Please note summer 15 was the last time children in Key Stage 1 will be assessed by national curriculum level descriptors. Since September 2015, we assess against the national standards – we are aiming for all our children to reach the expected standard for their age and for many to reach Mastery level (this level requires them to demonstrate a depth of understanding that goes beyond the expected standard for their age).
