Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Results 2018
Early Years Foundation Stage
At the end of the Reception Year, the children are assessed using the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile (EYFS). A Good Level of Development is defined as working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Literacy and Mathematics.
Key Stage 1
2017-2018 was the third year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for the end of Key Stage 1, which is in line with the more challenging Primary National Curriculum (introduced in 2014).
For more information, please see the ‘Information for parents: national curriculum assessment results at the end of Key Stage 1’ found using the following link from the Standards and Testing Agency. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/results-at-the-end-of-key-stage-1-information-for-parents
At the end of Key Stage 1, teachers are required to assess each child in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science and report their attainment to the DfE. In order to do this, there are National Curriculum Tests (SATs) that are used to help support teacher’s judgements in relation to the standard that each child has achieved.
