The school carefully monitors the progress of each child.
Children’s work is assessed formally and informally at appropriate stages. Clear targets are set for improvement and these are shared with the children.
Teachers and support staff are continuously monitoring and evaluating children’s progress through marking and observations.
Children are encouraged to play an active part in assessing their own progress and setting targets. We use these assessments to set appropriately levelled work and to provide additional support if necessary.
At the end of each Key Stage (Year 2 and Year 6) children sit end of year National Curriculum tests (also known as SATs)
In Year 2, children must undertake tests in maths and reading. The tests are administered in an informal, naturalised way and are marked by your child’s class teacher. The results of the tests are then used to help the teacher make an overall judgement as to where your child is with their learning and understanding. The result for each subject will then be reported to you through one of the mark statements previously described.
In Year 6, SATs tests are administered in a more formal manner in accordance with strict guidance from the DfE. As in Year 2, children in Year 6 undertake tests in maths, reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling, but these tests are marked externally rather than by your child’s class teacher.
