I visited a school recently where Ofsted inspectors had commented with disapproval on the small amount of progress the children made in their tests at end of key stage 1 (age 4-7) and end of key stage 2 (7-11). This is a school with very high pupil mobility so that only a minority of the children took both tests at that school. The inspectors were uninterested in this information yet the comparisons they made were entirely invalid.
