Key Stage 2 results for summer 2017

We are delighted to be able to share our validated Key Stage 2 results with parents. The results, which are compared with both last year's at Portway, and national results for 2017, are provided in the tables below.  Whilst we continue to focus our efforts on improving teaching and learning at school, we were delighted with the improvement that we have already seen evidenced by this year's results.

Attainment

Overall, we are delighted with the improvement from last year.  A 23% improvement in the number of children reaching the 'expected standard' (see explanation below) in reading was accompanied by a 10% improvement in the number of children reaching the 'expected standard' in writing, both of which we are delighted with.  Overall, the number of children reaching the 'expected standard' across reading, writing and maths increased by 19%, and, at 58%, is in line with the national average of 61%.

The table below indicates the percentage of children at Portway achieving the 'expected standard', against last year's results at Portway, as well as against national results in summer 2017.

We were similarly delighted with the results of the children who reached the 'greater depth standard'.  Again, the biggest improvement was in reading and writing, where an additional 10% achieved this standard in both these areas.

Overall, a total of 9% of our children achieved this 'greater depth standard' - up from 5% last year, and exactly in line with the national figure this year.

The table below indicates the percentage of children at Portway achiving the 'greater depth standard' aginst last year's results at Portway, as well as against national results in summer 2017.

Progress

The amount of progress our children make, as measured by scaled scores, is shown on the table below, and is compared with school figures from last year.  The 'progress' measure aims to capture the progress that pupils make from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2.

We wish to congratulate our children on achieving these results, and to thank our staff for the time and effort spent with the children in getting this result.

Key stage 2 information – for the academic year ended summer 2016

In 2016, the new more challenging national curriculum, which was introduced in 2014, was assessed by new tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment. Results are no longer reported as levels: each pupil receives their test results as a scaled score and teacher assessments based on the standards in the interim framework. Therefore, because of these changes, figures for 2016 are not comparable to those for earlier years. The expectations for pupils at the end of key stage 2 have been raised significantly. Given the differences from previous years to the curriculum and assessments, levels are not comparable with scaled scores or teacher assessment outcomes.

Results headlines

Results across both the borough and across England indicate that a lower percentage of pupils than in previous years met the expected standard in the areas tested (reading, writing, mathematics and GPS).  At Portway, our overall results indicated that 39% of our year 6 children met the expected standard or above, across all subjects, compared to 53% nationally (and 59% across the borough of Newham). 

Attainment 

The table below indicates the percentage of children at Portway achieving the ‘expected standard’, against those who achieved the expected standard across the Local Authority and all schools in England.

The table below indicates the percentage of children at Portway achieving a level of knowledge and understanding in the subject concerned that is described as ‘greater depth’, against those who achieved the ‘expected standard’ across the local authority and all schools in England – i.e. they did even better than expected.
