Early Years  Foundation Stage (Reception class)

A  ‘Baseline Assessment’ was introduced for all children in Reception in September 2015. Throughout their first year at school, children are continually assessed in the 6 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, beginning with the prime areas of learning and leading on to the specific areas of learning.  This assessment is mainly carried out through observations by the teacher or teaching assistant, of practical activities in which the children are involved. This assessment is recorded using an online learning diary which parents are able to access from home, and add to.

Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2)

Ongoing teacher assessment is used to help identify and meet learning needs. In line with government requirements. Children sit a phonics test in year 1 and have the opportunity to retake in year 2 if they did not reach the expected standard

Key Stage Two (Years 3 - 6)

Ongoing teacher assessment is used to help identify and meet learning needs. In Year 4 the children sit a computer based multiplication  facts recall test.  In Year 6, children take the National SAT tests in Reading, GPS ( grammar, punctuation and spelling) and Maths. These are reported to parents and the Local Authority.
