Harlands Primary School

kS1 and kS2 Results 2018

This is the third year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2.

These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014.

At the end of KS1 teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum tests are used to support teachers’ judgements. Attainment was  high in 2018. Harlands was above the national average for the expected standard (ES) in every subject in their year group.  Greater Depth (GDS) refers to working at greater depth within the expected standard.

Children in Year 6 also took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements.

The new curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2.

The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score where the highest score is 120 and the lowest is 80. A score of 100 represents reaching the expected standard. 

In Writing and Science, the children are assessed by TA teacher assessment.

Year 6 children were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation, spelling and maths and science.
Our results are, once again extremely pleasing especially in both Reading and Maths at GDS. Harlands pupils performed well, above the local authority and national averages in all subjects.
