School Performance Table
The primary school performance tables provide information on the achievements of pupils in primary schools, how they compare with other schools in the local authority (LA) area and in England as a whole.
The data can be viewed and downloaded from https://www.gov.uk/school-performance-tables section of the Department for Education website.
The tables show:
- results from the KS2 tests in reading, mathematics and grammar, punctuation and spelling
- KS2 teacher assessments in English, reading, writing, mathematics and science
- KS1-2 progress measures in reading, writing and mathematics
- KS1-2 value added
They also include key measures for sub-groups of pupils in each school, including disadvantaged pupils, low, middle and high attaining pupils, boys, girls, pupils with English as an additional language and pupils who have been in the school throughout the whole of years 5 and 6 (non-mobile pupils).
The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old.
Three main (or Prime) areas:
Personal, social and emotional development
Communication and language
Four specific areas:
Understanding the world
Expressive arts and design
SATS (Standard Assessment Tests) tests are given at the end of year 2, year 6 and year 9.
They are used to show your child's progress and attainment in school.
Key Stage 1
SATs take place in year 2 throughout May. Each child is teacher assessed in reading, writing (including spelling and handwriting), maths (including number, shape, space and measurement) and science. Your child's class teacher will set short pieces of work in English and maths to judge what level of ability your child is considered to be.
Key Stage 2
SATs take place in May and more formal than Key Stage 1. The tests which are taken in year 6 cover the three core subjects, English, Maths and Science. The papers are sent away to be marked with results being available before your child leaves primary school in July.
