelling test and a grammar test which combined gives the results for SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar); and 3 written maths papers; 1 on arithmetic and 2 reasoning papers.

Children’s raw scores are now awarded a scaled score; a score of 100 or more indicates a child is working “at age related expectations” or at “ARE”. Writing was assessed by teachers using very specific criteria.

Children’s progress was measured from their Key Stage 1 results. This was done by averaging their results for Reading Writing and Maths at Key Stage 1 and comparing them to individual subjects at Key Stage 2. This means that if a child is good at Maths but struggles with English (or vice versa) they show excellent progress in one subject and unsatisfactory progress in the other.
