Every day our teachers are informally ‘assessing’ your child's individual strengths and weaknesses in all subjects. The better we know your child, the more we are able to offer our individualised teaching approach that supports, encourages and challenges your child to achieve at a higher level.
On a day to day basis, the best way to know how well your child is doing is to talk with their class teacher. They will be able to give you a strong indication of how well they are doing as well as areas for improvement.
We hold Assessment Weeks three times a year in reading, writing, phonics and maths, and these are followed by a ‘Pupil Progress’ Review where teachers record the results of the assessments and continue to discuss each pupil with the Senior Leadership Team. Teachers will then share targets with pupils and parents.
Each year, you will also receive three 'reports'. The first will be within the first eight weeks of the academic year (a "Settling In Report"), the second is a mid-year report, usually in mid-March, and then finally an end-of-term report in June.
In addition, we hold Parents’ Evenings (a scheduled 1-to-1 time with the class teacher) two times a year, normally in mid/late March and end of June.
If you have further questions, please contact your child’s class teacher. Please also find attached some general information on Understanding Assessments below.
