Attainment & Progress

The progression and learning of every individual child is enhanced by the use of assessment, record keeping and reporting. Within the National Curriculum the teacher’s assessments form an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Systems of recording and reporting are used to inform the next teacher, schools, children and parents. These are concise, manageable and meaningful to all.

The school undertakes the legislative requirements of Foundation Stage Assessment for children in Reception and the end of Key Stages SATS for Year 2 and Year 6 children.
The Qualifications Curriculum Authority optional SATS are carried out at the end of Years 3, 4 and 5.
Teacher assessments based on the National Curriculum levels are undertaken each term.

Progression

The school uses rigorous internal tracking systems to ensure that each child is making good progress. These also identify areas of strengths and weaknesses in teaching and learning to inform school priorities and intervention programmes.

Reporting

Children receive a written report on their progress during the summer term. We arrange three meetings with parents during the year:

  • an informal ’Meet the Teacher’ evening at the beginning of the autumn term.

  • a formal consultation with the child’s teacher in November.

  • a progress review with parents and pupils in March.

School development meetings are also held during the year and these can be found on the School Events List.

Record Keeping

Pupil record folders on each child are kept in the school office. The folders contain: admission information, copies of reports to parents, assessment outcomes, reports from outside agencies to which a child may have been referred e.g. Educational Psychologist. This information is shared with teachers as children move between classes. The record folders are passed to respective schools on transition.
