Average Attainment at the

End of Each Year

As a school we want to provide you with accurate information about your child's achievements and how these relate to national expectations. The attached documents should help you to make a judgement about how your child's current levels in Reading, Writing & Maths compare with National expectations.

In our March Parents' Evenings all teachers will be talking you through your child's current levels.

If, at any other point in the year, you have any questions about your child's current attainment levels or any concerns about the progress they are making then please book an appointment with your child's class teacher who will be happy to meet with you.

Needless to say,children all progress at different rates and all classes contain a spread of ability. As a school, it our our job to ensure children make good progress from their starting point and that we aspire for all children to meet at least age related expectations by the end of Year 6.

Parent helpers in school

 

We have many parents and some grandparents who can spare us some of their time to help in classes, or when we take the children out on trips. If you would like to support your child's class (or any other class) in this way, get in touch with Miss Baker.

Currently parents help us doing the following:

  • Playing maths games
  • Hearing readers
  • Doing art activities
  • Sharing their interests and skills
  • Telling us about their job (police officer, doctor, nurse, vet, etc)
  • Doing computer activities
  • Coming swimming with us

You are always welcome to volunteer in school.
