School Performance 2017

 

 End of Key Stage 1: Year 2

This is the second year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2. These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014. At the end of KS1 (Year 2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are covered under the Interim framework and are as follows:

Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2

Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum

The 2017 end of key Stage 1 results are as follows:

  • 87% of Furze Platt pupils reached the new expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics with 25% reaching Greater Depth. 
  • 64% of pupils nationally reached the new expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics with 11% reaching Greater Depth

Phonics: Year 1

The Year One Phonics Check. The Phonics Screening Check happens towards the end of Y1. It is administered individually to each child by the class teacher. It is meant to show how well a child can use the phonics skills they’ve learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help. The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that a child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything – a child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them.
