We are really pleased with our results again this year as the data is continuing to show an upward trend over a three year period.
The 2017 KS2 SATs are the second year of the newly designed tests and assessments. We have had another very successful year at Malmesbury Park. Our Key Stage 2 is now showing that we perform above the national average whilst at Key Stage 1 we are below. However, we have shown a significant improvement at Key Stage 1 this year and are certain that this will continue to improve.

The new progress measures, introduced in 2016, are a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.
This type of progress measure rewards schools for making progress with all of their pupils, whether they are low, middle or high attainers. Any increase in attainment achieved by each pupil will be reflected in the school’s progress scores. They are fairer to schools in challenging circumstances, as they recognise a school that is doing a good job with an intake with poor prior attainment.
- A score of 0 means pupils in this school on average do about as well at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
- A negative score means pupils in this school on average do worse at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
As can be seen in the table below we have achieved a positive score in all three areas meaning that children at Malmesbury Park Primary School do better at KS2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
|Reading||+2.4 (above average top 20% of all schools nationally)|
|Writing||+1.5 (above average – top 20% of all schools nationally)|
|Maths||+2.6 (above average – top 20% of all schools nationally)|
