Making Good Progress
Throughout the school, children are constantly assessed to ensure that their needs are being met. Pupils are involved in this assessment through self and peer assessment. Each teacher will set targets in English and Maths in the Autumn term, updating them termly or ‘as and when’ needed. These targets are discussed with pupils and parents. Two parents/teacher consultation evenings are held, one in each of the Autumn and Spring Terms, where children’s progress is discussed.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
As with all early years providers, we complete an EYFS profile for each child in the summer term. The main purpose is to provide an accurate assessment of individual children at the end of the EYFS. The profile describes each child’s attainment against 17 early learning goals (outlined in the Development Matters Documentation), together with a short narrative about their learning characteristics.
KS1 and KS2
Children in Years 2 and 6 take statutory Standard Assessment tasks in English and Maths and children in Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 take age related tests in the Summer Term. Year 1 children take the phonics screening check in the Summer Term, the results of which are reported to parents. Each year, every child’s progress is reported to parents in a written Record of Achievement at the end of the Summer Term.
