Assessment & Reporting

Early Years Foundation Stage: Children will be given a short baseline assessment when they first start  full-time education.

Year 1 Phonics Screening: The national phonics screening check was introduced in 2012 to all Year 1 pupils. It is a short, statutory assessment to ensure that children are making sufficient progress in the phonics skills to read words and are on track to become fluent readers who can enjoy reading for pleasure and for learning. The Department for Education defines the checks as “short, light-touch assessments” that take four to nine minutes to complete

 Key Stage 1 SATs: At the end of Year 2, children will be assessed using externally set tests or assessment standards which will be marked in school  by the teacher. There will be assessments/tests in maths, science, reading and writing. There will also be a Spelling, punctuation and grammar test, which will form part of the writing assessment. Children will be given a scaled score , where 100 is the expected standard for that stage.  Children will also be assessed through ongoing teacher assessment throughout the whole of Year 2.

Key Stage 2 Multiplication Check: All Y4 children will have their multiplication skills formally tested in the summer term of Year 4 from 2020. Children will be tested using an on-screen check (on a computer or a tablet), where they will have to answer multiplication questions against the clock - the test usually takes around 5 minutes. Pupils' individual results will be made available to schools, and the Department for Education will report national results to track how they change over time.


Key Stage 2 SATs: At the end of Year 6, children will take  National Tests in maths, reading and grammar, spelling and punctuation. These will be externally set and externally marked. Children will be given a scaled score, which parents will be able to compare with the average for the school, the local area and nationally. Children will also be assessed through ongoing teacher assessment throughout the whole of Year 6.

In addition to the National Assessments, teachers will assess and track all children's progress throughout the year. Assessment may be formal eg tests, or more informal, eg when a teacher is working with a small group of children and asking questions.

At the end of each year, children will be tracked against the progress made towards meeting the end of year expectations.
