Levels in Schools

Until September 2014, we had worked with levels in schools for over 15 years. The levels of attainment were expected bench marks for each year group. We also tracked children throughout their school life through levels.

Changes from September 2014

In September, the Government removed levels in schools, except for Years 2 and 6. Children in Years 2 and 6 take their statutory assessments (SATS) as in previous years and will keep the current levels for one more year.
The Early Years curriculum has remained unchanged. However, a new statutory baseline will be introduced at the beginning of Reception in September 2016
