The new assessment system – September 2015

 

Early Years

 

Assessment during the Early Years Foundation Stage (F2/Reception) follows the ‘Ages and Stages’ that are an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Each child is assessed using evidence that is observed in school alongside information from parents and carers. From September 2015 all children starting F2/full time school will be assessed on a nationally approved Baseline Test. We have used the Early Excellence Baseline assessment along with other schools in our family. All of this information is used to make a judgement of an individual child’s development across the 17 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This information is regularly discussed with parents so that they are aware if their child is working at, above or below national age related expectations and how home and school can work together to support their child in the next stage of their development. Details of national age related expectations starts full time school and at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage are available below.

 

We expect that all children who are working at or above national age related expectations will continue to make good progress and remain at this level with some children who were at national age related expectations starting to work above national age related expectations. Children who are working below national age related expectations will also have their progress monitored carefully. Many of these children will be expected to reach national age related expectations in all or some of these 17 areas. Children with special educational needs will have their progress and attainment discussed in greater detail at their termly reviews involving parents/carers, class teacher, special educational needs co-ordinator and other professionals working with them.

 

Year 1 and 2

 

The same principle applies to assessment in Years 1 and 2.  At Meadow Lane we have worked closely with our colleagues from the Chilwell Family of Schools to develop an Assessment Framework that can be followed from the beginning of Year 1, when pupils first start working on the National Curriculum, to the end of Year 11 when pupils will have completed their GCSEs. National age related expectations for the end of Year 1 and 2 are available below along with a summary of the Assessment Framework.

 

A child who is judged to be working at national age related expectations is described as ‘securing’. A child will be making good progress if they continue at this level throughout their school career and we expect some children to start to achieve above national age related expectations and to continue at this level. A child who is judged to be working above national age related expectations will be described as ‘mastering’ with a few very exceptionally gifted and talented children described as ‘excelling’. Again a child will be making good progress if they continue at this level throughout their school career.  A child who is judged to be working below national age related expectations will be described as ‘developing’ if they are accessing the National Curriculum but are not quite achieving the required standard. If a child is only able to access the National Curriculum for their age with additional adult support they will be described as ‘establishing’ and if they require a personalised curriculum to meet their developmental needs they will be described as ‘supporting’. Children who are ‘supporting’ may have special educational needs as may some children who are ‘establishing’. Again a child will be making good progress if they continue at this original level throughout their school career but we expect some children to start to achieve national age related expectations and to continue at this level. Children with special educational needs will have their progress and attainment discussed in greater detail at their termly reviews involving parents/carers, class teacher, special educational needs co-ordinator and other professionals working with them.

 

Assessment judgements for all year groups in the Early Years foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are regularly moderated with staff from other local primary schools to ensure their accuracy.
