KS2 SATs scores explained
In Key Stage 2 each Year 6 child was awarded a raw score and a scaled score.
The range of scaled scores available for each KS2 test is the same, this year and in future years:
80 is the lowest possible scaled score
120 is the highest possible scaled score
A scaled score of 100 or more means that the child has met the expected standard in each test; a scaled score of 99 or less means they haven't reached the government-expected standard.
In 2016 the average scaled score was above the "expected standard": in reading the average scaled score was 103, in maths it was 103 and in grammar, punctuation and spelling it was 104.

Grange Primary School Curriculum
Over the last two years we have been developing the curriculum that we provide for our children. Our main aim is to provide exciting, stimulating topics which the children become fully absorbed in using a cross-curricular approach. We strive to encompass many curriculum subjects into each topic, making them relevant and meaningful for our children.

Grange Primary School Vision, Values and Aims
Grange Primary School
Grow, Persevere, Succeed
Be the best you can be!
Grange Primary school is at the centre of the community, being a happy, inclusive and positive school where everyone (children, staff, parents and carers, governors and the wider
community) works together in an effective partnership.
Our school community ethos is one of mutual respect, understanding and care for all. In everything we do we accept challenges with a positive attitude, always try our best and have the highest aspirations for ourselves and each other.
Children leave Grange as confident, independent individuals with clear dreams and aspirations and the skills, enthusiasm and sense of self-worth to continue their journey to achieve these and to become responsible, respected and valuable citizens in our community, our town and the wider world with strong moral values and beliefs.
Our Core Values:
For all members of Grange School Community we want to develop and embed our agreed core values and:

Grange Primary School Complaints Procedure
We really do appreciate feedback from parents/carer, so do feel free to let us know what has gone well or what would make things even better. Our doors are always open, and we try our best to be as approachable and as welcoming as we can, so please do not hesitate to come in and discuss any concerns, however minor they may seem with the most appropriate person. We would much rather tackle any concerns at the earliest stage, to resolve the concern and reduce the possibility of them becoming a formal complaint.
If, in the hopefully unlikely situation that you do have a complaint, the procedure is detailed in the document below.
We do carry out regular questionnaires to find out about how you feel about the school and give you the opportunity to express your views. We also encourage parents to update the parent view site, as and when they want to. This is something that Ofsted will look at when they carry out school inspections. The website address is https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/
Parents/Carers are invited to respond to children's annual reports and we also have a suggestion box which is located in the main school entrance.
If you have any other suggestions about how you would like to share your views, please do let us know.
