GLD: Children who have reached the expected standard in the Prime Areas.
Phonic Screen: The Phonics Screening Check is to show how well your child can use the phonics skills they've learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify children who require extra phonics help. The Department for Education defines the checks as “short, light-touch assessments” that take about four to nine minutes to complete.
KS1: The children in KS1 do sit end of year SATs, however, this information is not published. It is used to feed into the teacher’s overall assessment of a child (as shown in the tables below).
KS2: Children in Year 6 sit end of Year SATs in reading, grammar and maths, however, writing is assessed using pieces of writing from across the year.'
SATs Information 2015/16 Onwards
The National ‘Floor Standard’ for attainment is 65% for all subjects combined.
A scaled score of 110 or more is the threshold for a pupil’s performance to be viewed as being to a higher standard than expected.
Progress is calculated using a value-added measure from KS1 to KS2. It is based on value added in each of reading, writing and maths compared with the scores of pupils with the same Key Stage 1 results.
The Government’s Progress Floor Targets for KS2: -5 in Reading, -7 in Writing and -5 in Maths. Progress scores will be centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.
A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.
