  1. Hi

    What is the criteria for children to not be entered into the key stage 2 SATs? Is it if they are working at a level 2? Also do they still count towards percentages I.e. if they are not entered for the sats do we automatically go down to 96ish% so highest amount of level 4 s would be 96%?
  2. IIRC it's children working below the level of the tests. \in other words if the pupil concerned has no chance whatsoever of getting L3 then don't put them through the mill of sitting the tests.
    However, the pupil is still counted in your total; so you are correct on that point.
  3. if you download the ARA 2012 key stage 2, the details are in there. The tests are for level 3 to 5 and if the pupils are below level 3 by the time it gets to May, they won't suddenly be able to meet level 3 in the tests. Yes, they still do count towards your percentage - with very, very few exceptions (children arriving late into the English eduaction system - again, detailed in the ARA.
