End of Year Expectations for Year 5
This leaflet outlines information for parents and carers on the end of year expectations for pupils at our school.
The National Curriculum details these expectations as being the minimum requirements your child should meet in order to ensure continued progress.
All these objectives will be taught throughout the year. Any extra support you can provide is greatly valued.
