These descriptors are currently used at Minterne to track pupil progress and to assess our pupils at the end of each school year. We have worked closely with advisors at Kent LEA to produce these statements. However, all schools are still awaiting further clarity and detail from the Government around assessing the new National Curriculum; as we receive more information, these descriptors may change slightly.
Please refer to the Glossary document at the foot of this page which explains some of the technical terms used in the descriptors. The word lists can be found in the Spelling Appendix.
