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.
