In school we report to you your child’s attainment in Maths and Reading and Writing as either Working Below, Working at Expected or Working at Greater Depth at the end of each term. Within these reports, we also share their rate of progress. It is important to note that children make progress at different rates and that as a school, we will put in support to help children to make expected progress.
Over time, teachers will be able to see which objectives a child has achieved in relation to the end of year expectations. We can then report to parents, at the end of the year, if their child is Working Below, Working at Expected or Working at Greater Depth in relation to end of year expectations. Teachers will also be able to discuss objectives met and targets for the future.
Children will be making expected progress if they move from the previous year’s objectives to working towards current year objectives to making expected progress and more than expected progress. Where a child is Working Towards or working at Greater Depth in relation to the end of year expectations, teachers will explain to parents if the progress that is being made is that which is expected, or if it has stalled of declined.
Please do come in and see us at any point in the year if you have specific questions that we can help you with or would like to find out more about how your child is doing.
