Year 1 Expectations

< Back

Please click on the links below to see what a typical Year 1 child should be capable of by the end of the year.


Our ongoing assessments are carefully structured to enable teachers to assess progress towards these end of year expectations. Your child will be assessed as either  being ‘At Expectation’, Exceeding Expectation’ or ‘ working below’ expectation.

During the year, from Year 2 onwards, we give parents a termly tracker as to their child’s progress towards these end of year expectations. We have two face to face Parent Consultation meetings in Autumn and Spring term. In the summer term we send a written report of your child’s academic performance and their wider development and attitudes to learning .If you have any concerns about your child’s progress, which are not met via these communications, please contact your class teacher in the first instance .
