It's finally results day, but what do the scaled scores means? Find out everything you need to know in this post. 

Today the year 6 children have gone home with an envelope containing their end of year report and their SATs results.

The gradings on the report are my teacher assessments. In a few cases my teacher assessment may be different from the standard they achieve on their SATs results. This can be for a number of reasons, for example: on the day of the test they may have been feeling unwell and not have performed to their true potential. Therefore, my teacher assessment maybe higher than their test result.

The children will receive a scaled score for their maths, reading and GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) test.

A scaled score between 80 – 99 means the child is working towards the expected standard.

A scaled score between 100 – 109 means the child is working at the expected standard.

A scaled score between 110 – 120 means the child is working at the greater depth standard.

The adults are all extremely proud of what the year 6 children have achieved. We had no tears, no wobbles and the vast majority of children tried their very best on all the papers. We cannot ask any more of them than that.

These results are not a reflection of them as people. It does not measure their sportsmanship, their musical talents or their ability to belly flop out of a kayak. The children I have had the pleasure of teaching this year are so much more than their SATs results.

We hope you all have a fun filled weekend.
