Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning and pupils’ are continuously assessed by their teacher in an informal way as part of the daily classroom routine. Pupils’ are also involved in the assessment process through self evaluating at the end of their tasks and peer assessing other pupils’ work.
At other times, a variety of formal tests, e.g, MALT testing for maths, Benchmarking for reading, end of unit tests in maths, spelling tests etc may be used to help teachers’ assess pupil progress and identify areas of strengths and areas for development for individual children.
All parents’ will receive two official school reports within the academic year. An interim report will be issued in October and an End of Year report will be issued in April or May. These reports will form the basis of discussion at the two formal parents’ evenings, usually held in Novemeber and May.
Parents’ are more than welcome to discuss their child’s progress at any time. However, we do ask that you contact the school to arrange a suitable time/appointment slot to do this.
