An alternative way at measuring achievement is to compare the Average Point Score of pupils at the end of KS2. The national expectation is to score 100 in each subject (NB: there is no average point score for writing due to the manner it is assessed).

Year 6 Results 2015-16 (progress comparisons based on Fischer Family Trust data)

Progress measures describe how much progress pupils have made from the end of Year 2 to the end of Year 6. It is a comparison of the average scaled scores for each test. This is important because it takes into account the different starting points for each child and therefore shows the value a school adds to each pupil's education.

Interpreting progress scores, taken from DfE guidance

Progress scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.

A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.

A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points. For example, if a school has a maths score of -4 this would mean that on average pupils in this school achieved 4 scaled scores less than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.

 

Year 2 Results 2015-16

The Year 2 SATs assess how confidently pupils are performing in English and Maths. Pupils sit national tests for Reading and Maths. As in Year 6, standards in writing were teacher assessed over a longer period of time. Talbot‘s results were above the local average for Leeds and above the national average in all subjects.

Fischer Family Trust 2016 data shows KS1 progress was +2% higher than the national average in terms of those reaching the expected standard and +4% higher than the national avergae in terms of those reaching Greater Depth. These results are considered to be "inline with national expectations"
