% of pupils meeting the expected standard

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.

Progress score and description

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.

For a more detailed explanation, see Scaled scores at key stage 2, Key stage 2 teacher assessment and Primary school accountability.
