How do teachers set ks2 targets?
My dd is in y3 and her targets were 2 sub-levels higher than her y2 grades. My son is in y5 and his target was 3 sub-levels over the year.

Dd went up 3 sub levels in literacy and 1 in maths. Ds made 3 sub levels in both numeracy and literacy.

Could the discrepancy be a result of level 4 being easier to work through than level 3 or is it because of the difference in year group?

Dd's teacher was very vague about how it's done and mentioned something about the deputy head setting targets and ds's teacher is a temp and normally teaches in Scotland where things are apparently very different.

I'm interested because I'm geeky and like to know how things work. I'm not boasting by stealth or have a strong opinion on the targets and achievement made.
