40 % of pupils are below target after first year

    I have just read an article in the Evening Standard which states that nearly 40 per cent of children in London are failing to meet expected standards by the end of their first year at school ( age five).

    I am a secondary school teacher and I must confess that I am completely baffled by this. Isn't five a bit young? Where do these expected targets come from? etc

    Can someone please explain this to me?

    I expect the assessment is made in June, too, so a sixth of them will only be 4.

    The EYFS profile is a summary of a child's attainment over the whole of the EYFS based mainly on evidence from ongoing observation of the child in normal daily activities and play not on assessments carried out at a specific point in the year
