A child’s progress is assessed using a variety of methods including observation and during more formal tasks and tests.
These outcomes are used in planning and for setting future learning targets for the child; they also form the basis of discussion between parent and teacher when they meet to discuss a child’s progress, which is on at least two occasions during the year.
During Year 2, Standard Assessment Tasks and Tests (SAT’s) take place. These together with teacher assessments will be matched with National Curriculum level descriptors to form the “SAT’s Results” for the school at Key Stage 1.
Children in Year 3 and Year 4 also take Optional SAT’s tests, these help us to track the children’s progress and target learning in areas of weakness as well as areas of excellence.
