Post subject:  SATs score in Maths Appeal

Hi all
My DD failed her Kent Test by 1 point on Maths. The other 2 papers were high passes. We are appealing on the grounds that her Maths has improved. Her primary school does Mock SATS in Oct last year and Feb. The school headmistress has written a great letter in support of the appeal and used her SATs results from the tests as evidence. I have looked this up and have no idea in terms of context how good (or bad) her results are. Can anyone shed any light on what these scores are out of and why she considers them good? Thanks

These look like raw scores. I'm not convinced an appeal panel would understand them, unless perhaps one of its members happens to be a primary school teacher.

For appeal purposes, what would impress is a scaled score in the range 111-120 (100 being the average, and 120 the maximum).
Or a comment such as "significantly above the expected level", or "greater depth".

Her October test gives a scaled score of 103 and her February test 108 based on the 2018 scales.
