I am taking this opportunity to write and introduce myself as the new Assistant Head with responsibility for student progress, data and achievement. The first piece of news I have to share is student attainment in this years SATs.
Each test has a different number of questions and marks available. All test results have been converted to a common scale. It is this scaled score that will be reported to you. The scaled score gives an indication of how children have achieved against the nationally expected standard. A score of 100 represents the expected standard. Higher scores indicate higher achievement, while scores below 100 indicate that children have not yet met the expected standard for their age are likely to need some further support to ‘catch up’ as they move into secondary school.
You will receive test scores for each of the tested subjects:
- Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling
Teachers will also provide an assessment of student’s attainment in Science. As with Reading and Maths, the only judgement that can be made is to say whether or not your child has met the expected standard in Science.
Our results demonstrate that students at our Hindhead Campus are performing above the National average in all three areas of Reading, Mathematics, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (externally marked). Furthermore, student attainment in “meeting the standard across all areas” is well above the average. Congratulations to Year 6! A more detailed analysis of the results and how we compare to other Focus schools will follow in due course.
