About the results
Children in Year 6 sit KS2 SATs in Reading, Maths and SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). Writing is Teacher Assessed based on writing a child has undertaken throughout the year. SATs are marked using scaled scoring. Children will receive a raw score (the actual number of marks they achieved), which will be converted into a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 is the expected standard for children and a score of 110+ is working above the expected standard.
Most schools will have progress scores between −5 and +5. If a school has a progress score of 0 this means that on average their pupils achieved similar results at the end of KS2 (end of year 6) to pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1 (end of year 2). If a school has a positive progress score this means that on average their pupils made more progress than pupils in other schools with similar results at the end of KS1.
