Key stage 2 information – for the academic year ended summer 2016

As parents are aware, summer 2016 was the first year in which new tests were introduced for children at the end of key stage 2 (i.e. finishing year 6 in summer 2016).  These tests are based on the content of the new curriculum that was introduced in September 2014, and are of a higher standard than the previous tests.  Note that key stage 2 results are for pupils who, for the most part, finished year 6 in 2015. ‘These are the most important measures used to monitor school performance’ (DfE, 2015).

The tables below indicate the percentage of our Year 6 children who met the 'expected standard' in each of the areas tested (note that the 'writing' scores are teacher assessed only).  By way of comparison, the table also shows the percentage of children across the Local Authority of Newham as a whole that achieved this standard, as well as the percentage of all children in England in Year 6 that achieved this standard. In each individual area tested, the percentage of Selwyn children reaching the 'expected standard' is considerably higher than in Newham and across England.   

Across all areas tested, 78% of Selwyn children reached the 'expected standard' - against 59% across Newham as a whole and 53% across England. We are tremendously proud of the work that both our teachers, our support staff and our children have done to achieve these excellent results – well done!

The table below indicates the percentage of children at Selwyn achieving a level of knowledge and understanding in the subject concerned that is described as ‘greater depth’, against those who achieved the ‘expected standard’ across the local authority and all schools in England – i.e. they did even better than expected.

The percentage of our children who achieved ‘greater depth’ is significantly above the comparison percentages, at both local authority and national level, in reading, writing and GPS.  We are delighted that these results reflect the excellent achievements of our more able pupils, and congratulate them on their results.  Our maths scores are in line with the local authority achievement levels, and above national levels.

Across all areas tested, 10% of Selwyn children reached the 'greater depth standard' - against 7% across Newham as a whole and 5% across England. We are tremendously proud of the work that both our teachers, our support staff and our children have done to achieve these excellent results – well done!

The amount of progress our children make, as measured on a scale, is shown on the table below, and compared with figures from the local authority.  The figures are calculated using the pupils’ average scores for the relevant areas from the end of key stage 1, and comparing them to the average scores at the end of key stage 2.

Again, our children have made better progress than those across the local authority in both reading and writing, whilst progress in maths has been slightly below that across the local authority.

Key stage 2 information – for the academic year ended summer 2015

Note that the information presented below is a summary of the information provided by the Department of Education on the new ‘Compare school and college performance’ website, that can be accessed by clicking here.  The information presented above, for summer 2016, remains provisional, so has not yet been published on this website.

Headline measures of performance

At Selwyn, our KS2 results show that the achievement of our children in all these areas is significantly above both the local authority (Newham) statistic (84% achieved this level) and the national statistic (80% achieved this level). By contrast, 98% of Selwyn children achieved or exceeded the expected level across all areas tested.

Note that most pupils should be able to reach at least level 4 in each subject.

Pupil progress since key stage 1 (i.e. in years 3-6)

This table indicates that our children have not only achieved an excellent standard in their work, but they have also made excellent progress through KS2.  (Note that most children are expected to make 2 levels of progress during the KS2 years).
