Key Stage 2 Outcomes at Stivichall Primary School 2018

Attainment and Achievement

In May 2018, our Year 6 pupils undertook statutory end of Key Stage 2 assessments (SATs) in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS).  Writing was teacher assessed using the 2018 revised writing TA frameworks.

It is important to note that attainment in all of reading, writing and maths (combined) is not directly comparable to previous years because of changes to writing TA frameworks.

To reach the expected standard in all of reading, writing and maths, a pupil must achieve a scaled score of 100 or more in reading and maths tests and an outcome of ‘working at the expected standard’ or ‘working at greater depth’ in writing TA.

Attainment: expected standard 

In 2018, 81% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Maths, combined (compared with 64% nationally and up 12% from 2017).

• Reading: 88% meeting expected standards (compared with 75% nationally and up 6% from 2017)

• Writing: 90% meeting expected standards (compared with 78% nationally)


• Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: 92% meeting expected standards (compared with 78% nationally and up 11% from 2017)


• Maths: 88% meeting expected standards (compared with 76% nationally and up 6% from 2017)

Scaled scores

100 is the expected national standard, Stivichall pupils perform well (there are no scaled scores available for Writing).

• 108.9 average scaled score in Reading (National: 105.0)


• 106.8 average scaled score in Maths (National: 104.4)


• 109.1 average scaled score in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (National: 106.2)

Attainment: higher standard 

Scaled scores of over 110 are considered ‘high scores’ in Reading, Maths and GPS. 
  Writing is assessed using Writing TA framework and is judged to be ‘greater depth’ standard when criteria are evidenced through independent writing.  Through Local Authority (LA) moderation and due in part to changes to the writing TA framework, a lower than expected percentage of children were judged to be consistently writing at the standard required for greater depth. As a result, despite consistently high outcomes in all of the other subjects, 5.2% of our pupils achieved a high level of attainment in combined Reading, Writing and Maths (compared with 9.8% nationally).

• Reading: 44% higher standard (compared with 28% nationally and up 9% from 2017)

• Writing: 5.2% greater depth standard (compared with 19.8% nationally)

• Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: 51% higher standard (compared with 34% nationally and up 16% from 2017)

• Maths: 33% higher standard (compared with 24% nationally).

Progress 

The Department for Education measures progress from Key Stage 1 (KS1) to Key Stage 2 (KS2). Expected progress is zero, with anything above that being better than expected and negative numbers showing less than expected progress.

• +2.6 average progress in Reading

• -1.3 average progress in Writing

• +1.9 average progress in Maths

Overall, we are happy that outcomes at Stivichall for both attainment and progress remain higher than national and exceed local authority outcomes. The data is presented in a table below.
