Achievement

In 2020 there were no standardised tests due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Results are reported as proportions of students achieving the ‘expected’ standard and proportions of students reaching a ‘high level of attainment’ within the expected standard.

Students receive a scaled score (80 - 120) with 100 being the score required to reach the expected standard. A score of 110 or more is required to achieve a ‘high level of attainment’ in the reading, maths and SPaG tests. The writing element is teacher assessed and we were externally moderated this year.

Below is a summary of the outcomes for the Year 6 cohort at GEMS in July 2018 and 2019 and national averages.
