i was in DD1s class today filing work for the TA. anyway, DD1 (age 5) has a G&T lesson each week. in her folder was a note saying "DD1 236 vs 120 reception"
what does this mean??!

Ask the teacher!

haha
ok can see where this thread is going.

Yes you will. Grab her in the morning, or in the afternoon - you should ALWAYS be able to have a quick word with the teacher!

Probably means her score v's class average. No idea actually!

PIPS - Perfomance indicator in Primary schools - information here:-
http://www.det.act.gov.au/teachingand_learning/assessment_and_reporting/early_yearsassessm ent
OUR DS school use these internally but focus on the QCA gradings for parent feedback - so I thinks of PIPS as the schools measure

We do Pips at school - once a term.

I haven't looked in depth at the feedback, but I know that the average is 50, and top scores are usually in the reagion of 70 - 80. I don't understand a score of 236 or even 120. I don't think these come from Pips.

There is no single number for Pips - they report several scores for each child.

oh ok, thanks anyway. i shall ignore it! maybe it was for something else and the PIP comment separate.

Can I say again that if you only feel you can talk to the teacher at parent's evening there's something wrong somewhere. Reception teachers in particular should be grabbable in the morning or at home time.

yes i know, if it was important i would grab them, it is not a problem.
it was just a query, me being nosy, nothing that can't wait.
