2016 EYFS Headlines

64% of our children achieved the nationally expected ‘Good Level of Development’, which is fantastic based on their on-entry to school data which was 22.5% at expected levels.

 

2016 KS1 and KS2 Information

The 2016 key stage 1 and 2 assessments were the first which assessed the new, more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014 (2016 leaving Y6 had only 2 years with the new curriculum). New tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment were introduced to reflect the changes. Results are no longer reported as levels and all children now receive their test results as a scaled score with 100 being national expectation. The scale ranges from 80 – 120 in reading, maths and spelling, punctuation and grammar. There is no scaled score in writing as it is teacher assessment rather than test based. Teacher assessments are based on the standards in the interim framework.

 

Children sitting the key stage 2 tests this year were the first to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics. It would therefore be incorrect and misleading to make direct comparisons showing changes over time.

For example, it is wrong to say that ‘the percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics fell from 80% in 2015 to 53% in 2016’

In looking over time, all users of the statistics can say at this stage is that ‘53% of pupils achieved the new expected standard in 2016 when being taught and assessed against the higher standards expected under the new curriculum. Under the previous system, 80% of pupils achieved the standard that was expected under that system.’

Iain Bell, Head of Profession for Statistics at the Department for Education

Nationally, 53% of pupils reached the new expected standards in reading, writing and maths and this was 50% at Greenfield Primary School. The table below shows how we compare to schools nationally but does not take into account progress that children have made from the end of KS1.

Given the level of challenge that the new curriculum presents and the difficulty of the tests, we feel that the children have done well with most of those who did not achieve the expected level being very close with scores of 98 and 99, often from lower starting points, and would have achieved L4+ in the old system. They are to be congratulated on this!
