Assessments

Foundation stage profile

Children are assessed in the reception class where staff will add information to an assessment profile forwarded from Pre-School for each individual. This will be shared at parent consultation meetings. Your child will have a learning journey book of photos and comments which will be available during the year for you to add to.

Year One phonic check

All children in Year 1 will participate in a phonics check.  This assessment will be administered by class teacher Sarah Wood.  Results are included within the Year 1 end of term report.

SATS

Children in Year 2 and Year 6 are assessed during May. The results of these assessments are reported annually to the parents by the governing body. Optional SATs materials are used in years 3, 4 and 5 to assist teacher assessment of pupil progress.

Marking and assessment

We aim to provide feedback to children through marking so that they have specific advice about improvements to their work. Children are given time to read and review their work following marking.

Family consultations

Parents are very welcome in school and we aim to involve them with their children’s education as much as possible. Family consultation evenings take place in the Autumn and Spring terms. In addition to this if you wish to meet with the class teacher please arrange an appointment after school. The Headteacher is always happy to listen to concerns or to offer support. Please call at the office or telephone for an appointment.

Reports to parents

At the end of each year your child will bring home a full report detailing progress and achievements across the curriculum.   In addition, an Effort and Achievement report for English, maths and science is shared with children and then brought home at the end of each half term.   Parents / Carers are encouraged to provide feedback to the school.
