In September 2014, the Government introduced a new National Curriculum. This set out the expectation of what should be taught within each year group. The full National Curriculum can be found here.
Please note some subjects have objectives for Key Stages rather than individual year groups. Please see the curriculum section of our school website for details of how we break these down for different year groups.
Each school was given the autonomy to decide upon their own approach to assessment, but without the use of levels.
This information on this page is designed to give you details of our assessment system at Bramley St Peter’s.
Aims of our system
Staff within the school are using the Michael Tidd (a Deputy Headteacher from Nottinghamshire) objectives as the basis for our assessment for maths, reading and writing. These documents outline the objectives.
These objectives take key aspects from the National Curriculum and use them to assess where children are in relation to the end of year expectation.
Michael’s rationale for this model is as follows:
“My model of assessment and tracking is based on some key principles:
Consequently, my model requires only a limited number of judgements against objectives each year (ranging between 10 and 30 depending on subject and year group).”
We track children against the individual objectives and the end of year expectations (all the objectives combined).
Here is some information to explain how we do this.
As a church school, we also assess children's progress within the RE curriculum. Here is some more information about how we do this.
