2014 End of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) Results

Assessment under the ‘old’ national curriculum

National curriculum assessments at the end of key stage 2 are made through testing and teacher assessment, providing complementary information about pupils’ attainment. The tests are designed to show what pupils have achieved in selected parts of a subject at the end of each key stage. Teacher assessment is a teacher’s judgement of each pupil’s performance in the whole subject over the whole academic year.

In 2014, there were statutory externally marked tests in reading, mathematics and grammar, punctuation and spelling. In addition to the standard tests for national curriculum levels 3 to 5, externally marked level 6 tests were also available for more able pupils.

 

Attainment:

Level 4:

In 2014, Level 4 was the national expectation for the end of Year 6. We always aim for every Year 6 child to attain at least Level 4 in Reading, Writing AND Mathematics. Very few children leave Clavering without attaining Level 4 in these subjects.

We expect our Level 4+ results in Reading, Writing and Mathematics to be better than the national averages.

Clavering: 95%

National: 79%

Level 5:

In addition, we ensure that our differentiated curriculum provides our ‘most able’, ‘high ability’ and ‘middle ability’ pupils with the opportunity to attain Level 5 (with some pupils attaining Level 6).

We expect our Level 5+ results in Reading, Writing and Mathematics to be better than the national averages.

Progress:

National curriculum standards have been designed so that most pupils will progress by approximately one level every two years. This means that by the end of key stage 2, pupils are expected to achieve level 4. Pupils are expected to have made two levels of progress between key stage 1 and key stage 2.
