Interpreting progress scores

The progress score measures the progress pupils make from Year 2 through to Year 6.  Progress scores are centred around 0, with most schools within the range of -5 to +5.

 

  • A score of 0 means pupils at Beech Street, on average, do as well at KS2 as those children with similar prior attainment nationally
  • A positive score means pupils at Beech Street, on average, do better at KS2 as those children with similar prior attainment nationally. 
  • A negative score means pupils at Beech Street, on average, do not do as well at KS2 as those children with similar prior attainment nationally.

 

A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress, rather it means they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar starting points.
