In Lawmuir Primary School assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning, and pupils are continuously assessed in an informal way as part of the daily class routine. Records of Achievement are used as a means of gathering assessment evidence, celebrating success and recording learning targets. In these folders, children’s best work are filed and can be used as part of our reporting to parents, as well as a record of work and standards achieved. At other times, standardised assessments may be used to help teachers assess pupil progress and to identify any strengths and diagnose any barriers to learning.
All parents will receive a written school report each year. This will indicate pupil’s progress in all areas of the curriculum. Curriculum for Excellence developments are being taken forward through the priorities identified in the School Improvement Plan.
We have recently introduced the use of a Snapshot Jotter. Every child in the school has a Snapshot Jotter, it is used to record a whole week of learning – a snapshot of the child’s education. The jotter is then sent home to allow parents to become more involved in their child’s learning.
