Some children work at a higher level than other children. In the past we thought of this as Level 5 or Level 6. Now we use the term “high level of attainment” or “working at greater depth”.

The percentage of children who are working at the expected level, and those who are working at a higher level, are then put on a sliding scale. The expectation is a scaled score of 100. As you can see, the school attained above the expectation in reading. There is no expectation or scaled score in writing.

Children’s progress is always measured against other children nationally. If any child makes the same progress as the national average for their group, that progress will be described as 0 (zero). Normally we think of zero progress as not being very good – but in this case, it’s actually average. Any negative number (-2.7, for example) is below average. However, children must be very much below average (by 5 points or more) before their progress is deemed to be unacceptable.
