END OF KS1 DATA & YEAR ONE PHONICS
END OF KEY STAGE ONE DATA
At the end of Key Stage One (end of Year 2), all pupils will undergo an assessment of their attainment in Reading, Writing, Maths and Science. The attainment judgements will be based on *formative and **summative assessment made by teachers using end of Year Two testing materials and also by using the ongoing formative teacher assessment judgements built up over time from ongoing assessment. National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teacher’s judgement at end of Year 2.
Summative Assessment at the End of KS1 is recorded as follows:
Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard or Age Related Expectation (ARE) for a child at the end of Year 2
Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong and in depth understanding of the curriculum.
You will see from our data set at the end of Year 2, that pupils at Our Lady of Dolours make excellent progress and attain highly in comparison to National Averages. A number of our children make exceptional progress and attain at Greater Depth. These outcomes are testament to the very hard work and commitment of school staff, parents and carers.
We invite you to peruse our school data. Please scroll down on this page for KS1 and Phonics data. You will find KS2 data in the School Information section of the website
