Pupil Outcomes

End of Year Pupil Outcomes 2018 - 2019                

In 2016, the new more challenging National Curriculum, which was introduced in 2014, was assessed by new tests and interim frameworks for teacher assessment. Results are no longer reported as levels: each pupil receives their test results as a scaled score and teacher assessments based on the standards in the interim framework.

The table below shares pupil outcomes at Mount Pleasant 2018-2019 and compares them with national figures which are available to date. This year 68% (an increase of 10% from the previous year) of Mount Pleasant children achieved the combined score of Reading, Writing and Maths, compared to 65% National.   A summary of each area is described below.

Expected Standard                       

By meeting this standard, pupils are performing at the appropriate age related expectations with a scaled score of 100.

High Standard           

By meeting this standard, pupils achieve higher than the national age related expectations with a scaled score of 110+.

Average Scaled Score

Pupils raw test scores are converted to scaled scores with a 100 scaled score equating to meeting national expectations.  On average MPPS children achieved a score of 102 for Reading, 105 for Maths and 105 for Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling.

Progress Score

Progress score of 0.0 means that on average pupils do as well as other pupils nationally with similar starting points. A positive score means that on average pupils do better than national and a negative score means pupils on average do worse than other pupils nationally.

A scaled score indicates the average mark achieved in the test papers with 100 being at age-related expectations. A score above 100 means that on average, pupils achieved better test scores than the national age-related expectation.

Please note that due to covid-19, no statutory assessments took place in 2019-2020, therefore the published results are from the year before.
