Exams and Key Stage Results

About the results

Learning is assessed in all classroom interactions. This informs our planning and delivery and requires a flexible approach.

We use a key when marking work which all adults and children understand. This helps to differentiate work which seems to be correct but has been heavily supported, from work which has been done independently.

The language of Assessment is used by all.

Progress Scores

The progress measures aim to capture the progress that pupils make from the end of Key Stage 1 to the end of primary school. They are a type of value-added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.

This type of progress measure rewards schools for making progress with all of their pupils, whether they are low-, middle- or high-attainers. Any increase in attainment achieved by each pupil is reflected in the school’s progress scores. This measure is a school-level accountability measure.

Progress is calculated for individual pupils solely in order to calculate the school’s overall progress scores.

A school’s progress scores in English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as the average of its pupils’ subject progress scores. These scores give an indication of whether, as a group, pupils in the school made above or below average progress in a subject compared with pupils with similar starting points in other schools.

Progress scores are calculated for individual pupils for the sole purpose of constructing a school progress score. Pupil scores are calculated separately for English reading, English writing and mathematics.
