Southcoates Primary Academy
Key Stage 2 (KS2) results
In May 2016 the children in Y6 took the new Government SAT tests. These tests were designed to provide greater challenge to children. The table below shows the percentage of children that achieved the ‘age related expectation’ (ARE) in our school and the percentage that achieved a higher standard (ARE+). It also shows a ‘progress score’ in the final column.
To meet the expected standard (‘floor standard’) a school should have 65% of its children achieving ARE for ‘Reading, Writing & Maths combined’ OR meet the progress score measure in reading, writing and maths.
Progress scores must be better than:
Reading: 5.0
Writing: 7.0
Maths: 5.0
Although we did not meet the floor standard for ARE, we did meet the progress score measure in all 3 of the subjects – as such Southcoates is ABOVE the floor standard for the academic year 2015 – 2016.
