Year 6 End of Key Stage 2

KS2

Attainment and progress at the end of KS2

Children undertake national tests (SATs) at the end of KS2. These are in English grammar, punctuation and spelling (EGPS), Reading and Maths. Writing is assessed through teacher assessment. 

The children receive a standardised score in their tests - this is a score out of 100 where 100 is average. The aim is for children to all score, at least 100. Then we know that they are on track with their learning and ready for secondary education. 

Children scoring below 100 are classed as being below age related expectations (ARE). Children scoring above 100 and 110 or more are deemed to be working above their ARE. 

All scores at the end of KS2 are measured from the score that the child achieved at the end of KS1. This gives a child a progress score i.e. if a child had a low starting point from a low score at the end of KS1, even if they did not manage to gain ARE they might exceed progress expectations. 

Progress is the key measure of how much learning has taken place in KS2. Progress scores range can be plus or minus depending on the progress that the group of children make.
