Assessment is an integral part of day to day teaching and learning. All staff assess the progress and attainment of children on an ongoing basis so that they can adapt lessons accordingly and ensure the children are always learning.

In order to make a judgements about a child’s attainment and progress through the course of their time at school, we have adopted an assessment system based on the South Gloucestershire model which focuses on Age Related Expectations. Integral to this is the concept of mastery of the content of the National Curriculum for each specific year group. This means that children are required to explore concepts in greater depth and to apply their learning more readily.

The system works such that:

  • If a child is in Year 1, the expectation is that they are ‘secure’ in their year group objectives by the end of the year. This will be known as Year 1 Secure or Y1S.
  • If a child is in Year 4, they are expected to be Year 4 Secure or Y4S.

To help us measure progress through the school, we expect children to be ‘emerging’ in their year group objectives by the end of Term 2, i.e. Year 3 Emerging (Y3E). We expect them to be ‘developing’ by the end of Term 4, i.e. Year 5 Developing (Y5D). Some children will be judged as working at Greater Depth which means they are particularly able to apply concepts learnt across a range of situations.

At Year 2 and Year 6, the Government expects all children to take part in end of Key Stage examinations, also known as SATs. Throughout each Key Stage, children work towards the Expected Standard or beyond so that they are working at Greater Depth.
