SATS Results 2020

National Scaled Scores Summer 2020

In Summer Term 2020 national SATS tests were cancelled due to Covid restrictions. The following information is based upon our internal testing processes, using Rising Stars Assessment. This is directly comparable to SATS data using the process of scaled scores to make the data equable.

The range of scaled scores available for each national KS2 test is between 80 and 120.  80 is the lowest scaled score that can be awarded and 120 is the highest scaled score and equates to 100%.

Pupils achieving at least a scaled score of 100 are considered to have met the expected standard of the test.

A pupil awarded a scaled score of 99 or below has not met the expected standard in the test.

The scaled scores nationally are as follows:

Reading 80-120
SPaG 80-120
Mathematics 80-120
