Early Years Foundation Stage                                                                                                          

Children in Reception should achieve a Good Level of Development (GLD) against the Early Years framework.

Year One Phonic Screening                                                                                                               

The phonics screening check is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. It will identify the children who need extra help so they are given support by their school to improve their reading skills. Children are tested in Year 1.

If children do not meet the standard in the Y1 phonics check they are retested in Year 2. The total result of children passing the phonics test in Y1 and Y2 is known as the Y2 cumulative result.

Key Stage One                                                                                                                                     

This is the first year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2.  These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014.  Therefore, results cannot be compared with previous years.  For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents from the Standards and Testing Agency. 

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science.  National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

The previous system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:

 Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2.

 Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum.

Key Stage Two                                                                                                                                     

Children in Year 6 also took part in the new testing and assessment arrangements. Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum was assessed and used to judge whether they were meeting the ‘expected standard, working towards it or working beyond it (at greater depth).  The new curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. 

In reading and maths their test results were converted to a ‘scaled score’ where 100 or more was at ‘expected standard’.

In writing the teacher assessed whether the pupil was working ‘at the expected standard’ or better.

Scaled scores are set between 80 and 120. 100 or above is ‘expected standard’, 110 or above is ‘working at greater depth’. The greater depth standard was set for the first time in 2016 by the Department for education to provide information about pupils across England achieving in the top 5%.

Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science.  For further information, please see the Information for parents KS2 leaflet from the Standards and Testing Agency.

Key Stage 2 Progress                                                                                                                         

Progress scores are calculated by comparing the key stage 2 test and assessment results of pupils at this school with the results of pupils in schools across England who started with similar assessment results at the end of the previous key stage – key stage 1.

  • A score above zero means pupils made more progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
  • A score below zero means pupils made less progress, on average, than pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.
  • A negative progress score does not mean pupils made no progress, or the school has failed, rather it means pupils in the school made less progress than other pupils across England with similar results at the end of key stage 1.

The majority of schools have progress scores between -5 and +5.

Floor Standard                                                                                                                                     

The floor standard is the minimum standard for pupil attainment and / or progress that the government expects schools to meet.

Meadowbrook is below floor targets on attainment and above on progress.

This means that Meadowbrook is ABOVE the floor standard.
