An example level descriptor
Writing: Level 3
Pupils’ writing is often organised, imaginative and clear. The main
features of different forms of writing are used appropriately,
beginning to be adapted to different readers. Sequences of
sentences extend ideas logically and words are chosen for variety
and interest. The basic grammatical structure of sentences is
usually correct.
Spelling is accurate, including that of common, polysyllabic
words.
Punctuation to mark sentences – full stops, capital letters and
question marks is used accurately.
Handwriting is joined and legible.

APP as a tool
Assessing Pupil Progress is a tool we use which is on our School
Pupil Tracker.
It takes the National Curriculum Level Descriptors and breaks
them down into smaller steps.
We use this as a very useful assessment tool.

Level 2 – National Curriculum
• Pupils’ reading of simple texts shows
understanding and is generally
accurate.
•
They express opinions about major
events or ideas in stories, poems and
non-fiction.
•
They use more than one strategy,
such as phonic, graphic, syntactic
and contextual, in reading unfamiliar
words and establishing meaning.
Level 2 – APP
In some reading range of key words read on sight unfamiliar words
decoded using appropriate strategies, e.g. blending sounds some
fluency and expression, e.g. taking account of speech marks,
punctuation
In some reading some specific, straightforward information recalled,
e.g. names of characters, main ingredients generally clear idea of
where to look for information, e.g. about characters, topics
In some reading simple, plausible inference about events and
information, using evidence from text e.g. how a character is
feeling, what makes a plant grow comments based on textual
cues, sometimes misunderstood
In some reading some awareness of use of features of organization,
e.g. beginning and ending of story, types of punctuation In some
reading some effective language choices noted, e.g. “slimy” is a
good word there some familiar patterns of language identified,
e.g. once upon a time; first, last, next,
In some reading some awareness that writers have viewpoints and
purposes, e.g. ‘it tells you how to do something’, ‘she thinks it’s
not fair’ simple statements about likes and dislikes in reading,
sometimes with reasons
In some reading general features of a few text types identified, e.g.
information books, stories, print media some awareness that
books are set in different times and places

Target setting
Every class teacher sets regular targets
for reading and writing. These are
designed to help children move their
learning on. The aim is that they will
work through two targets per term
although this is dependent on the child.
