Assessment and Target Setting

At the beginning of the school year, attainment targets are set for all pupils in reading, writing, maths and science.

Attainment targets are set based on prior attainment at the end of either EYFS or Key Stage 1 and pupil achievement. These targets are shared with parents at parents evening.

Teachers assess children against statutory requirements of the National Curriculum in all subjects. Attainment in reading, writing and maths is measured against age-related expectations set out in the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. Where the curriculum expectations span 2 years, teachers use KPI’s based on these statements to make an assessment of whether a pupil is on track to meet the expected standard by the end of the key stage. Teachers assess during and after every lesson. This short-term formative assessment informs future planning and ensures that assessment is being used to enhance learning. Self and peer assessment is also used and children are involved in the process of assessment.

In all other subjects, pupils will be assessed annually against key skills and milestones linked to age-related expectations set out by the new National Curriculum. Subject leaders will gather the information and evaluate standards in their subject, along with looking at areas of strength and weakness. This information is then passed to the Head of School who evaluates this at a whole school level. The class teacher comments on each child’s progress in the annual school report to parents.
