My dd is really annoyed at the new system and I can totally understand 97% of her class achieved in reading but she's always been a very able reader probably one of the best in her class and she wants a score that shows how hard she works not be the same as virtually her whole class
Can the scaled scores equate to an old school level!
Horrendous here - 31% combined, but this was completely anticipated (95% EAL, high mobility, etc). I fully expect an inspection early next year but if they can show us how to do things better, I welcome them with open arms. Took an hour to compose a letter to the parents to the effect of "your child has worked their absolute socks off all year but is still at the bottom of the pile." Shame on you, Nicky.
If the national average is 53% and we can't compare to previous years as the tests were so different, will this impact the floor standard? I am a Governor and we have a meeting tonight. Think it might be quite depressing
Yip and 91% of the class for combined I know it's brilliant, but in fairness it's a leafy green slightly middle class c of e one form entry school with outstanding ofsted and this years group was also a bit better than an average year so they had everything going for them, I appreciate that as I've worked in schools that were the total opposite
