Teachers assess our childrens’ progress and attainment continually. This is an integral part of teaching and enables our teachers to plan what each child’s next steps in learning should be. Children need to be involved in this process so that they are motivated by the progress they have made and understand what they have to do next to improve.
Children in Year 1 take a statutory phonics screening test. Towards the end of both Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 6), the children are assessed using a range of statutory tasks and tests in English and Maths. The results of all statutory assessments are submitted to the Local Authority and to the DfE.
You will be invited to a parents’ evening during both the Autumn and Spring terms where you will be able to discuss your child’s progress together with other aspects of their learning with their teacher.
An end-of-year report is also sent out in July. This summarises your child’s progress and attainment that academic year and will also provide you with detailed information about their strengths and targets.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s progress, you are invited to make an appointment to see their class teacher at the end of a school day at any point throughout the school year.
