Academic ‘achievement’ is measured by a combination of ‘attainment’ (the national curriculum standard that a child has reached) and ‘progress’ (the measure of improvement a child has made, relative to his/her starting point, compared to children nationally, with a similar starting point).

Statutory Assessment Results 2023

The results, as set out below, include school achievement in the 2023 KS2 SATs compares with the national results, as well as the school achievements in Early Years Good Level of Development, results of the national Phonics screening and the end of Key Stage 1 assessments.

The combined Reading, Writing and Maths percentage shows those reaching the expected standard or above in all three areas.

Interpreting a school’s progress scores

A school’s progress scores for English reading, English writing and mathematics are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. This means that school level progress scores will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.

A score of 0 means, on average, pupils do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
