EMLC Academy Trust

Jan Marshall, Chief Executive of EMLC Academy Trust, said: “It is the passion of EMLC Academy Trust to give every child the opportunity to attend an excellent school with outstanding teaching and leadership so they become the best they can be. It is our purpose, through the work of our academies, to support and stretch every child so that they make exceptional progress and build the skills and knowledge they need for higher education, work and life beyond school. Our successes this year are attributable to the commitment and dedication of the pupils, teachers and leaders, better teaching and learning, more rigorous monitoring of standards, new ways of capturing data regularly and robust moderation of pupils’ work.”

EMLC Academy Trust KS2 Results 2016

Key Stage 2 assessments are taken by all children at the end of Year 6, aged 11.  The 2016 Key Stage 2 assessments are the first which assess the new, more challenging national curriculum introduced in 2014. Results are no longer reported as levels, and each pupil now receives their test results as a scaled score in Reading, Maths and SPAG.  The scaled score runs from 80 to120 with 100 as the expected standard. Writing is teacher assessed, based on the standards in the interim framework, providing not only an expected standard but also those working at greater depth. The number of pupils reaching the expected standard in all three of Reading, Writing and Maths provide the combined figure.

Because of the changes set out above, figures for 2016 should not be compared with those for earlier years. They are arrived at in a completely different way.  The expectations for pupils at the end of Key Stage 2 have been raised. Given the differences in the curriculum and assessments, the levels used previously are not comparable with scaled scores or teacher assessment outcomes.

In Reading, the Trust average is 8% higher than the national figure, with 74% at the expected standard

In Writing, the Trust average is 9% higher than the national figure with 83% at the expected standard

In Maths, the Trust average is 7% higher than the national figure, with 77% at the expected standard

In SPAG, the Trust average is 8% higher than the national figure, with 80% at the expected standard

For the combined figure (Reading, Writing and Maths), the Trust average is 9% higher than the national figure with 62% at the expected standard
