13. How we assess ?
We use a wide range the children' s work both written and verbal and a range of standardised tests to assess our children's attainment and progress. We use age related expectations to support our assessment and we use our Sims database to track children's attainment and progress across the years, this helps us identify various groups of children requiring additional intervention. The teachers take part in progress meetings where each individual child is discussed and any needs are identified and planned for. The children are also set targets both numerically and statements which are in line with ensuring children make expected progress. If you would like further information about our assessment cycle and procedures it can be found within the policies section of the website or contact the school office.
