Assessment

The government has removed National Curriculum Levels for describing pupils’ attainment.

For reading, writing and mathematics, children work towards end of year expectations.

In each year, we follow the curriculum for that year group e.g. the Year 1 Curriculum, the Year 2 Curriculum and so on. As children progress through the curriculum for their year, we have identified 3 steps as follows: ‘entering’ the curriculum, ‘developing’ the curriculum and ‘securing’ the curriculum. These steps provide descriptors for the benchmarks we feel children should reach on their way to achieving the end of year expectations (these correspond, loosely, to termly progress).

It should be noted that these expectations are (especially in KS2) considerably higher than those of the previous National Curriculum and, hence, there will be many children still working towards the previous year group expectations.

Our aim is to track pupils against the new curriculum by using the language of ‘emerging’, ‘expected’ and ‘exceeding’ age related expectations.

If your child is in a different year group, it is only the content of the curriculum that will change and these expectations will remain for each year group.

So if your child is progressing at age related expectations they will reach the ‘expected’ stage at the end of each term, and by the end of the year be at ‘secure expected’.
