In school we are continually assessing the children’s understanding and responding to the needs that we identify. We also conduct internal tests to ensure that our assessments are accurate and to prepare children for tests and examinations that they will take during their whole school career.
We are required by the government to complete statutory tests at certain stages of the children’s schooling and these are reported externally. The results are then used to form the information provided on the Performance League Tables.
What will be reported to parents at the end of year 6?
The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children will be given scaled scores. You will receive your child’s scaled score and whether they have reached the expected age related standard.
For the year groups where there is no statutory reporting of assessments to the government, teacher assessments are reported to parents twice each year.
