Primary (key stage 2) performance in 2017

Following the new and more challenging curriculum introduced in 2014, children were assessed in 2016 by new tests. Results were no longer reported as levels: each pupil received their test results as a scaled score. The expected standard in the tests was a scaled score of 100 or above. Because of the changes set out above, figures from 2016 onwards are not comparable to those for earlier years. The expectations for pupils at the end of key stage 2 have been raised. Given the differences in the curriculum and assessments, levels are not comparable with scaled scores therefore the school’s previous end of key stage 2 results are not included. We have published here the school's performance for the past two years of the new tests.
