All children are assessed by their class teacher regularly through teaching and learning, in order to celebrate achievement or identify any difficulties they may be having at an early stage. Progress is assessed and recorded each term, and tracked carefully against national expectations and individual progress. More formal assessments take place at different points in the school year and are used to set targets for your child’s progress.
We regularly use staff meetings and phase meetings for moderating work.
We check how well a pupil understands and makes progress during each lesson.
Phase Leaders check the progress of pupils in their key stage each term.
SEN pupils may be assessed twice a year around their spelling age, reading age, comprehension age and vocabulary age. The results are shared with you as part of the Support plan review meetings.
