Assessment Data

We believe that assessment is integral to high quality teaching and learning. It helps us to ensure that our teaching is appropriate and that learners are making expected progress.

Assessment serves many purposes, but the main purpose of assessment in our school is to help teachers, parents/carers and pupils plan their next steps in learning. We also use the outcomes of assessment to evaluate our provision and to help us improve.

We use Pupil Asset system as a tool for gathering our observations and assessment evidence together. This helps the teacher to identify gaps in children’s learning, which are then used to inform their planning. The system also enables attainment and progress to be tracked by child, class, year group and the whole school, to support the school’s self-evaluation as well as providing useful evidence for governors, the local authority and school inspectors.

Each child is assessed against the Attainment Targets in the Programmes of Study from the new National Curriculum. Each half term, a summative assessment is made that judges whether the child is:

  • working towards expected
  • expected 
  • working at greater depth

Class teachers will discuss how each child is progressing with parents and carers at termly parents’ evenings and summarise their children’s attainment and progress in annual reports.
