School inspection handbook
• Evaluation of achievement in the Early Years Foundation Stage
should take account of the proportions of children who have
made typical progress or more from their starting points. An
example of typical progress for a child would be to start
Nursery or Reception displaying the knowledge, skills and
understanding that are typical for her/his age and then to meet
the early learning goals by the end of Reception. Children who
meet all the early learning goals but who started at a lower
level of development than is typical for their age might be said
to be making rapid progress. However, a child starting school at
a higher level of development who meets all the early learning
goals but exceeds none of them is unlikely to have made
enough progress. Evaluation of achievement should also
consider attainment at the end of Reception in comparison
with Early Years Foundation Stage Profile national figures and
in terms of how well it prepares children for Key Stage 1.
School inspection handbook
• Evaluation of achievement in Key Stage 1 should take
account of the proportions of pupils who have made typical
progress or more from their starting points. For 2014/15, as
a broad rule of thumb, Year 2 children who reached a good
level of development at the end of Reception ought to be
reaching at least the expected standard by the end of Key
Stage 1 (so attaining at least Level 2b in the 2015
assessments). Children exceeding the early learning goals
at the end of Reception ought to be exceeding the
expected standard at the end of Key Stage 1 and be
reaching high standards. Inspectors should take into
account of how well pupils with a lower starting point have
made up ground, and the breadth and depth of progress
made by the most able.
School inspection handbook
• Inspectors must take particular account of the
progress made by disadvantaged pupils
compared with that made nationally by other
pupils with similar starting points, and the extent
to which any gaps in this progress, and
consequently in attainment, are closing.
Inspectors should first consider the progress and
attainment of disadvantaged pupils compared
with the national figures on progress and
attainment for non-disadvantaged pupils, and
how much any gaps are closing.
School inspection handbook
• Looking at the descriptors….
Recent reports
• The Early Years Foundation Stage requires
improvement because the Nursery and
Reception classes are not planning for or
assessing children’s progress as a cohesive
unit; and opportunities are missed to make
the best use of the outdoor resources.
Recent reports
• Children make rapid progress in the Early
Years Foundation Stage and quickly develop
their speaking, writing and counting skills.
They achieve standards at the end of
Reception that are above those found
nationally. These children are provided with
an outstanding start to their education and
their personal and social development.
Recent reports
• Learning activities for children in the
Reception classes are varied and enthuse
children. Children make good progress,
particularly in developing their personal and
social skills.
Recent reports
• Children do not sufficiently develop their skills in
reading, writing and mathematics in the Early
Years Foundation Stage.
• In the Early Years Foundation Stage the outdoor
learning area is not as stimulating as it is indoors.
Staff do not always involve parents enough in
their children’s learning.
