End of Year English Expectations

To achieve our vision and continue in our quest to raise English standards across the whole school Birches have created and implemented a set of ‘Non-Negotiable’ expectations for all pupils.

These expectations have been identified as being the minimum requirements a child should know and understand by the end of each year. The teaching staff recognise that in some cases, children may be emerging or exceeding our expectations. With this in mind, we have provided a link below for parents and visitors to access all year groups.

All the objectives will be taught within the year and will be the focus of direct teaching. Delivery of these objectives will be planned carefully by the teachers to ensure progress for all children, mindful of pupil’s current attainment.

Any extra support you can provide in helping your children to achieve these is greatly valued. If you have any queries regarding the content of this page or the expectations or want support in knowing how best to help your child, please talk to your child’s class teacher. You can also contact the school office to arrange to speak to someone regarding these.

Thank you for your on-going commitment and support.
