Greenmount Primary School

Assessment without Levels

In recent years, there have been a number of changes in how we assess how children are developing and report this to parents. In the past we have used a system with sub-levels (e.g. Level 1C, 1B, 1A, 2C, 2B, 2A, etc.) however we now assess without levels and instead use criteria based on Age Related Expectations. During the course of the year, you will receive information from the class teacher about the how your child is doing against Age Related Expectations in terms of their reading, writing and numeracy. At Greenmount, their attainment and progress is reported using the following terminology:

At Greenmount we have developed a bespoke set of criteria for Reading, Writing and Numeracy to ensure we can assess and plan for your children and their individual needs and next steps.

At the end of Reception, Year 2 and Year 6, the standard the children are working at is sent off and reported to the Department for Education (DfE). Further information for parents about the statutory tests and results can be found in the links below.

At the end of Year 6 your child will now receive a scaled score in Reading, Maths and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. If your child gets a score of around 100 then they are working at the expected standard for the end of Year 6.
