Assessment

Children's learning is assessed continually throughout the year. Teachers use this assessment information when planning future learning.

For Reading, Writing and Mathematics, we use Key Learning Indicators of Performance(KLIPS) to measure pupil attainment and progress.

In other national curriculum subjects, children's learning in each year group is measured against outcomes linked to the Key Stage content. At the end of the academic year, a judgement is made to determine whether a child is 'Secure' in the Year Group expectations.

Statutory Assessment:

In 2016, following the introduction on the new National Curriculum, pupils in Year 6 and in Year 2 will be assessed against the 'Interim teacher assessment frameworks' for their respective Key Stage.

This assessment will include national assessment tests in Reading, Spelling and Grammar, and Mathematics. The teachers also assess pupil attainment in Writing and Science.

Year 2 and Year 6 pupils will take the appropriate tests in May.

Changes to KS2 SATs in 2016: what parents need to know.

For pupils in Year 1, there is a phonics screening test in June to assess their ability to apply knowledge of phonics (letters and sounds) when decoding words. Pupils in Year 2, who didn't pass the phonics test in Year 1, are re-tested.

SATs Results:

We publish the SATs results for Key Stage 2 when they are received.
