Primary schools lowering KS1 results to have a greater KS2 value added score
A new research study conducted through an analysis of government data has unearthed a very concerning issue. Primary schools and teachers have been deliberately lowering the assessment scores of pupils at Key Stage 1 in order to show a bigger improvement and a better overall performance by the school.
Basically by artificially lowering students achievements at KS1 it allows a school to have a higher Key Stage 2 valued added score.
The direct comparison which has highlighted this has been made between primary schools with KS1 and KS2 pupils and infants schools with just KS1 where there would be no gain from doctoring results. The results show clearly that since 1998 pupils in infant schools have continually scored higher at KS1 than those in primary schools.
