National Standards came into effect in English-medium schools with pupils in Years 1 to 8 in 2010. The standards set clear expectations that students need to meet in reading, writing, and mathematics in the first eight years at school. Please be aware that the standards are for the end of the school year. This is why in our Interim Reports, at the beginning of the year, we use the words ‘Working Towards’ or ‘On Track’.
