With the introduction of the New National Curriculum the government has changed the way that children in schools are assessed. This is a new way of thinking for schools and assessment looks very different to how it has done in the past.
Attainment will be reported differently than previous years; your child will no longer receive a level but will receive a teacher assessment at either:
Working towards the expected standard - Yet to be secure in the end of year expectation
Working at expected standard- Secure in the majority of the end of year expectations
Working above standard - Secure in almost all or all the end of year expectations and is able to use and apply their knowledge and skills confidently.
You can find out more about assessment at Sacred Heart in our Assessment Policy.
As well as the ongoing formative and summative teacher assessment, the children’s attainment and progress will also be measured at the following statutory points:
|Entry to Reception Baseline Assessment
||To assess the knowledge and skills that children bring to school
|End of EYFS (Reception)
||To assess the percentage of children achieving a good level of development
|Year 1 Phonics Screening Check

|End of Key Stage One (Year 2)
||To assess the percentage of pupils achieving the expected ‘national standard’ in Reading, Writing and Maths
|End of Key Stage Two (Year 6)
||To assess the percentage of pupils achieving the expected ‘national standard’ in Reading, Writing, Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling and Maths.
