Year 6 Results 2018-19 (outcomes)

The Year 6 SATs assess how confidently pupils are performing in English and Maths. Pupils sit national tests for Reading, SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and Maths. Standards in writing were teacher assessed over a longer period of time. Talbot‘s results were well above both the national average and local average for Leeds in all subjects except writing (where they were in-line with national outcomes).

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 2018-19 (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.

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

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

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 2018-9 outcomes

The Year 2 SATs assess how confidently pupils are performing in English and Maths. Pupils sit national tests for Reading and Maths, which are used to inform the final outcomes for each pupil in these subjects. 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.
