Exam & Key Stage Results
The table below outlines our results and progress over the past 3 years.
KS2 Prior Attainment is based on a pupil’s results from their Year 6 SATs test at Primary School. The figure shown is their average across English and Maths converted into a points system. Our school consistently has a large number of pupils who have not got SATs results. In order to track the progress of these pupils they sit a recognised CAT test (Cognitive Ability Test) which tests for latent ability. The test result includes a retrospective SAT score which allows us to set targets the same as our prior attainment pupils. On the table below you can see progress 8 scores for both the official prior attainment pupils (P8) and all our pupils (P8 plus CAT tested pupils).
Progress 8 is the measure used by the DfE to show how well a school is progressing. A score of 0 indicates pupils are making expected progress across 8 subjects including English and Maths. To be included in this measure a pupil must have sat their SATs in KS2.
Attainment 8 is an average of a pupil’s best 8 results including English and Maths. This measure includes all pupils as it does not rely on prior attainment.
