Because of the change of curriculum this year, it is no longer possible to make a direct comparison between a child's Key Stage 1 score (on the old levels) and their Key Stage 2 score (on the new scaled system).  The Department for Education has devised a way of converting the scores on to the same scale, and then measured each child's progress in comparison with children nationally who achieved at a similar level at Key Stage 1.  So, a child who made progress in line with the average for children of similar prior attainment would be awarded a progress score of 0.  Otherwise a child will be awarded a minus or plus score to indicate whether they achieved progress below or above the average, where the majority of children will fall within the range -5.0 to +5.0.  These scores are then aggregated to give an overall average score for the school.  Of course, within this average, there will be a wide range of different scores for individual children.  The average progress scores for Willow Bank Junior School in 2017 are shown in the table below.
