Data from 2016 onwards is based on scaled scores. Year 2 and 6 children sit tests, for which they get a ‘raw score’ (the number of marks). The Standards and Testing Agency then provide us with a formula to turn these into ‘scaled scores’ (that can change each year based upon how well the country does in each test). If a child has a ‘score’ of 100 or more, they have achieved the national standard and if they are below it, then they are ‘working towards’ that standard. 






Ofsted also provides Governors and members of the public with data through its 'Data Dashboard'. This provides a snapshot of performance in a school, college or other further education and skills providers. You can access Ofsted's Performance Measures Website by clicking here.
