Haddon Primary and Nursery School
In 2014 the Government introduced new National Curriculum in State schools in England.
Fundamentally, this sets out what pupils should learn in all subjects and schools are then required to assess pupils against Achievement Statements for each subject.
As part of our vision at Haddon Primary School we aim to find the positives in all we do so that we are able to appreciate and celebrate successes and then make them even better.
Assessment without levels allows us to do this, therefore:-
Assessing the new National Curriculum using Achievement Statements
Achievements Statements measure the following 2 types of targets:
These targets focus on learning that is at a foundational level. Children need to be accurate and fluent in basic skills and foundational knowledge.
There are 3 depths at which foundational targets are assessed:
These targets focus on assessing learning that is at a conceptual level. Children build on their foundational learning and can connect ideas and skills in sophisticated ways.

At the end of the Foundation Stage, children are given 'scores' against a set of 7 key areas of learning and development. These cover the Prime Areas of Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language and the 4 specific areas of Maths, Literacy, Expressive Arts ad Design and Understanding the World.
For each goal, your child's report will have information on whether they are meeting expectations, exceeding them or if they are still working towards the skill concerned (this will be called 'emerging' in their report).
