Assessment @ Dore Primary School

The Milestones

At Dore Primary School we are constantly looking for the most effective approach to ensure that your child is progressing in their learning in the best possible way. Of course this primarily focuses around teaching approaches and informal assessments on a day to day basis, alongside this we also focus on tracking the pupils using our assessment tool.

For the past 3 years we have used the Milestones to allow us to see the progress that pupils make as they move through the school. It allows us to see the depth of understanding that a child has in the different curriculum areas.



The tree is a visual representation of the Milestones. It is also attached at the bottom of this document, if you wish to view in enlarged.

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Profile

Children begin their journey in the Foundation Stage working through the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, from Secure 30-50 months to Emerging 40-60 months to Developing 40-60 months to Secure 40-60 months to The Early Learning Goals and then some children progress onto Exceeding the Early Learning Goals.

Milestone 1

As the children enter Year 1 this is where they begin their journey with Milestone 1, initially with Emerging Basic and progressing onto Secure Basic. Year 2 enhance this knowledge and understanding and children progress onto Emerging Advancing followed by Secure Advancing. Some children demonstrate a deep understanding at this point in their learning and progress on to Emerging and Secure Deep.

Milestone 2

As the children enter Year 3 they begin their journey with Milestone 2, initially with Emerging Basic and progressing onto Secure Basic. Year 4 enhance this knowledge and understanding and children progress onto Emerging Advancing followed by Secure Advancing. Some children demonstrate a deep understanding at this point in their learning and progress on to Emerging and Secure Deep.

Milestone 3

As the children enter Year 5 they begin their journey with Milestone 3, initially with Emerging Basic and progressing onto Secure Basic. Year 6 enhance this knowledge and understanding and children progress onto Emerging Advancing followed by Secure Advancing. Some children demonstrate a deep understanding at this point in their learning and progress on to Emerging and Secure Deep. 

Of course, all of our children are individual and they all learn at different rates, so within one year group we can have children working on different parts of the Milestones.

If you require any further information about the Milestones and your child's progress then please speak to your child's class teacher.
