Children sit their Key Stage 2 SATs at the end of Year 6.
Most children are expected to achieve level 4 in English and maths. This is called an “age related expectation” (ARE). More able children are expected to achieve level 5 or above in English and maths.
The full results for Year 6 pupils at Durand Academy in 2015 and 2014 are detailed below:
Building on our success in previous years, Year 6 Durand pupils again performed well above the national averages in 2015. More than 90% of pupils achieved Level 4 or above (an average level for most 11 year olds) in reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar (SP&G) and maths.
In maths, Durand Academy students performed especially well, with 98% achieving Level 4 or above. This is in contrast to a national average in 2014 of 86%. In reading 96% of pupils achieved Level 4, in SP&G 94% of pupils achieved Level 4 and 92% achieved the same level in writing.
The graphs below illustrate Durand Academy pupil’s success this year and last at Level 4 or above compared to the 2014 national average.
A significant proportion of our Year 6 pupils achieved above average results and reached Level 5, the level typical of most 13 year olds. As the graph below demonstrates, around 60% of Durand Academy Year 6 pupils are working at levels typical of children two years older than them.
Both the Level 4 and Level 5 results show that in reading, writing, SP&G and maths, Durand Academy pupils are achieving results far higher than the 2014 national averages.
