Assessment Information for families.
The National Curriculum sets out what is to be taught in each year group. Children will meet the national standard each year if they can show that they know and understand everything they have covered in the year. We want them to be ‘SECURE’ in this national standard each year, although some will find this more difficult and will be ‘DEVELOPING’ towards the standard. Some will be able to show a deeper understanding and will be considered to understand the curriculum at a 'GREATER DEPTH'.
Some children with significant additional needs will be following an adapted curriculum through individual education plans (IEPs). This will only be a very small minority of children in school and parents will receive termly updates and reviews of their progress towards IEP targets and any new targets that have been set.
Teachers are able to make informed decisions about how far each child has progressed through their year group’s skills in reading, writing, maths and science by checking skills off against a list of criteria from the National Curriculum. For example, if a child finishes the year as 'Secure' then the following year they will be expected to meet the secure criteria again, or improve and move towards ‘Greater Depth’. When our teachers have finished assessing their pupils in July of this year, this data will be used to create targets for the children to meet by next July.
The system also allows us to check progress on a half–termly basis more easily between one year and the next.
