    I was just wondering what other teachers do.
    End of year levels - Do you give children level they are secure at or level they are working at?
    e.g. - working at 2b but secure at 2c. So for the end of year assessment - would you put 2b or 2c?
    My school currently put the level the children are secure at. Is that how it is supposed to be? Other schools I have worked at has always been level the child is working at.
    Thanks for any replies in advance!

    I tend to think about whether a child is a 2, 3 or 4. Then I will think about whether they are secure in that level, in which case they get a b, confidently showing some aspects of this level, so they get a c or well on their way to the next level up, so they get an a.
    I don't think it's possible to say that a child is secure at a 2c but working at a 2b. Does it work like that? I didn't think so. I thought they were either secure at a level 2, or not.

    What are age related expectations for Year 1 children?
  4. We use a best fit model so if a child has all of 2cs and just a couple of 2b points we would level them as a 2c, but if they had more 2b points (even if some still to achieve) we would say they were a 2b. At my school if Year 1's are a 1a by the end of the summer they are considered to be 'on track', not sure how that compares to other schoools.

    At my school, Year 1 *should* leave with a 1b, to make them 'on track' for a 2b at the end of Y2.
