DD got a scaled score of 120 - (the max) in reading, 119 in spag and 110 in maths which she is gutted about.
I am so pleased and so proud of her, she got a fantastic report and heads to secondary a confident, happy, motivated child - I just hope she stays that way!!!

Well done, mini hilly, congratulations!! flowers wine cake chocolate and a star.

I am really pleased for you, you must be very proud.

A word of caution, please don't think I'm pissing on your chips, meant in the best possible way.
Be proactive at monitoring your last phrase, I had one of these last year, not academic though.
The year has been terrible and she has come in well below average in every sense.
I hope the outcome is better for your child.

The biggest barrier is not wanting to appear clever or swotty, it isn't cool.
Good luck, and well done to your dd, she sounds very gifted thanks

Wow - good for her! I hope you will be able to persuade her that 110 (90%) in maths is also really good grin.

(Can I join in and whisper very quietly that DD1 got eight prizes at year 9 prizegiving and I'm the proudest proud thing in proudville, but trying to play it very cool!)

Well done on your children! Long may these successes continue and may the whole child carray on developing into lovely adults.

grin Well done to your dd hilly, and also to yours chicken.

I am somewhat sceptical about the value of the SATS and I think that all this testing at 10/11 is totally wrong, but I'm very proud of dd's results - 120 in both the reading and the SPAG and 116 in maths. And thanks to her amazing year 6 teacher, very little stress along the

Just come on here to see what the sats results mean! DS did well and got 120, 119 and 114. He's bright especially at English, but he's never been called g&t. His entire class did well - it's a state London primary. Am hearing New Life's warning. He's due to go to a school we are not happy about (but top of waiting list for better school). Can imagine de motivation if he's in with less able children.

Well done little Radiator and Biscuit! Especially the reading and SPAG marks which are very impressive.

Kitkatmonster Fri 08-Jul-16 20:58:16

Also cannot speak of this in real life, but very proud of him all the same, 119 in both English and spag, 120 in maths. He's a bright cookie but we weren't expecting that. He picked dinner as a treat smile

Can I join in please. Am
Also bursting with pride. My 7 year old had tests (Wales). He's literally off the charts in the 2 numeracy tests. No English (officially) until next year.

Radiatorvalves Fri 08-Jul-16 21:23:16

Well done everyone!

My dd got 140+ for VR and NVR when she was in year 4 and 141 for NVR in an 11+, but I don't know if she counts as being g&t, as I have always believed in teaching her, so the results could be because of education rather than just genetic.

120, 119, 120
120, 117, 120

In terms of raw scores, older son dropped 5 marks in total (3 in grammar, 2 in reading); younger dropped 6 (4 in reading, 2 in grammar) - this meant that the one with more marks got the lower scaled score. Very useful for competitive twins.

And it's not that I "can't" talk about it elsewhere; I don't want to. I still think the system is bollox, and I hate what it's done to so many children's experience of primary school.

For what it's worth, my kids go to a bog-standard state primary. They and their peers have had a brilliant time in Y6 - loads of art, music and sport as well as the core subjects. They went on a week-long residential just before SATs. No endless practice papers. No trauma.

And, although we live in an 11+ area, my boys have had no tutoring, nor did they take the 11+. They're 'lucky', in that they have the kinds of brains that test well, the kind of background that means the vocabulary, for example, in the reading test didn't flummox them, and haven't had to deal with any particularly difficult issues at home. They'll be going to the bog-standard state secondary that's just round the corner, and we're all looking forward to seeing how that part of the journey works out for them.

The thing that makes me most proud about their end of school reports? They are kind. Thoughtful. Creative, sporty and generally well liked.

Nice to get all that off my chest... grin

My 10 year old managed to both flush and wash yesterday.


multivac Sun 10-Jul-16 14:22:44

I'm not sure I believe you stealth...

OddBoots Sun 10-Jul-16 14:24:15

Those are great scores, it is fab to see some children are doing really well despite all the rubbish the government is throwing at them.

stealtheatingtunnocks Sun 10-Jul-16 14:32:27

I am literally bursting with pride, Multi.

Of course, he didn't lift the seat, so pissed all over it and the floor...but, still, it counts.

multivac Sun 10-Jul-16 14:36:21

I think seat-lifting is only to be expected from the top 0.0002%.

stealtheatingtunnocks Sun 10-Jul-16 17:37:57

I'm signing him up for Cumon.

"Cumooooooon, would you just lift the bloody seat up!"

Oooohh... can I join in? There aren't many places I can express my pride.

We've been in Germany for this academic year and DD1 is in a German medium school. They grade against a central curriculum with the grades going Excellent, Good, Good with some errors...

My DD1 was placed in a class above her age mates (so she's three months younger than anyone else in her class rather than one of the oldest) and she got Excellent in everything except German and in that she got a Good!

Aimtomisbehave Thu 14-Jul-16 14:12:39

I don't have kids and have no idea what these numbers mean but am filled with a warm joyful feeling at how happy and proud you all are! Well done to all!!! grin

I'm sneaking in to say that my Y2 dd was working in greater depth in Maths, reading (both of which we expected), writing and science. Apparently she loves writing and is very expressive, and she is finding her voice (and sense of humour) in the classroom. She had been terribly shy and suffered from a bit of anxiety in earlier years, so we are very very happy. And I'm going to confess that, despite the fact they aren't important, i wish we had been given the SAT scores. I'm curious!!

irvineoneohone Fri 15-Jul-16 11:01:57

My ds got "working at greater depth" for 5 core subjects and best ever comment from teacher regarding his personality and behavior. I am so happy!

Ginmummy1 Fri 15-Jul-16 11:23:33

We're not in SATS world and haven't had end-of-year report yet, but I just wanted to say well done to all these awesome children and lovely parents!

Whatever level a child is working at, it's so nice to receive a report that is pleasantly surprising in some way or contains a meaningful personal comment from the teacher.

Sometimes the high achieving families can be made to feel bad about 'boasting', but these kids need as much positive reinforcement as any others. It's nice to find a 'safe' place for people to share their joy and pride.
