  • Pupil Progress for 2017

    In the present assessment system  progress is measured with very small + or – numbers.

    0 is considered to indicate that the children at the end of KS2 have made expected or sufficient progress. However the National acceptable lowest result  or ‘Floor Standard’ for progress is  :

    • -5 for Reading, -5 for Mathematics and -7 for Writing
    • To be above the Floor Standard the school must be above all these three measures.

    Osbaldwick has been WELL ABOVE the National Floor Standard since the new curriculum and assessment system was introduced. Indeed in 2017 results in writing are in the top 25% of schools nationally.

    This represents better than expected progress and better than the average throughout the country.

    GPS- Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling 102.4 103
    Mathematics 102.7 104
    Average scaled reading and mathematics score 102.3
    Writing is not measured in this way – it simply a pass or failure to meet national standards.
    Attainment in Reading, writing and Mathematics combined 41% 53%
    Reading 59% 66%
    Writing 66% 74%
    Mathematics 59% 70%
    GPS 66% 72%

    Note: 15% of pupils in this year group had Special Educational Needs and were disapplied from the tests. However they are still calculated within the above percentages despite working well below age expected levels.


    The percentage of pupils achieving the expected standard is a combined measure across the three subjects. To be counted towards the measure, a pupil must have a scaled score of 100 or more in reading and a scaled score of 100 or more in mathematics; and have been teacher assessed in writing as ‘working at the expected standard’ or ‘working at a greater depth in the expected standard’.


    In 2016, a school will be above the floor if:

    • at least 65% of pupils meet the expected standard in English reading, English writing and mathematics; or
    • the school achieves sufficient progress scores in all three subjects. At least -5 in English reading, -5 in mathematics and -7 in English writing2.


    To be above the floor, the school needs to meet either the attainment or all of the progress element.

    The attainment element is a combined measure. This means an individual pupil needs to meet the ‘expected standard’ in English reading, English writing and mathematics, in order to be counted towards the attainment element.
