In 2019 tests were reported as a scaled score. This scale went from 80 to 120. Children were deemed to have reached the expected standard if their scaled score was 100 or above. To find an average points score the scores of all children at Rackheath were added together and then an average was found. As you can see our average points scores (APS) were a point higher than the national average in reading and maths and a point below in Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS).

Another way a school’s performance is measured is through the progress the children make between being assessed in Year 2 and then Year 6. A child making average progress from their starting point at the end of Key Stage 1 would have a progress score of 0. Children making less than average would have a – progress score and those making above average progress would have a + progress score. The national average progress is 0.
