KS2 Attainment

Due to the Covid -19 pandemic national tests did not take place in the academic year 2019-2020.

The table below illustrates the performance of our KS2 (Year 6) pupils. It shows how Marchbank Free School performed in the academic year 2018-2019 

At the end of KS2, Year 6 pupils are assessed against the national curriculum by undergoing national tests.

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.

Please be aware that we are a small school and our class sizes fluctuate from year to year.  When our pupils numbers are less than eleven in any one cohort, our data is suppressed to protect individual identify.  All data is suppressed if the cohort in either, the ‘disadvantaged’, or ‘other’ pupil group, is fewer than six.
