Assessment at our school is ongoing for all pupils in our care. Teachers deliver the curriculum that children need using the National Curriculum.

Assessments against the National Curriculum are made by teachers and are monitored by the senior leaders in school. Children in Reception are assessed against the Early Learning Goals. Children in all other years are assessed against the National Expectations for each year group. Our school target is that pupils are in line or above national expectations in each year group.

The school uses a tracking facility that enables us to track individual, groups and classes of children. Children take the Y1 phonics test and end of key stage SATs. Parents are encouraged to communicate with teachers on the progress and attainment of their child. Termly parents' evenings and the spring term report provide more formal opportunities for this discussion. In all classes, parents are encouraged to use Tapestry to see how their child is progressing. They are also invited in for regular discussions with the class staff team.

Phonics Screening Check

The Year One Phonics Screening Check is a statutory assessment which aims to assess your child's ability to decode and blend sounds to read words accurately. This check is typically conducted towards the end of Year One, usually in June.

During the Phonics Screening Check, your child will be asked to read a list of 40 words, both real and nonsense (or "alien") words, aloud to their teacher. These words are selected to assess your child's understanding and application of phonics, the relationship between letters and sounds. The Phonics Screening Check helps identify children who may be struggling with phonics, allowing us to provide targeted support to help them catch up. By addressing any difficulties early on, we can ensure that all children have a solid foundation in reading, setting them up for future learning. Children who do not meet the expected threshold in Year One will complete the screening again in Year Two.
