The bigger picture for every child and parents
Of course, we know that one assessment does not paint a full picture of any one child and that is why we use many other forms of assessment for Y1-6 to evidence our teachers’ judgements. For example, we will use PUMA maths assessments, Big Cat reading, Bug Club, phonics checks. These coupled with the daily teacher assessments in lessons provide an overall picture of your child’s learning. Our teachers are always happy to answer any questions about your child’s progress so please speak to your class teacher if you have any questions.
Assessment in Early Years
In EYFS (F1-F3), the teachers and children follow the EYFS curriculum, so their methods of assessment differ slightly. The teachers in F1-F3 also assess the children every day and in every lesson, helping them provide next step learning opportunities. You will have also noticed that we have introduced a new platform for EYFS assessment this year called Evidence Me.
