Statutory Information

(September 2017)

2016 was the first year of the new Key Stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling.  The tests assess children against a national standard.  Last year’s tests were the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014 and as you will see, HJPS performed brilliantly in all subjects.

The Department for Education has introduced a new curriculum to be on a par with the best education systems in the world and they expect children to achieve higher standards than before.

Pupils’ results in each test will be reported using a scaled score.  A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test.  If you child achieves a scaled score of 100 or more it means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject.  If your child achieves a scaled score of less than 100 it means they may need more support to reach the expected standard.  The highest scaled score possible is 120 and the lowest, 80.
