What is school performance data?
School performance data is statistical information showing how well pupils in England have done in public examinations taken at key points in their educational journey. Data is published for children's attainment in national curriculum tests, often known as SATs, which are sat at the end of primary school at age 10 or 11.
For each of the tests, children are awarded a ‘raw’ score (the number of marks gained) and this is converted to a ‘scaled’ score. Scaled scores range between 80 and 120, with 100 representing the expected standard in each test. Children receiving a scaled score of 100 or more are working at or above the expected standard in the subject. Results of English grammar, punctuation and spelling tests are not taken into account in these floor standards.
