NEWMINSTER KS2 TEST RESULTS SUMMARY - 2017

In 2016, the new, more challenging, national curriculum was assessed for the first time with new tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment. Results are now reported as proportions of students achieving the ‘expected’ standard and proportions of students reaching a ‘high level of attainment’ within the expected standard.

Students receive a scaled score (80 - 120) with 100 being the score required to reach the expected standard. A score of 110 or more is required to achieve a ‘high level of attainment’ in the reading, maths and SPaG tests. The writing element is teacher assessed and externally moderated.

Below is a summary of the outcomes for the Year 6 cohort at Newminster in July 2017 and national averages. The results highlighted in green indicate an improved outcome in comparison to the 2016 results, those in orange indicate outcomes the same as 2016.
