At Christchurch Junior School we continually monitor children’s progress and learning. Teachers will assess your child’s progress by marking written work, observing practical tasks, listening to reading, talks and discussions as well as setting tests to measure their learning. We aim to identify children’s achievements and set targets for future progress.
Key Stage 2 teacher assessments 2015
At the end of Year 6, teachers make assessments of every child’s progress and achievements in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Science. These assessments are based on the teacher’s knowledge of each child, drawn from a wide range of contexts and built up over time. Level 4 is the expected standard for children at Key Stage 2. These are our teacher assessments:-

National Curriculum Test Results (SATs) 2017
At the end of Year 6 all our Year 6 pupils take the National Curriculum Tests (SATs). Below are the results from the National Curriculum Tests taken in May 2016.
The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is between 80 and 120
- 80 is the lowest scaled score that can be awarded
- 120 is the highest scaled score
A pupil awarded a scaled score of 100 or more has met the expected standard in each test.
A pupil awarded a scaled score of 99 or less has not met the expected standard in the test.
It is important to note that the tests do not assess the whole of a subject e.g. speaking and listening, practical enquiry skills etc. This explains why nationally the test results are not exactly the same as teacher assessments.
