Assessment

ASSESSMENT

Assessment

On-going teacher assessment is at the heart of our understanding of how the children are performing and what support and challenge needs to be planned to enable them to make the best progress.  By identifying the child’s strengths and weaknesses, future planning will be informed and effective. Setting the children specific targets also enables then to monitor their own progression.

Years 1 to 6 will take half termly tests in reading and mathematics which will help to further inform our teacher assessments. To assess the children's writing they also carry out 'Big Writing' tasks (extended writing) which are teacher assessed each half term. The children are assessed against the British National Curriculum expectations in English, Mathematics and Science and the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) Learning Goals for other subjects. The Early Years children are teacher assessed against the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and Early Learning Goals.

Year 6 will also undertake the CAT4 test. The CAT4 assesses a pupil's ability to reason with and manipulate different types of material through a series of Verbal, Non-Verbal, Quantitative and Spatial 

Parents are informed of the teacher assessments through twice yearly detailed reports and parent teacher meetings as well as the children's online Learning Journey. Parents are also welcome to come in to school to speak to the teacher for an update on how their child is progressing.
