Assessment

A system of continuous assessment, both formal and informal, is used to monitor pupils’ progress. The information obtained also provides a basis on which the teacher will plan appropriate programmes of work. Information from each year group is also used to determine the setting of targets over the following year.

A Foundation Stage Profile is completed throughout the child's first year at school and shared with the parents at the end of the year.

Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs) are administered in year 2 (the end of National Curriculum Key Stage 1). Their purpose is to give an indication of each child’s performance compared with that of an average 7 year old. Children are assessed in writing, reading and comprehension and maths. Speaking and listening skills and scientific knowledge is also assessed by the teacher.

In order to further monitor progress, children in years 3 and 4 complete standard tests in the summer term.
