What are our Principles for Assessment:-
Formative Assessment (Day to Day and about improvement)
We assess your child informally each time we teach a lesson. This information is used to plan the next lesson. Your child may be involved in self assessment and peer assessment and this helps them check their own standards (met the lesson objectives) and those of other children. Peer assessment is important and helps children to help others and to also spot ideas and concepts to use in their own work.
We ask questions, such as:-
It is on-going and continuous.
Summative Assessment (Testing / Accountability)
We ask questions, such as:-
Your child's work is given an overall assessment at the end of each term. This helps us to track standards across the school and ensure children are making good or better progress across the year group expectations. Children are identified as early as possible if they need to have an 'intervention' to make sure they stay 'on-track' to meet national expectations.
We currently have interim expectations at each key stage, but we are already aiming higher than those in our Reading, Writing and Mathematics teaching and learning.
Year Six children sit tests provided by the Government in Reading, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation and Mathematics. This is a designated week in May.
Year Four children carry out a Multiplication Tables Check. This check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12. This happens in June.
Year Two children sit tests provided by the Government in Reading, Writing, Mathematics and they are used to make an informed Teacher Assessment judgement of their standards. This happens across the month of May.
Year One children are tested in their Phonics Development, usually in June. Any children who do not meet Phonics Standard will have to sit the test in the next year group to check they have met the minimum standard.
All national testing is reported to parents / carers.
