Assessing your child’s progress is an integral part of teaching and learning. It is used to identify the next steps in learning and to monitor the progress children are making. Assessment is about informed observation, monitoring of work and effective questioning which enables us to record what your child can do and what they need to do next.
Children engage regularly in self-assessment at an age-appropriate level so that they can explain what they have done well and how they can improve their work even more.
Children are assessed in line with statutory requirements. An early years foundation stage profile is completed at the end of their reception year and statutory national curriculum tests are administered during May in year two. A phonics screening check also takes place in June in year one.
Assessment information is shared with parents and carers at each Learning Phase's consultation events and through three pupil attainment and progress reports sent to parents and carers throughout the year.
This policy and guidelines outlines assessment procedures throughout the school.
