Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) – Assessment InformationThe EYFS Profile summarises and describes children’s attainment at the end of the EYFS. It is based on ongoing observation and assessment in the three prime and four specific areas of learning, set out below:The prime areas of learning:
- communication and language
- physical development
- personal, social and emotional development
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
Children are defined as having reached a good level of development at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in:
- The early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language) and
- The early learning goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

The phonics screening check is a short, light-touch assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. It will identify the children who need extra help so they are given support by their school to improve their reading skills.
Pupils who do not meet the standard in year 1 or were not checked, must take part in the check at the end of year 2.
Below is a breakdown of our results for the Year 1 Phonics Screening.

End of KS1 Assessment Information
At the end of Key Stage 1, teachers use teacher assessment judgements to report on the progress of their pupils. These assessment judgements take into account a pupil’s performance in national curriculum tests (often referred to as SATs) in Mathematics, English Reading and English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Writing results are solely based on teachers’ assessments of pupils’ writing over time.

End of KS2 Assessment Information
If you have a child in year 6, at the end of key stage 2, they will take national curriculum tests in English grammar, punctuation and spelling, English reading and mathematics. The tests help measure the progress pupils have made and identify if they need additional support in a certain area. The tests are also used to assess schools’ performance and to produce national performance data. The key stage 2 tests will be taken on set dates nationally.
A scaled score of 100 is known as the ‘expected standard’.
A scaled score of over 110 indicates that your child is working at ‘greater depth’ within the expected standard. This means their attainment sits within the top 10% of Year 6 children nationally.
A scaled score of under 100 means your child would be judged as ‘working towards’ the expected standard. The closer this score is to 100, the ‘closer’ your child is to being judged at working at the expected standard
As there is no test for English writing, this will be reported as a teacher assessment judgement. This is a judgement teachers will make, based on your child’s work at the end of key stage 2.
