Our Approach to Assessment

Throughout the year, your child’s attainment will be judged against the criteria set out in the year group-equivalent Standard and Expectations. This on-going judgement will identify what children have achieved and what they need to do next.  Information regarding the specific standards and expectations can be found by using the links in the Standards and Expectations seciton of this page.

In addition to this, the children in Year 2 to Year 6 are assessed towards the end of each term in: reading; writing; GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) and mathematics.  The outcomes of these assessments will be reported to parents at the start of the following term.
