Expected and national curriculum levels


Guest

Recommended Posts

Just wondering about link between profile levels at end of reception and National curriculum levels at end of Y2.

If the children achieve expected in reception class then will it be expected that they will achieve a level 2B in Y2? Thinking of reading, writing, maths.

Welcome any words of wisdom on this please!

thanks

Well I think as a minimum if they are at expected levels of attainment at the end of 1 key stage they should be at expected levels at the end of the next as a minimum!! Otherwise what's everyone been doing in-between?? I think that would only be average progress however...

I have been working on an idea of if they get a 2 for the profile then they should get a 2 at the end of Y2. But that the majority should be 2B. I do confess to using some of past knowledge of what Y2 attainment looks like - especially when making my exceeding judgements. I do think 'can I see them getting a L3 at the end of Y2'? I don't know if that makes any sense.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I've taught Y2 so likewise I know the expectations at end of KS1. Obviously I want to be fair to the children and how hard they have worked this year.

I will be glad when I hand my final results in keep looking at them!!

I found this in the OFSTED Subsidiary Guidance - April 2014

 

33. The early learning goals do not translate precisely to National Curriculum levels. However, as a broad rule of thumb children who reach a good level of development at the end of the Reception Year ought to be reaching at least Level 2b by end of Key Stage 1. Children exceeding the early learning goals at the end of reception ought to be exceeding Level 2b at the end of Key Stage 1 and be reaching Level 2a as a minimum, and more likely Level 3.

 

I found it useful to gauge my own assessments as I was unsure about the exceeding level. I looked at the percentage we usually get in year 2 and worked back from there as a guide. I didn't want to under assess good children but likewise didn't want to create a problem looking at data in a couple of years time!
