In this section
The progress of all children is continuously monitored and assessed by class teachers. This is through both formative and summative assessment (daily, weekly and termly assessment).
There are non statutory tests which give age standardized scores and assist with monitoring of progress. Year 6 children undertake Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) in English, Mathematics and Science. At the end of Key Stage 1 children also take SATs tests in English and Mathematics but these results help to inform teacher assessment.
Parents are notified of the results of Key Stage 1 and 2 assessments at the end of the school year. In Foundation Stage assessment takes the form of the Pupil Profile which monitors the progress of the children in all areas of the curriculum.
Compass Assessment System
The school uses Achievement Statements from Compass - Years 1 to 6 - to assess where the children are working within each year group and to inform teachers of their next steps.
You will find here the criteria for reading, writing and maths for all year groups so if you wish to work on any of the objectives at home with your child then you can. If you have any questions about the assessment system, please speak to your child’s class teacher.
More detailed information about curriculum content will be sent out each term to parents and the latest information can be found on our website under each year group.
