at the current year ,is it good to achieve exceeding in all 17 areas at reception? has the standards levels has been raised from previous year?

spanieleyes Sun 10-Jul-16 15:32:44

I might just be guessing, but exceeding in all areas sounds quite good to meconfused

I work in a nursery and the head teacher told me they only have 2 children who have exceeding this year in reception

It was always very good to get exceeding across the board; EYFS hasn't changed since last year.

irvineoneohone Sun 10-Jul-16 17:36:31

Great result! flowers

How could it not be good, exactly? Strange...

CocktailQueen Sun 10-Jul-16 17:40:49

No. It would be better to have 'emerging' across the board.

Stealth boast, much? hmm

Witchend Sun 10-Jul-16 18:28:46

No it's really bad I'd be really worried.
Didn't you know that there's a degree above it called exceeding exceeding? If she hasn't got at least 12 out of 17 on that level then you really need to be considering hassling the school to see improvements next year. Standards are slipping you know.
In two years time they'll add another standard on the top called exceeding exceeding exceeding to show how standards are getting even better. hmm

No standards / expectations haven't been raised from the previous year's

I teach reception and have never had a child who is exceeding in all 17 areas...

irvineoneohone Sun 10-Jul-16 18:43:33

Be nice, people!
It's a bit of proud parents moment on the anonymous forum.

VertiginousOust Sun 10-Jul-16 18:44:23

Ok, I'll bite. hmm my DC has just got exceeding across the board in reception and her teacher said she'd never taught a child who had done that before. So yes, it's good of course. How could it be anything other than good?

sirfredfredgeorge Sun 10-Jul-16 18:44:39

In 2015, 2% of children got exceeding in all things.

It seems like an awful lot of effort on the part of the teachers to get the evidence to back it up...

DD just got this, and was a bit of a shock. Not sure what to do with it, apart from a bang up Pizza Hut meal to congratulate her for her hard work, flowers for the teacher for her hard work, and not to mention it to any of the other parents, on pain of excommunication.

My child got not meeting the standard for EYFS. He's just done key stage 1 SATS and scored very highly.

Nobody cares because it doesn't mean anything. When they do GCSEs nobody cares how good they were at self care when they were 4/5 or how good they were at passing a test when they were 7.

ROSY2016 Sun 10-Jul-16 20:31:01

congratz gumbrilla.

gumbrilla Sun 10-Jul-16 23:11:52

Thank you, but it's not deserved really. For us what matters is, is she happy? They don't measure that one. She may repeat her performance in the years to come, or the other kids might catch her up, hard to say, I hope she does well, but I care more about her being happy and safe.

No exceeding is rubbish OP, how disappointing for you.

Ds was below average in Reception and was one of the lowest in his class. By Year 1 he was in the middle and just continued to improve from there. Don't worry, I'm sure she won't be the only one exceeding by the end of next year ;), so you won't be left on your own.

PrincessHairyMclary Mon 11-Jul-16 07:09:39

DD was exceeding in everything last year, also oldest in the year which I'm sure helps.

This year she's still doing well but teaching styles are different and more formal and I'm sure others have probably caught up.

Ofcourse it's lovely to have all those ticks on the page but really doesn't extend much beyond reception.

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Mon 11-Jul-16 08:06:39

The thing with the EYFS is that unless a teacher has actually observed something it hasn't happened. This can work against shy children, especially if the teacher lacks the skills to create the right environment for observations for all children.

I've seen EYFS where a child has been marked below expected level because the only assessment was based on show and tell which the child wouldn't do. The same child had been observed at preschool the year before meeting the standard.

I'm expecting big things of my Autumn born show off girl though. She's going to ace that EYFS assessment wink grin

DD is in Reception, and the EYFS report offers Emerging, Developing, Secure. No ‘exceeding’.

I thought all schools would use the same categories, but it seems not!

ROSY2016 Mon 11-Jul-16 10:18:14

I think instead of exceeding 'secure' would be nice wording.

sirfredfredgeorge Mon 11-Jul-16 10:29:24

Pretty sure schools are supposed to use that particular wording.

Secure is a different thing to exceeding too...

AMomentaryLapseOfReason Mon 11-Jul-16 10:39:12

Our school used 'exceeding' in the reception report and 'secure' in the FS1 and FS2 reports. DD was 'exceeding' in all 17 areas: the report was lovely, but didn't make a big deal out of it, it focused on her personality and enjoyment of different aspects of learning. I hadn't realised it was so unusual. Her teacher hasn't mentioned it to me at all.
