The children in the Early Years classes will work towards targets from the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
All children are formally assessed at age 7 and 11 in National Curriculum subjects at the end of each key stage (SATs). However all teachers are assessing the children on an informal basis regularly, looking at different aspects and various subjects. The school has a half-termly system of assessment, which covers English, Mathematics and subject focused topic work. A range of documentary evidence is available in school, on request, detailing English, Maths and National Curriculum programmes of study for all subjects.
Parent interviews are arranged on two occasions during the school year: In the autumn term, as an opportunity for you to meet your child’s new teacher, to share targets and information, also to discuss how your child has settled in his or her new class. Also in the spring term, to discuss your child’s progress at the mid-point in the year.We operate an online booking system, so you can choose a convenient day and time slot.
Parents are welcome to see staff to discuss problems which may arise at other times. Where discussion is required, involving other members of staff, this is usually arranged at the end of the school day.
Every pupil receives a written end of year report at the end of each academic year.
