Hi TES community, I really hope someone can help me with this. It's my first year teaching Reception. I have assessed all of my children using the guidance including the info from Gloucestershire to secure exceeding statements. Everything it says in the exceeding my children can do. But then I read on here that you have to be G and T to be exceeding, others say they have to be working above level 1 on the old curriculum to be exceeding and then others say you should only have 1 or 2 who are exceeding. Someone wrote that they have to be reading and ordering 3 digit numbers where does it say that on the exceeding guidance that talks about estimating and counting numbers up to 20 that's not a 3-digit number! I've sent my data down line now but can't help feeling I've made a mistake. What on Earth is exceeding? Why is it so unclear?
