Key Stage 1 and 2


Assessment Without Levels


There are no longer be levels in the school and Key stage 1 and 2 will be following the new ‘Assessment Without Levels’. There were new national tests at the end of Key Stage 2 for pupils in Year 6  last year and new national assessments for children at the end of Key stage 1, Year 2 last year aswell.  The expectations of the new National Curriculum have been raised.


Following the new National Curriculum, children are assessed against age-specific expectations for each year group throughout the year.  At parent / teacher consultations you will be informed about how your child is progressing and achieving in school. It is important to realise that the progress your child makes is separate to the age-expected level they are at.  We will let you know if your child is working within their current year group. Children will have ‘I can’  statements in their books to help them see what their next steps are throughout the year.


In the end of the academic year report, we will be letting you know how your child is working in relation to their current year group expectations.


Below are the terms you will see on your child’s report and what these mean, we will be using these terms to report to you on how your child is achieving in Maths, Reading and Writing
