How will the school measure the progress of your child in school?
The school is committed to continually monitoring the progress of all the children in the school. This takes place in a number of ways:
- Progress is continually monitored by the class teachers in lessons and by looking at books.
- Some formal assessments are made throughout the year.
- Data and levels from these assessments are recorded in line with Early Years Foundation Stage and National Curriculum requirements. Children who may not be meeting National Curriculum requirements may be assessed against a more sensitive levelling approach called The Engagement model.
- At the end of each Key Stage (Year 2 and 6) children are formally assessed using Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs). These are required by the Government and results published nationally. In addition children in Year 1 will also complete a Phonics Screening check.
- Children receiving additional support will have this evaluated at the end of every half term to ensure the support is effective and whether it needs to continue be increased or stopped.
- The progress of children on an EHC Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review meeting with all adults involved invited to attend.
- The SENDCo monitors the progress of all SEND children.
