At St Helen’s Primary, pupils are continuously assessed in an informal way as part of the daily class routine. A wide range of different assessment strategies are used to encourage pupils to recognise their own strengths and areas for development.
In addition to this, at different points throughout the year, standardised assessments may be used to help teachers assess pupil progress and to identify any strengths and diagnose any barriers to learning.
Parents are invited to attend parents evenings in Term 1 (Aug – Dec) and Term 2 (Jan – Jun) to discuss their child’s progress and agreed targets set.
All parents will receive a written school report in Term 2 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.
