Children sitting key stage 2 tests this year were the third cohort to be taught and assessed under the new national curriculum. The expected standard has been raised and the accountability framework for schools has also changed. These changes mean that the expected standard this year is higher and not comparable with the expected standard used in previous year’s statistics.

Level 4: In 2015 74% of children attained Level 4 (or higher) in all three subjects. It is also useful to think about the breakdown between the core subjects of Reading, Writing & Maths. Proportions attaining Level 4 or higher are:
Reading: Level 4+ 90%
Writing: Level 4+ 84%
Maths: Level 4+ 84%
Level 5 or Higher: Level 5 is a higher level (broadly speaking most 14 year olds are expected to be working around Level 5 & Level 6).
Reading: Level 5+ 37%
Writing: Level 5+ 29%
Maths: Level 5+ 31%
