Summary of End of Key Stage 2 Achievement 2016-17

Percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard

The percentage of children achieving the expected standard in in all areas was above the national figure was well above the national figure, significantly so in reading, writing and the combined measure.

Percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard

The percentage of children achieving a higher standard in reading and maths is significantly higher than the national figure in all areas.

Average scaled scores

In each test, the raw score (marks gained) is converted to a scaled score where 100 represents the expected standard. A score at or above 110 is considered to be at a ‘higher standard’.

Progress measures from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2

All progress figures are positive, with writing being above average, reading well above average and maths broadly average.

Summary of End of Key Stage 2 Achievement 2017-18

Percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard

* Writing teacher assessments were externally moderated this year.

The percentage of children achieving the expected standard in writing was well above the national figure. However, the percentage of SIJS children achieving the expected standard is slightly lower that the national figure for reading and maths, and lower for grammar, punctuation and spelling. Although the percentage of SIJS children reaching the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined was slightly lower than the national figure, it was in line with the county figure for this measure.

Percentage of pupils achieving the higher standard

The percentage of children achieving a higher standard in reading and maths is below the national figure, but above the national figure for writing.

Average scaled scores

In each test, the raw score (marks gained) is converted to a scaled score where 100 represents the expected standard. A score at or above 110 is considered to be at a ‘higher standard’.

Progress measures from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2

National figures for progress are not yet confirmed, but SIJS progress scores were lower than the county figure for reading and maths and above the county figure for writing.

Three Year Average Figures (2016-18)

All three year average figures for SIJS are higher than both national and county figures, except maths which is in line with the national figure.

As always, we are immensely proud of the positive attitude that all our pupils showed towards their end of Key Stage tests and particularly the way in which they supported and encouraged each other, showing great emotional intelligence.

We are acutely aware that the overall results for 2018 are lower than national figures in areas other than writing, although the average three year figures still compare favourably to the county and national figures.

We have analysed the achievement and progress of children across the school and, as part of our School Improvement Plan, prioritised key skills across the Key Stage so that all of our children build on and develop their confidence, fluency and competence in these essential foundations, as well as ensuring that Year 6 pupils in particular are fully prepared for the demands of the tests themselves. This sits alongside our commitment to continue to provide an inclusive, engaging curricular experience for all children.

The areas identified include refocusing on key objectives within the core subjects in each year group and using an improved way to track the progress of all children, groups and individuals in all year groups closely throughout the year.

Our School Improvement Plan also identifies a focus on fluency, stamina and key skills in maths, reading, grammar and punctuation, and particularly spelling, with changes being made to expectations both within school and linked to children’s home learning. Our aim, as always, is to motivate and enable all children to achieve their own personal bests and to enjoy learning in its widest sense so that they are well-equipped for their futures, aware of what they are capable of and enabled to achieve and succeed.
