During Reception our children are assessed against the Early Learning Goals as a continuation from on-going assessments in pre-School. It is expected that most children will achieve a "Good Level of Development" by the time they finish their Reception year.
National screening of children's phonic knowledge takes place in Year 1. Any child who has not met the expected standard is routinely supported and then re-assessed in Year 2.
SATs examinations are a national framework to measure the attainment and progress of individual children in key academic subjects. The results provide the basis of the school peformance tables which are used as the annual measure of how a school is performing in comparison to other schools.
Examinations are taken at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6). The national expected level of attainment is for children to be "working at the expected standard" at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
