High expectations and great enthusiasm for learning is reflected in children of all abilities achieving well at Primrose Lane.
2022 end of Key Stage 2 outcomes
The government has not published Key Stage 2 data for the 2021-22 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance due to the disruptions in education caused by Covid.
65% of pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics, higher than the national figure of 59%
19% of pupils achieved the high level of attainment in reading, writing and mathematics, compared to 7% nationally
Average scaled scores
Another measure used to analyse the assessment data is average scaled scores. ‘Scaled scores’ are the scores given to each pupil based on the test score, where 100 is the expected national standard (80 is the lowest possible, 120 is the highest). Again, Primrose Lane pupils faired better for each subject than the national average:
Average scaled score in reading: 109 (national: 105)
Average scaled score in mathematics: 107 (national: 104)
The Department for Education measures progress from Key Stage 1 (KS1) to Key Stage 2 (KS2). Expected progress is zero, with anything above that being better than expected and negative numbers showing less than expected progress.
Average progress in reading: 3.2
Average progress in writing: 0.2
Average progress in mathematics: 3.6
‘Performance data for 2022 should not be directly compared with 2019 and earlier. Nor should comparisons be made between schools. This is because schools may have been affected differently by COVID-19.’ (Inspection Data Summary Report, Ofsted website)
2019 end of Key Stage 2 outcomes
70% of pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics, higher than the national figure of 65%

Average progress in reading: 1.5
Average progress in writing: -0.4
Average progress in mathematics: -0.5
Average scaled score in reading: 106 (national: 104)
Average scaled score in mathematics: 105 (national: 105)
All our results include pupils who are disadvantaged or who have additional learning needs, eg special educational needs and disabilities, or other needs which may create barriers to learning, eg social, emotional and mental health issues. We are very pleased with the achievement of these particular pupils and how their individual success reflects on us as an inclusive school.
