How Our Children Achieve

In 2016, the Key Stage 2 tests were completely revamped to reflect the greater demand of the remodeled National Curriculum.

We were extremely proud of how well our Year 6 children achieved, particularly in the headline measure of reading, writing and maths combined: 77% of the children at Strand achieved the 'expected standard' in all three subjects compared to 61% of children nationally and 29% of children at Strand achieved the 'higher standard' compared to 9% of children nationally.

The 'progress measure' for each subject is a statistical comparison between schools, where 0 is the national average. In 2016 the government has set the floor targets (the minimum standard required) to be -5 in reading, -7 in writing and -5 in maths.

The scaled score range runs from 80 to 120. On the scale, 100 represents the 'expected standard' for the age group.  Children with scores of 110 and above were working well above the 'expected standard'.
