Since the removal of National Curriculum levels descriptors and the implementation of the new curriculum we are working in partnership with the local authority (LA), local cluster schools (ECLC) and external agencies to use an assessment tool that will work with our curriculum, students, parents and staff.
The school carries out summative assessments four times a year for Reading, Writing and Maths against the end of year expectations. These assessments are shared with parents at each assessment point.
“pupils’ skills in reading, writing and mathematics are improving rapidly and pupils are well prepared for entry into each key stage of their education.”
“In 2016, most children reached a good level of development at the end of the Reception Year from broadly average starting points.”
“Achievement at key stages 1 and 2 is good over time..”
“The proportion of pupils meeting the expected threshold in the phonics screening check at the end of Year 1, including those who are disadvantaged, has improved to above average in 2016.”
“Progress in writing is improving rapidly ...”
“Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities make good progress as a result of well-targeted support from highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants.”
Early Years parents have access to Early Essence (or E2P+SEND) to view and contribute to their child's learning journey. Key Stage 1 and 2 parents receive assessment information four times a year after each assessment point.
If you have an Apple device, you can now download the parent app to upload your own photographs/videos/comments. Type ‘E2P+Family’ into the app store to download.
