Assessment

ASSESSMENT

Assessment

On-going teacher assessment is a core component of the Assessment for Learning (AfL) process and is also embedded within the school’s Assessment, Recording and Reporting (ARR) policy.

The objective is for the teacher to assess the children’s understanding of Key Objectives at the time of the task and to provide evidence of effort, attainment and progress. By identifying the child’s strengths and weaknesses, future planning will be informed and effective. Setting specific targets also enables children to monitor their own progression.

Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6) will take a twice yearly reading age test, a yearly, online, maths and science assessment and a termly writing and maths assessment. 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 Ability tasks. Key Stage 1 (Years 1-2) will take a termly phonics and a twice yearly maths assessment.  Assessment levels are in relation to the National Curriculum levels of England and Wales, standardised age scores and Early Years phases. Students are assessed at the start of each term as we well as the end to gauge their progress.

Parents are informed of the assessment and evaluation using termly assessment results, twice yearly detailed reports and parent teacher meetings as well as a Learning Journey book.
