|Reading||71% (66%)||25% (19%)||104 (103)|
|Writing||76% (74%)||18% (15%)||N/A|
|Maths||75% (70%)||23% (17%)||104 (103)|
|RWM||61% (53%)||9% (5%)||N/A|
|EGPS||77% (73%)||31% (23%)||106 (104)
As can be seen in the table above national proportions and scaled scores increased in 2017, some quite significantly. This has had a knock-on effect on the VA model and some schools may be surprised by their VA scores if they have relied on calculations based on the 2016 model.
The SFR contains very little on groups other than by gender.
