Performance data

At the end of Key Stage 2 children are judged to be either working at the expected standard or not. Some children may be judged to be working above the expected standard.

The table below shows the percentage of children achieving the expected standard and the percentage achieving a ‘high’ level of attainment. A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.

Reading KS2 :

Expected standard – 77%
Greater depth – 27%

Writing KS2:

Expected standard – 85%
Greater depth – 33%

Maths KS2:

Expected standard – 82%
Greater depth – 31%

Combined KS2:

Greater depth – 74%
Greater depth – 13%

* For a pupil to achieve the expected standard in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 100+ in the corresponding tests.

* For a pupil to be working at greater depth in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 110+ in the corresponding tests.

The average scaled score at Parkstone Primary School for reading is 106.1

The average scaled score at Parkstone Primary School for maths is 104

* Average progress made in KS2

National average progress is always 0. Schools that make less progress receive a negative number rating, schools that make more progress receive a positive rating.

Average progress in reading 1.7

Average progress in writing 2.8

Average progress in maths 0.3
