Assessment, Record Keeping and Reporting
Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Assessments are made by teachers throughout the school year to identify next steps in pupil learning. These are undertaken in a variety of forms, including regular pupil progress meetings, observations, teacher marking/pupil response, teacher-pupil discussion, self/peer marking, simulations and practical/oral/written/memory tasks.
Each year pupils in Year One complete the phonics screening check. Years 2 children complete SATs (Standardised Assessment Tasks) in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
In Key Stage Two, Year 6 further SATs are taken just before they leave primary school. Results from these assessments are shared with parents.
Ongoing discussions with parents take place, however formally once a term the following takes place:
We will discuss the settling in process and general progress of pupils.
There will be a consultation meeting for all parents/carers.
Written report sent to parents and given option to discuss if needed.
