End of Year Expectations

The links below will take you to our year group booklets which provide information for parents/carers on the end of year expectations for children in our school in reading, writing and mathematics. These are outlined in the National Curriculum and are the expectations which your child should meet each year. Your child’s teacher will plan and teach to these objectives throughout the year as part of your child’s learning.
When we assess the children, they may be 'working towards the expected standard’ for the year group or 'working at the expected standard’ for the year group (which is the expectation for the end of the year). When children become confident in the skills, they deepen their understanding by working at greater depth. This means they can show success at a skill in more than one way. It could also mean that they can apply the skill or knowledge in a variety of different situations. Examples of this are problem-solving in different contexts in maths or science, or using a literacy skill in different genres in writing. We then assess children as ‘working at a greater depth within the expected standard’ (this may involve children working above the expectations for their year group).
Please talk to your child’s teacher about how you can support your child's in working towards these expectations.
As well as academic achievement, we believe nurturing and supporting our children to be independent and caring young people is highly important. We  want our children to be the best that they can be, and foster their interests and talents.
