Allington Primary School

Primary School


Assessment in primary schools was reformed in 2016 and a new expected standard has been created which reflects a higher standard than that in 2015. Results are no longer reported as levels; each child receives their test results as a scaled score from 80 -120. This in turn is read alongside an attainment measure of the 'expected standard' in a given curriculum area.
In order to achieve the Expected Standard for Year 6, a pupil must have a scaled score of 100 or more in reading and mathematics; and have been teacher assessed in writing as ‘working at the expected standard’ or ‘working at greater depth within the expected standard’.
In order to achieve the Higher Standard at the end of Key Stage 2, a pupil must have a high scaled score in reading and high scaled score in mathematics; and have been teacher assessed in writing as ‘working at a greater depth’. A high scaled score refers to scores of 110 and over.
