2016 was the first year of the new key stage 2 tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling which assess children against a national standard. The 2016 tests are the first tests to reflect the new primary curriculum, which was introduced in 2014. As this is the first year of the new tests the results will look different from those of previous years and cannot be compared with them directly.

In 2016 results in each test are reported using a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 represents the expected standard for each test. If a child gets a scaled score of 100 or more it means they are working at or above the expected standard in the subject. If your child gets a scaled score of less than 100 it means that they may need more support to reach the expected standard. The highest scaled score possible is 120, and the lowest is 80. You can find more information on scaled scores at www.gov.uk/guidance/scaled-scores-at-key-stage-2. As the new standard is higher than the old one, fewer children have met the new expected standard than the previous standard.
