PERFORMANCE & ASSESSMENT

In England school performance is mostly measured through quantitative data. The data focuses on individual pupil’s attainment and the progress they make from entry to the school in Reception to the end of Year 2 and then from Year 2 to the time the pupils leave the school in Year 6.

There are national tests at Year 6 (SATs) which are taken in May, but a combination of teacher assessments and external assessments are also used by schools from Reception through to Year 6 to internally monitor pupil attainment and progress.

New progress and attainment measures

  • The government no longer reports key stages 1 and 2 attainment using levels.
  • Key stage 2 national curriculum test outcomes are instead reported as scaled scores, where 100 represents the expected standard .
  • At key stage 2, teacher assessment is reported for writing and science.
  • At key stage 1, teacher assessment is reported for reading, writing, mathematics and science.
