Average Points?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I've been asked to teach Reception in September after a colleague has been taken ill. I'm really looking forward to it (although original plan had been for me to stay in Year 1 and had organised myself for it).

 

I'm getting my head around the planning and all seems fine but have been told by the HT that the average child will only achieve 6 ELGs across each scale. Is this true? When I last taught Reception it was on the old ELGs but most children got 8's. A 6 seems low(ish) in my opinion - shouldn't I be aiming higher esp when I know what is demanded in Year 1? Anyone else heard of this?

Yes, a total of 6 points or more is the outcome used to demonstrate a child is working securely within the ELGs. 8 would be a child achieving all the ELGs and 9 working above the ELGs. A good overall level of attainment is 78 points including 6+ in all 7 psed/clld scales.

Hi Blue Sheep

An average child leaving F2 should have achieved 6+ in all areas, another indicator is 6+ in CLL + PSE aswell as a total of 78 points...any lower esp if still 1-3 should be SEN.

A lot will have achieved 8 points and possibly 9's too, it depends on the cohort, socio economic etc. In my school 6+ is hard to achieve in CLL (esp writing) but 8's are common in PSE, NLC and PD so as I said it all depends.

Yes, we aim for our children to reach scale point 6 in each of the 13 areas, and 78 in total. All of our LEA data is based around children achieving 6 points. They believe that is an 'average' child. Anyone achieving a 9 in any area is gifted and talented. Hope that helps! x

It's how the data for the DfE is organised and described within the national data set. It's also what the previous LA targets were based around so not the LA defining it - all LAs have to use this as the baseline for their outcomes.
