“No child will underachieve”

As well as ensuring children are coming to school happy and ready to learn, we also need to ensure that they are making progress. In order to monitor this, we use formal termly assessments to support regular teacher assessment.

Children in Y1-Y6 will sit a termly assessment in reading, maths, grammar and spelling (Y1 children sit their first formal assessment in the Spring term). Information about when these will take place is provided annually in the ‘dates for parents’ document and should any changes take place, you will be notified.

Writing is assessed on a regular basis throughout the year and independent pieces are compiled and assessed against set criteria as evidence. Staff regularly moderate this both within school and between other schools within the NCLT, our learning community and the Local Authority.

Year 1 children have a phonics screening assessment in the summer term, as do those children currently in Year 2 who did not pass the screen in Year 1.

Year 4 children take the online Multiplication Tables Check in the summer term too.

In May, both Year 2 and Year 6 children sit their SATs examinations which are externally set.

Pupil progress meetings also take place on a termly basis to ensure that individuals are identified where necessary and intervention and support is provided in order to continue to accelerate progress.

The termly ‘mini report’ that you receive will inform you as to how your child is currently performing in the first two terms, along with the parents’ Evenings. A full Record of Achievement goes to parents towards the end of the summer term.
