Expected standards

We have the privilege of teaching bright and curious students from Taddington and the surrounding areas and beyond. If you’re new to our community and would like to learn more about our values, academics, teaching staff or anything else, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

At Taddington and Priestcliffe Primary School, we have high aspirations for all of our learners. The information on this page outlines the standards that we expect children to achieve  as they move through school.  You should arrange a meeting with the class teacher should you have any concerns about your child's progress.

We use 2 measures to assess if a child has met the expected standard of reading. 

Measure 1

This is the child's ability to comprehend ( understand) what they have read by giving a written response to the text assigned to their age and school term.

Measure 2

This is the child's reading fluency. This relates to how fluent the child is at reading a text assigned to their age and school term.

At Taddington, we use Key Performance Indicators to help assess writing. As well has many other standards for writing, these give a broad overview of expectations for each year group. These are essential criteria that must be met if a child is to have met the end of year expectations. If other criteria are met but the KPIs are not, then a child will not have met the expected standard and the KPI will become an urgent target for intervention.
