Assessment, Achievement and Attainment

As the children move through the school their progress will be continually assessed using a variety of methods. Assessments help the teacher gauge whether the child is making progress and identifies the next steps in their learning. The most widely used assessments are known as continuous assessment. This takes place within the classroom and may include observations, oral questioning, marking of work, or more formal methods, such as tests. Teacher assessments in reading, writing and maths are completed three times a year, assessing pupils against  expectations from the 2014 National Curriculum.  Findings from these assessments are available to parents at any time during the school year, but particularly at the twice yearly parent consultation evenings. Baseline assessment is carried out for children in their first term in school. When the children leave the Foundation Stage, they will have been assessed against the National Early Learning Goals and given a Foundation Stage Profile score. In May of each year national assessment tasks (SATs) are completed in Years 2 and 6.

As our last OFSTED inspection found….

‘Pupils are making good progress in Key Stage 1. At the end of Year 2 they consistently reach above average standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils continue to make good progress in Key Stage 2 and attainment is above average by the end of Year 6. An above average proportion of pupils reach the higher Level 5 in English, mathematics and science.’
