 Independent school  privately funded.
 Maintained school  government funded and run by a local authority.
 Special school  schools that specialise in educating pupils with special educational needs.
Pupils are 'meeting the expected standard' if they achieve a 'scaled score' of 100 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teacher assesses them as 'working at the expected standard' or better in writing. For a more detailed explanation, see Scaled scores at key stage 2, Key stage 2 teacher assessment and Primary school accountability.
These scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
The scores are calculated by comparing the key stage 2 test and assessment results of pupils at this school with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with similar assessment results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 1.
A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
A negative progress score does not mean pupils have made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 1.
The majority of schools have progress scores between 5 and +5.
See School performance tables: about the data for more information about how the progress measures are calculated.
Confidence intervals
It is difficult to say with certainty how much of the progress scores are down to the school (which may have scored higher with a different group of pupils) and how much is down to the pupils (for example some may have performed well at any school). The confidence intervals reflect this uncertainty. If the confidence intervals for two schools overlap, then we can't say for certain that the two progress scores for these schools are significantly different.
Generally speaking, the greater the number of students, the smaller the range of the confidence interval. For smaller schools, the confidence interval tends to be larger, since fewer pupils are included, and therefore the score will be more greatly impacted by performance of individual pupils.
A school is above average if their progress score is above 0 and the whole confidence interval is above 0. Similarly, a school is below average if their progress score is below 0 and the whole confidence interval is below 0.

Pupils are ‘achieving at a higher standard’ if they achieve a ‘scaled score’ of 110 or more in their reading and maths tests, and their teacher assesses them as ‘working at a greater depth within the expected standard’ in writing. This standard was set for the first time in 2016 by the Department for Education to provide information about pupils across England achieving in the top 5%. For a more detailed explanation, see Scaled scores at key stage 2, Key stage 2 teacher assessment and Primary school accountability.
This score shows how pupils performed in the key stage 2 reading test. This score is known as the reading ‘scaled score’. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The higher standard is 110 or more. For a more detailed explanation, see Scaled scores at key stage 2 and Primary school accountability.
This score shows how pupils performed in the key stage 2 maths test. This score is known as the maths ‘scaled score’. The score is an average for pupils in the school. The expected standard is a score of 100 or more. The high standard is 110 or more. For a more detailed explanation, see Scaled scores at key stage 2 and Primary school accountability.
