Assessment and Homework
Assessment is intended to help staff recognise pupil achievement and progress; to establish what children know, understand and can do and to identify strengths and weaknesses, so that staff can plan for the next steps in their learning.
Children will be involved in Statutory Assessment procedures at key points during their educational career. At the end of the Reception Year, children are assessed against their achievement of the Early Learning Goals in all aspects of the EYFS curriculum. In Year 1, children will complete the statutory Phonics Screening test and in Years 2 and 6 Statutory Assessment commonly known as End of Key Stage National Tests are completed. The results from all these assessments are reported to parents, the local authority and DfE.
Across the school, children will receive regular homework (in addition to regular reading books) to support the learning that has taken place within school.
