Progress measures aim to capture the progress that pupils make from the end of infants (end of Year 2) to the end of juniors (end of Year 6). They are a type of value added measure which means pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment. The school’s progress scores are calculated as its pupils’ average progress scores. The school level progress scores are presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.

  • A score of 0 means pupils in this school do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A positive score means pupils on average do better at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
  • A negative score means pupils do less well at key stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally.
