EOY Expectations

End of Year Expectation Booklets

In order to help parents and carers support their children’s learning in school, we have produced information booklets containing the End of Year Expectations for Nursery through to Year 4. Please download a copy for your child’s Year Group.

If you have any questions about the Curriculum and the expectations children aim to meet by the end of each school year, please make an appointment with your child’s teacher.

The information you will find documented in the booklets below forms the expectations that your child will be assessed against. We have shared them with you so you are fully aware of what the ‘End of Year Expectations’ are for your child and their respective year group. 

These booklets list key skills that should be in place by the end of your child’s current year. This is based on abilities needed so that he/she can fully access the age-related curriculum the following year. We hope that you will find these documents useful to help support the work we do and in helping us to ensure your child is achieving their potential. Teachers will share your child’s progress with you, throughout the year at Parent-Teacher Consultation (PTC) meetings.
