Just seen [http://schoolsweek.co.uk/league-tables-2016-how-your-school-will-be-judged/?utm_content=bufferebe9c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer this article about how floor standards are to be judged]].
It looks like primary schools will be considered below floor standards if fewer than 65% of kids pass combined reading, writing and maths. And a coasting schools is one where fewer than 85% of kids pass reading, writing and maths. But nationally, only 53% passed. So pretty much every school will not meet floor standards and be considered coasting. I can't possibly have got that right, have I? Even for the government, this seems totally insane. And completely depressing.
Not really, because the 53% is a combined result from all schools. So some schools could have a pass rate of 98%, whilst others could have a pass rate of 18%. Some schools will have met floor standards but be considered coasting, some will be considered to be good, some will have marginally failed and some will have drastically failed.
That's before you get the nuances of a school which is really strong in 2 of the 3 areas but is dragged down by the third....
