During Reception our children are assessed against the ‘Early Learning Goals’ as a continuation from on-going assessments in pre-School. By the time they leave Reception 87% (2016 data) of all children achieve a ‘Good Level of Development’ against a County average of 75% and 69% National in 2016.
We offer a structured synthetic phonics programme (Read, Write Inc) from Reception until a child is confident (typically in Year 2). National screening takes place in Year 1 and in 2016 87% passed the assessment against a national average of 81% in 2016.
Any child who has not met the standard is routinely re assessed in Year 2.
