In 2017, a primary school will be coasting if:
- In 2015, fewer than 85% of KS2 pupils achieved level 4 in English reading, English writing and mathematics, and the school has less than the national median percentage of pupils who achieved expected progress in English reading and English writing and mathematics.
- 2015 progress medians: English reading 94 per cent, English writing 97 per cent and 93 per cent in mathematics.
- In 2016, fewer than 85% of pupils met the expected standard in English reading, English writing and mathematics, and the school achieves a progress score -2.5 in English reading or below -3.5 in English writing or below -2.5 in mathematics.
A school must fall below the coasting level for all three years (2015, 2016 and 2017) to be considered coasting.
