Children’s progress in Reception is assessed in relation to 7 Early Learning Goals. A Good Level of Development refers to a summative assessment judgement which is made for each child at the end of the Reception year. It is a measure of attainment, not progress. Achieving a good level of development will help your child to make a good start in Year 1. A ‘good level of development’ or GLD is defined as reaching the expected level in the prime areas of learning (along with specific aspects of mathematics and literacy):
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
Year 1 children take a Phonics Screening Check to assess if pupils' decoding is at the expected standard for children their age.
At the end of Year 2, teachers assess children's attainment in English, Maths and Science. Pupils working at age-related expectations are assessed as 'Expected'. Children attaining more highly are assessed as 'Working at Greater Depth'.
Our pupils' outcomes for the 2021/22 academic year can be found below:
