Progress measures: Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2 (2023)

Progress is measured by comparing a pupils’ end of Key Stage 1 SATs results to those they achieved at the end of Key Stage 2. The national measure for expected progress is ‘0’.  Anything below this is below national standards and scores above 0 demonstrate greater than expected progress.
