Government has released information on new Primary School progress measures, in 2016 SATS were launched to reflect revised national curriculum. So what’s changed? Instead of measuring progress for individual students the new measures look at the progress at a school level. The enables parents to see how their school is performing. In order to calculate school level progress, pupils will be compared to achievements of other pupils across the country who had similar starting points.
This new process has two advantages;
- Fairer to schools, comparing pupils who are at a similar level.
- Recognising progress schools make with all pupils.
The full report and for more information links can be found within the online document on the Gov website.
