Teachers are continually assessing children through questioning and reviewing their work.
Records of progress are kept in order that we can plan lessons, which match each child’s needs and ability.
Formal tests are taken at specific points in-line with Government requirements.
There is a Baseline Assessment undertaken by teachers in the first few weeks of children starting in Reception. During the Reception Year the teacher completes the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile which is discussed and reported to parents at the end of the year.
Pupils undertake a Phonics Screening Test in Year 1 and if necessary, retake in Year 2.
Year 2 and Year 6 pupils (at the end of each Key Stage) take Standard Assessment Tests. Results are reported to parents and used by the school to monitor our standards.
As we have very small cohorts in each year the results of ‘formal assessments’ may not be published, but as a school will evaluate performance on an individual basis.
