This measure highlights any differences in the performance of pupils who, at the end of KS1, were low attaining, high attaining or performing at expected levels. We will show separately the results for each of these groups of pupils against key Performance Tables measures e.g. the percentage achieving Level 4+ and achieving Level 5 in English and maths; the percentage making expected progress in English and maths.

Prior attainment definitions are based on KS1 Teacher Assessment (using the KS1 Average Point Score) as follows:

  • Low attaining = those below Level 2 at KS1 (ie those with a KS1 APS < 12);
  • Middle attaining = those at Level 2 at KS1 (ie those with a KS1 APS >= 12 but <18);
  • High attaining = those above Level 2 at KS1 (ie those with a KS1 APS >= 18).
