Assessment Year 6

From September 2015 all pupils have been taught and assessed against the new National Curriculum attainment targets for each year group. At the end of Year 6, teacher assessments are submitted to the government for Reading, Writing, Mathematics and Science. Please see the table below for a breakdown of what your child could be assessed as:

   Subject

Teacher Assessment Judgments(from lowest  to highest attaining category)

    Reading, Mathematics and Science

Has not met age-related expectations

Working at age-related expectations

    Writing

Foundations for the expected standard

Early development of the expected standard

Growing development of the expected standard

Working towards age-related expectations

Working at age-related expectations

Working in greater depth

During Year 6, children complete national tests (SATS) in Reading, Mathematics and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. The outcomes of these tests will be reported as a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 would indicate that your child is working at age-related expectations. The higher the scaled score, the further ahead your child is of the national standard.

The separate data sheet that you will receive will include the statements and scores mentioned above. Please note that there is no option to select your child as working above age-related expectations for the official teacher assessments in Reading and Mathematics. However, the scaled score would give a strong indication of your child’s performance. On the end of year reports, the teacher has made assessments using the following terminology:

  • working towards age-related expectations
  • at age-related expectations
  • above age-related expectations

If your child is assessed as working towards age-related expectations, it means that they have not fully mastered the end of year objectives. Children assessed as working above age-related expectations are working in greater depth to the objectives mentioned. This means that your child is able to apply their learning in a range of different contexts.
