Assessment, Record Keeping and Reporting


Assessment is an integral part of the teaching and learning process.  Assessments are made by teachers throughout the school year to identify next steps in pupil learning.  These are undertaken in a variety of forms, including regular pupil progress meetings, observations, teacher marking/pupil response, teacher-pupil discussion, self/peer marking, simulations and practical/oral/written/memory tasks. 


Statutory Assessments:

  • Year 1 - In Year one children complete the phonics screening check. This is undertaken in June and involves the children reading (decoding) forty words. 
  • Year 2 - Year two children complete SATs (Standardised Assessment Tasks) in Reading, Writing and Maths. 
  • Year 6 - In Year six further SATs are taken before the children leave primary school.
