The Department for Education requires all schools to publish the following performance information annually:
What is a ‘scaled score’?
Your child will have achieved a ‘raw’ score for maths, reading and GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, sometimes called SPAG) based on the number of questions they correctly answered. This is then converted into a ‘scaled score’. A score of 100 is required to meet the expected standard.
What does that mean for my child’s score?
How do current SATs results compare to previous years?
This is only the second year of results under the assessment system. All comparison with the previous system is very difficult as expectations are much higher and the children have been learning from a new National Curriculum, which was released in 2014.
What are the national trends?
For 2017 the national scaled score for each subject is as follows:
How do schools calculate the ‘combined’ score?
The combined score is not an average of the scaled results. It is a percentage based on how many children have met the expected standards in all three subjects (i.e. reading, writing and maths).
