Early Years Foundation Stage

Chart showing % of children achieving a “Good level of development”.
Children are defined as having reached a good level of development at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in:

  • the early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language) and
  • the early learning goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.


Year One

Phonics screening check. Over the past three years children were considered to have met the required standards in phonics if they could decode 32/40 or more real and non-real words containing the 44 phonemes of the English language.



Year Two

Year 2 were assessed for the first time in 2016 under a new framework which used externally set tests in reading, grammar, punctuation, spelling and Maths. The Grammar test was not required to be administered in the end due to a publication error in advance of the test dates. These tests, alongside school’s own internal assessment procedures were used to assess children’s competence. This information is set out below;
