Hi Im sure that someone has already asked this question and that many of you may have answered it, but I cant seem to find .... I am expecting the big O any day now and I have read all the relevant O guidelines etc. My head is very data driven and he collects data at the end of each term! So I have a few questions, If an average child leaves Reception scoring a 6, does a then average child enter a 2?. I have been told previously that a average child makes 4 points progression. Would you agree? And if so, is this satisfactory progression? And about how much progression point wise should a child make per term, I think 1 point is expected, 2 would be good progress? On another forum I read that all Reception children should be scoring a 4 at the start of the Spring Term! Which would mean that we would expect a child to make two points progression per term? Im so very confused. I often get achievement and progress mixed up. I know that my child make good progress and they achieve well (almost 98% scoring a 6+ last years at the end of the year) but my head wants me to prove this!!!!!! So progress- if a child enters at a 2 and then makes on avergae 1.5 points progress per term (1 in Aut, 2 in Spr, 1/2 in Summer) and achieves a 6 at the end of FS, does this mean they have made satisfactory progress? a child making two points progress per term would make good progress and a child making more that 2 would be outstanding? I dont think that things are necessarily always so black and white! In fact I know they are not!!! However, i have to make a judgement on the progress made by the children for each term and Im not sure how to do this? Does anyone have any answers to my long winded questions? Thanks is advance!!!!!!
