In May all Y6 pupils complete end of Key Stage 2 tests. The results of these test are used to measure the individual progress a pupil has made in their time at primary school before moving on to their secondary school. These results (2017) are also used by Ofsted & the Local Authority to measure the success of the school against other schools nationally.
Results of Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs) for Wellow in Reading, Maths and Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (GPS), alongside Teacher Assessment in Writing are as follows: Children sitting key stage 2 tests in 2016 were the first to be taught and assessed under the new National Curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics. It would therefore be incorrect and misleading to make direct comparisons showing changes over time. (DfE SFR 5 July 2016)
