Pupil performance improves at Key Stage 2, figures suggest

July 19, 2018

 

Pupils in Wolverhampton look set to have performed well at Key Stage 2 this year.

 

Unvalidated data released by the Department for Education suggests that 64% of pupils in Wolverhampton were at or above the expected levels in reading, writing and maths in 2017-18, a four percentage point increase year-on-year.

 

Nationally, the proportion of pupils at or above expected levels in the three areas has increased by three percentage points from 2017 to 2018, and now also stands at 64%.

 

In writing, the proportion of Wolverhampton pupils who are either working at the expected standard or at greater depth looks set to hit 80% in 2018, a 2% increase year-on-year and 2% above the national average.

 

In reading, indicative figures show 74% of Wolverhampton pupils reached the expected standard in 2018, up four percentage points year-on-year, while in maths 75% reached the expected standard this year. In both measures, Wolverhampton pupils are now just 1% below the national average.

 

Meanwhile, 78% of pupils reached the expected standard in grammar, punctuation and spelling, meeting the national average.

 

Councillor Lynne Moran, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: "Although this is still unvalidated data, the indications are very encouraging indeed and would amount to much improved results year-on-year.

 

"This is testament to the hard work of our schools, pupils and parents, and also shows the impact of the excellent work by our School Standards Team and local schools to raise educational standards still further.

 

"Educational outcomes are in important part of the inspection framework, and this year's performance also reflects the fact that more schools in Wolverhampton are now rated Good or Outstanding by Ofsted than ever before."

 

Pupils take national curriculum assessments in Year 6, at the end of Key Stage 2. The tests, often referred to as SATs, cover reading, maths, grammar, punctuation and spelling while teacher assessments also cover reading, writing, maths and science.
