Why the change? Best fit approach caused gaps in learning Emerging your child is working towards the expected standard. They may need support to master their learning. Expected your child is working at the expected standard and has mastery and depth to a secure level. Exceeding your child is working above the expected standard. They are working with depth and mastery showing a high ability to apply learning across the curriculum. Mastery 1. A child needs lots of support from adults and resources (stabilisers) Mastery

2. A child is now growing in confidence, can be independent but needs guidance to become secure. Mastery 3. A child has a good understanding, awareness, high levels of independence and is confident. Mastery 4. A child can apply a range of skills to different contexts and broaden their experiences.

The picture at our school Most children are working towards achieving the expected level. It takes time to fill gaps in knowledge, skills and understanding. We are helping children to know their targets and improve their work. We passionately believe that the primary school years should foster a love of learning.
