Table to show Outcomes for Key Stage 2  against National and LA Attainments 2016-17 

The table outlines the outcomes of our children for the academic year 2016-17.

The assessment protocol for this year was very different and parents may find the information below helpful to understand the data set.

  • Children are tested in Maths and Reading as well a separate Grammar,Punctuation and Spelling test
  • Writing is teacher assessed with some schools externally moderated by trained professionals. Mellor was externally moderated.
  • Nationally over the last two years attainment has significantly dropped due to the increased standard of expectation.
  • The progress of children on this year’s test was built upon outcomes from a different assessment regime.
  • The tested outcomes for Key Stage 2 are compared to teacher assessment outcomes at Key Stage 1.
  • The progress numbers are difficult to define but as a rule of thumb anything below -1 or above 1 would have some statistical significance.
  • Every class of children is very different in its make up.
  • The progress measure is very much related to the children’s starting points at Key Stage 1.

What conclusions can we draw from this data set?

  • Our reading, writing and maths scores were very positive in all areas. Writing was above the national average. Reading and maths in the higher part of the average range.
  • Our children’s attainment and average scores were higher than the National outcomes and very strong for this year group in all but the SPAG test (analysis showed that it was the spelling element which had affected the outcomes).
  • Our reading progress score showed improvement on the previous year.

What do we need to do to improve outcomes for children?

  • Continue to focus on raising standards in reading and maths.
  • Develop the understanding of spelling.
