Results for 2015-16

We are delighted to share our results following the newly implemented end of Key Stage National Curriculum Tests.  These exams were developed by the DfE with a remit of raising standards.  It is important to note that this has meant that direct comparisons with previous are not possible. Attainment and progress measures have changed as well as higher expectations, making it more challenging to reach the expected standard

Contextual background

There were 13 children in total in Y6 cohort here at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary school. Of those 13, 4 were on the SEND register which equates to 30%. Each pupil is therefore each child represent 7.6%

National and Local Information

Attainment and Progress

As a headline figure, 53% of all children nationally, achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.  Nationally, 5% of pupils achieved a high standard in all three subjects. Attainment is based on the children achieving a scaled score which is calculated from the raw score of the test. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard on the test.

Progress is measured based on prior attainment at Key Stage 1. To meet progress measure the school should achieve sufficient progress scores in all three subjects. At least -5 in English reading, -5 in mathematics and -7 in English writing.

St Joseph’s Data

In total, 69% of the children reached the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics combined with 23% achieving a high standard. It is clear to see that we are still well above the national figure.

Scale Scores

A pupil’s scaled score is based on their raw score form the test. The raw score is the total number of marks a pupil scores in a test, based on the number of questions they answered correctly. The raw scores were converted to a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard on the test. Children scoring 100 or more will have met the expected standard on the test
