Key Stage 2 SATs in 2016 How well did we do?

Year 6 pupils have to take compulsory SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) in May of each year. This report explains the outcomes of the Year6 SATs tests from May 2016.

Year 6 pupils worked extremely hard last year and have achieved excellent outcomes in their SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests), especially as the SATs in 2016 were new and much more difficult than in previous years. They also included EGPS (English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) tests for the first time. The tests are made up as follows:

English: 1 x 1hour reading test; 1 x 45 minute EGP test and one spelling test

Writing: teacher assessed based on evidence from a selection of writing – the school was also part of the moderation cycle this year, meaning that moderators from the Local Authority came in to check that teacher assessments were accurate.

Maths: 3 x 45 minute tests (1 arithmetic and 2 reasoning and problem solving tests)

The tests this year do not give levels as in previous years – they state whether children ‘achieved expected levels’, were below ‘expected levels’ or were ‘working at greater depth’ (higher than expected levels).

Although our results of Reading, Writing and Maths combined is lower than in previous years, this was the situation across the country – indeed, only 53% of children nationally achieved the expected levels in all three – Bellfield Junior School achieved 51%, although many children missed out by only 1 or 2 marks.

Our RaiseOnline – the information the DfE publishes to show how well our children are doing – showed that although our attainment was about average compared to National figures, our progress indicators show that children are making at least good progress – in the case of mathematics, particularly good progress. Compared to similar schools to ourselves, our figures are favourable.

We would like to say that we only achieve these results with parental and family support and we would like to say a big thank you to all of the families who support us and their children – without this being a team effort, we would not have the progress and success that our children achieve.

Our priorities for 2016/17 and beyond are to improve the attainment of EGPS and writing by adapting our curriculum and creating ‘learning journeys’. This began in Sept 2016 and we have had support from external consultants and moderators.

2016: Context of cohort:  49 children; 23 girls/ 26 boys. 28 disadvantaged (57%). 12 children (24%) SEND, inc 2 EHCP (RoL) although it was actually 3 (one child was not recorded on census at E).

 4 children have no KS1 data, meaning we cannot show their progress from KS1 – this could be that that they did not take KS1 SATs for a variety of reasons. KS1 ave score: 15.2 (-0.5 national) meaning the cohort were below national expectations at the end of Year 2.

1  This means that our progress was above National for Mathematics at +1.11 and we were in the top  20% of Junior schools nationally

2  This means that our progress was above National for Reading at +0.45 and we were in the top  30% of Junior schools nationally

3  This means that our progress was slightly below National for writing at -0.53 but we were still in the top 50% nationally.
