Assessment Information

During the year, your child’s progress is continually assessed and then they are taught their next steps. In the Summer Term, the children are assessed against the National Expectations for their age group. At the end of Reception and Year 2 a judgement is made in various areas of their learning against prescribed expectations and their standard recorded. Your End of Year Profile will tell you whether your child is working: at the ‘Expected Standard’; towards the ‘Expected Standard’ (emerging in Reception); or at a greater depth (exceeding in Reception). The profile also explains what they need to work on to become more secure in areas and to move on in their learning.

Please see below the National Expectations for the end of Year 2 and Reception.
