Assessment and Perfomance

Assessment is an important part of teaching and learning. We assess our children in several ways:

– Informally so that we can see how well they are learning during each lesson and Teachers can adapt their teaching, reinforce learning points or challenge children to extend learning

– Formatively by carrying out specific tests and marking against key learning objectives

– Summatively to provide an attainment grade against Age Related Expectations set by the Government

Teachers provide Attainment and Progress Reports to parents/carers each term and provide verbal or written reports to accompany and explain these. It is very important that we work in partnership to ensure every child achieves their absolute best.

Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) take place in the Summer Term of Year 6. The Government want to check how well children are progressing through the education system and so every child in the country sits statutory tests at key points in their education. Tests are taken in Reading, Grammar Punctuation & Spelling Maths. Teacher assessments are reported at a national level in Writing and Science.

It is very important that Yr6 children are not absent from school during the national tests which usually take place around May.

Assessment Results:

The government will not publish KS2 school level data for the 2021 to 2022 academic year. They have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.

2019 results below:

 Average progress that pupils have made in Reading between KS1 and KS2 2.4
 Average progress that pupils have made in Writing between KS1 and KS2 3.1
 Average progress that pupils have made in Maths between KS1 and KS2 2.8
 Pupils’ average score in the Reading test 106 (scaled score)
 Pupils’ average score in the Maths test 107  (scaled score)
Pupils who achieved the expected standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics 87%
Pupils who achieved a higher standard in Reading, Writing and Mathematics 13%
