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 (ARE). 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.

Teachers know the children well and make judgements to assess progress throughout the year. They look at whether a child is meeting age related expectations, is working just below or has achieved greater depth within the expected standard.

In 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. Children in Year 1 are also expected to participate in the statutory phonics screening check; those who do not pass in Year 1, will be reassessed in Year 2. There is also a multiplication tables check for those children in Year 4.
