Assessment

Regular observations and record keeping provide a basis for the continual assessment of the areas of learning in the Foundation Stage. These profiles become a report and establish the correct point for children to access the early stages of the National Curriculum as they progress
into Year 1; these are readily accessible for parents in the Foundation Stage.

The children’s progress within the different areas of National Curriculum is recorded throughout the year. Teacher assessment and testing is an ongoing process and is used to determine what a child can do. Through oral questioning, observations and written class or homework, areas of understanding and weaknesses can be established. It provides the teacher with the information necessary for planning to meet the needs of individual children and ensures continuity and progression.

Children are assessed in English and Mathematics at the end of Key Stage 1 (7+ years) and in English, Mathematics and Science at the end of Key Stage 2.
