Assessment

As pupils progress through our school, teachers use a range of assessment strategies, including Assessment for Learning strategies as well as setting tests. Pupils are also involved in assessing their own progress and developing their next steps.

We recognise that all pupils do not develop and progress at the same rate and, therefore, we use both group and individual methods to ensure that all pupils are given appropriate instruction and the opportunity to succeed. Please contact the school as soon as possible if you have any concerns about your child’s progress.

These are some of the methods we use to assess children.

Observation

Interaction between the Teacher and Pupil/s

Looking at and marking jotters and work and by giving quality feedback

Formative approaches – peer and self-assessment

Personal Learning Planning and target setting

Summative assessment eg formal assessements

Standardised tests in Maths and Language

Learning Logs over a period of time

Tracking progress
