The Explanations

  • Children use the evidence of the assessments (which take different forms) to target next stage improvements.

  • We measure overall academic achievement throughout the school and benchmark it against international standards which also show improvement.

The Evidence

  • Evidence of children’s love of learning can be seen across the school by their engagement in lessons; records of learning in traditional workbooks and electric media and in displays around the school; in their work with independent study outside the school and their positive attitude towards their teachers and fellow students.
