KS1 SAT scores(49 Posts)
Okay I know this is a smug post but I can't exactly go round telling all and sundry in real life so the internet is getting it.
DS's SAT results are really good, I mean he was predicted to exceed expected standards or whatever the correct terminology is, but I didn't expect him to get nearly everything right.
Thanks for listening, as you were .
very very proud mum
Blimey. That is good. Maximum is 115? Well done your ds.
You should be really proud of him. Well done to your DS.
Congrats OP. Sorry to be nosy but how did you find out your results? My DC is y2 and we haven't been told anything. Is it automatically told to all parents or did you have to ask. Does it have anything to do with standardised scores. Sorry so many questions you can tell I'm confused. Any way congrats.
Hi Baby, we got his school report on Monday which had the basic outline results for the SATs (3x working at greater depth at expected standards) so curiosity got the better of us and we asked what his score was . His teacher gave us a price of paper with Maths 60/60, SPAG 40/40 and reading 37/40. I did a bit of googling to convert to the scores.
DS goes to a state school that was designated failing a few years ago and had a pretty poor OFSTED this year so his teacher is rightly chuffed to bits
though probably not as proud as me
That's brilliant you must be so pleased. I think will ask. We have already had the school report which included the standardised scores but I think that's different. Anyway well done.
Thanks, I am really pleased. Hope you get the results, I think some schools can be reticent about giving them out.
We're in the same position Blip. Dd achieved three scores of 115. Trying to work out next steps, we don't think she is being challenged enough at school.
Massive congratulations to your DS! :-)
Awww well done! Isn't it awful we have to keep it to ourselves! Can I join in too? My DS6 did fab too, Maths 114, Reading 113 and SPAG 114!
I had to ask for results though as we just got told GDS xx
Congratulations to your DC, great scores!
I know what you mean JoshLyman, not being challenged is an understatement but I'm not really sure what to do. The thing with the school is that although it has a poor reputation that is mainly historic, the OFSTED wasn't great but it wasn't catastrophic either. But these factors and the fact that it is situated in a council estate is making it very unpopular with the generally middle class populace of our area. This has actually worked to our advantage as class sizes have remained small (22 in DS's class). Unfortunately they are planning to mix his class with year 4 next year bringing the class size up to 30 of very mixed ability DC. DS loves school and has never complained of being bored, I think if that happens we really will have to consider other options.
We just got told 'exceeded expectation' in Maths and English (not broken down) last year for ds2 who is very bright. I wish I knew now, but anyway....it could all change by the time it means something (ie. GCSEs/ A levels). Wouldn't want that pressure even if it's just in my own head.
My dc also exceeded expectation in all areas. What is the benefit of asking for the exact score and will the school think I am being precocious asking for the results?
The school must give you the results if you ask for them - ours just gave us the raw scores and I looked up how to find the standardised score.
DS is insanely competitive with himself so he really wanted to know how he did. He is not interested in anyone else's score he just wanted to know that he got the score he thought he deserved. I don't think the school judged us for asking, I don't really care if they do. Other than personal interest I don't know if there is any advantage to knowing the scores at this stage they are only 7 and as Marymarigold says it could all change.
Thank you Bli. Just noticed my bad spelling, especial precocious instead of precious .
I'm rightly proud of my son too.
I don't have his raw scores yet. I will ask.
He changed schools in May just before the tests.
I'm curious on how he "tests" i.e. stress and attitude.
I have his standardised scores. Are all raw scores a direct correlation to a scale so any child say scoring 55/60 gets a standardised score of say 111?
Or is age considered?
He got 110 reading and 111 maths.
Great link blip thank you.
So DS got 55/60 for maths and 35/40 for Reading. They didn't report spag so I will ask for this. He loves spag but then again I'm a pedant.
I was told by previous school he had met the expected standard back in February.
Needless to say his behaviour dropped (there were a myriad of reasons).
New school and he is happier and more engaged. Behaviour isn't perfect but his report praises his work ethic. One day he'll be proud of that!
He's mid June bday. His report purely states expected.
Blip one of the myriad of reasons was split class. It really let him down.
I'm dyslexic so the fact that a child of mine could get 100% in SPAG staggers me . DS is a pedant like his dad and loves SPAG.
I am nervous about the mixed class thing, but I think our only other option is the local prep but it would bankrupt us .
Just a consideration with prep/ private route...I would think about your child's competitive side, because it may be best NOT to foster this too much for him emotionally. (I've seen the consequences of this pressure in their teens). If it were me, I would try and challenge him in other ways eg. Karate, creative writing course, drama, music lessons, sports training etc. This will create simulation for him outside school, give him an outlet for competitiveness without it being too purely academic.
Thanks for the advice Merry, DS does do music, swimming and football out of school. I don't want to do so much that he is exhausted by the end of the week.
My son got 115 for each category too.. what next steps are there to take? Surely if they're doing well just keep things as they are?
Hmm, well I'm not planning his application for Oxford just yet but I am trying to make sure that my happy, confident little bobstays happy and confident and enjoying school. For me next steps involve finding a new music teacher and talking to the school about adequate challenges. They have a tendency to be very surprised when he meets their challenges easily which is not helping his growth mindset (they do far to much praising for cleverness and not enough praise for effort).
Well done to your DS 3x 115 is an outstanding result!
