Ofsted inspectors are now using the DfE 2013 floor standards when they inspect primary schools. At inspection they will compare a school’s 2013 performance data with the 2013 floor standards for achievement and progress. To be judged as above the floor standard for progress, schools just need to exceed the median percentage for one of reading, writing or mathematics. A school will be judged as being below the floor standards when all of the following apply:
- less than 60% of pupils achieve Level 4 or above in all of reading, writing and mathematics
- less than the median percentage (91%) make expected progress in reading
- less than the median percentage (95%) make expected progress in writing
- less than the median percentage (92%) make expected progress in mathematics.
The 2013 requirement for 60% of pupils to achieve Level 4 or above in reading, writing and mathematics is more challenging than the 2012 target of Level 4 or above in English and mathematics. However the 2014 target will be even more demanding as the percentage of pupils expected to achieve Level 4 or above is rising to 65%.
