At the end of a Key Stage children are judged to be either working at the expected standard or not. Some children may be judged to be working above the expected standard.
At KS1 assessment is based on the class teacher’s assessment of the children’s ability. At KS2 children’s raw test scores are converted to a scaled score, where 100 is the national expectation.
In May all Y6 pupils complete end of Key Stage 2 tests.
The results of these test are used to measure the individual progress a pupil has made in their time at primary school.
Children are assessed in maths, reading and grammar and punctuation & spelling. Writing is assessed using teacher assessment of pupils’ writing over a number of pieces of work, measured against a list of statements.
The table below shows the percentage of children achieving the expected standard and the percentage achieving a ‘high’ level of attainment. A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.
Key Stage 2 assessments
* For a pupil to achieve the expected standard in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 100+ in the corresponding tests.
* For a pupil to be working at greater depth in reading and maths they must achieve a scaled score of 110+ in the corresponding tests.
The average scaled score at Wheeler Primary School for reading is 104
The average scaled score at Wheeler Primary School for maths is 106
The average scaled score at Wheeler Primary School for GPS is 107
* Average progress made in KS2
National average progress is always 0. Schools that make less progress receive a negative number rating, schools that make more progress receive a positive rating.

Average progress in writing +2.2
Average progress in maths +2.3
I think the best thing about being a Wheeler pupil is that all of the staff listen and care about you
Everyone cares for each other and that every teacher adds a little bit of fun into every lesson
The staff are really encouraging. They always help us to be the best we can be
The best thing is having someone to go to when you’re upset
