    Hi, quick question to help me with analysis. Is it accurate to say that a FSP in any area of 5 or below on entry to Y1 is below average? Many thanks.
  2. hello :eek:) yes that's what I understand to be the case. 6 is average, 5 and below is below average, 7-8 is exceeding, and 9 is g&t.

    From the NAHT
    It is therefore not enough to say that the acquisition of 6 scale points is indicative as an acceptable basis for the next stage; it depends upon the particular scale points achieved.

    I don't think it's accurate to say that 6 is average. 6 is the expected level of achievement for a child at the end of EYFS. If 6 were the average, you would expect a spread of scores around 6, whereas for most children you would look for at least 6 or 78+.
  6. oh okay, sorry. That's just what I had been told by various people! EYFS is so confusing.... :eek:)
