Key Stage 2 results - for summer 2018

As yet, we are still not able to share our validated (or 'approved') SATS results for the academic year 2017/2018, but we are delighted to be able to share these provisional results:

  • In reading, 82% of the children met the expected standard (above the 75% national score)
  • In maths, 77% of the children met the expected standard (above the 76% national score)
  • In SPAG (spelling and grammar), 83% of the children met the expected standard (above the 78% national score)

Congratulations to staff and children for such excellent results in all areas.  A copy of the letter sent to parents in July 2018, which contains this headline information,  is available as a download on this page.

 

We will update this page with our validated results later in the autumn term, as soon as they are made available.   As our 2018/2019 cohort start their final Key Stage 2 year, we have met with parents and provided information re how to support their children through this process - this is available as a document to download on our Year 6 page.

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.
