Assessment

Assessment of progress is an ongoing process that we share with the children. All pupils are encouraged to set termly targets and these are discussed with class teachers.

The school assesses progress in Writing on a half termly basis and a more formal assessment of progress in Maths and Reading is carried out once per term- this is age appropriate and also is firmly based in teacher assessment.

The school carries out statutory assessments of pupils in Year 2 and Year 6 and pupils in Year 1 take part in the Phonics Screening Check.

Parents are invited to consultation evenings twice a year; pupil progress against performance indicators for their age is discussed at this time.

Pupils are encouraged to review their own learning in all subjects: in the Early Years this is carried out alongside staff using Tapestry; in KS1 and KS2 pupils have profile booklets that they contribute to and these are shared with parents at termly consultations; pupils in KS2 record activities and progress in their individual PE diaries and in KS1 a class diary is kept. Books containing work are made; some of these contain whole class work and some are for individual pupils.
