Assessment, Record Keeping and Reporting
Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process. Assessments are made by teachers throughout the school year to identify next steps in pupil learning. These are undertaken in a variety of forms, including regular pupil progress meetings, observations, teacher marking/pupil response, teacher-pupil discussion, self/peer marking, simulations and practical/oral/written/memory tasks. Throughout Key Stage Two, the children will be given assistance with the skills and concepts necessary to help them attempt any of the above assessments with confidence and to the best of their ability.
Each year pupils in Key Stage One (Years 1-2) complete SATs (Standardised Assessment Tasks) in Reading, Writing and Mathematics.
In Key Stage Two (Years 3-6) further SATs are taken just before they leave primary school.
Parent/carer – teacher consultation meetings
There will be a consultation meeting for all parents/carers
There will be a consultation meeting for all parents/carers alongside a written report.
Non residential parents can of course attend consultation meetings and receive reports either alongside their former partner where relationships are amicable or if necessary at a separate time. Do get in touch and let us know how we can help you.
Of course, we are happy to meet with parents outside of these times. If you would like to meet with the class teacher, please speak to the admin team to arrange a meeting with the class teacher. It is also possible to send a message to the class teacher via Class Dojo – ask the class teacher to provide login details if you haven’t already signed up to this.
