KS2 Progress Measures

The progress measures are a type of value added measure which means that pupils' results are compared to the actual achievements of other schools nationally with similar prior attainment and come in the form of scaled scores and school progress measures.

Scaled scores are reported between 80 and 120, with 100 as the national standard.

Progress scores are for the school only, not individual pupils and are a measure of the pupils' progress from KS1. A score of 0 means that pupils in school on average do as well at KS2 as those with similar attainment nationally. A positive score means pupils do better whereas a negative score means that pupils make less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.
