Staff know their pupils really well and this means that we can meet their needs at all times. Pupils' progress is monitored at every stage of their learning to make sure that every individual is given extra support or a higher level of challenge as appropriate. On-going assessment is used to inform teachers' planning on a daily basis. Teachers use questioning, observations and learners' work to know where the learners are and inform them of how they can move them on in their learning.
There is a legal requirement that key assessments are made at the end of EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Termly assessments are completed using APP (Assessing Pupils Progress) materials and tests.
There are regular opportunities where we share the children's progress and to keep you fully informed about what is happening in school. We also pride ourselves in our 'on the gate' presence which is invaluable in the process of sharing information to help your child.
Towards the end of the school year you will receive a written report on your child's work and progress throughout the year. Comments on behaviour and attitude as well as attendance figures are also given. You and your child will have the opportunity to add your own comments to the report.
