How are children assessed and school performance measured?

 

At the beginning of their Reception year the children are assessed by their teacher in all of the aspects of the EYFS curriculum.This baseline assessment then informs the teachers planning so the curriculum can be tailored to each child's needs.

In every class teachers carry out "day to day" assessments to ensure learning is planned effectively. They also record information about children's achievements in an electronic system called "Classroom Monitor". Each half term class teachers and senior leaders meet to review the progress and attainment of every child and if required an intervention programme is put in place to help close any gaps.

At the end of KS1 children undertake a series of nationally benchmarked tasks and tests in English and mathematics to support their teacher assessments.

At the end of KS2 children's achievement is assessed through externally marked tests in reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling and maths.

The schools performance is currently above both national floor and coasting school standards.

The results of these tasks and tests are published in the DfE Performance tables.
