I have just had my daughter's year 4, end of year report and I am unimpressed with her progress as shown by her NC levels.
Y2 Y3 Y4
Reading 3 3a/4c 4c
Writing 2a 3b 4c
Maths 3 3a 4c
Now I realise that 4c is an Ok level, it's just that her progress seems to be slowing down (apart from writing which I'm happy with, except she can't spell but that's another thread) to the extent that it worries me.
I'm not sure how objective these levels are. We have our consultation tomorrow and I don't know what to say to the teacher, I have already had discussions with her this year about lack of progress and I don't seem to get much reaction.
We live in a very competitive area for schools and her brother had a 4A in maths at this stage and it was still a struggle.
Any thoughts, opinions or advice welcomed.
We expect our children to make 3 sublevels progress each year in KS1 and 2 in KS2-which is considered 'good'. 'Satisfactory' progress would be 1.5 sublevels per year, but obviously this is rather difficult to measure exactly! Your daughter has gone from a 3c to a 4c in two years in Maths/Reading (one whole level) and a 2a to a 4c (more than one level) so she is making expected progress. It can be difficult, because she may well have only just been eg a 3a in maths at the end of Y3, but is now nearly (but not quite) a 4b-so you may feel that the levels don't look like she's made enough progress.
