Assessment

Overview

The National Curriculum sets 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.

Aims of our system

  • To develop a system that assesses children accurately against the end of year expectations set in the National Curriculum for reading, writing and maths.
  • To show the progress children are making, across an academic year, towards the end of year expectations. 

Objectives

Staff within the school assess the children against individual objectives. The objectives we use are:

  • Maths - White Rose Maths objectives
  • Reading - Michael Tidd (Headteacher in West Sussex) designed objectives (see below)
  • Writing - our own objectives developed by the staff alongside a consultant 

We track the children against individual objectives in order to determine if they meet the end of year expectations. Progress towards meeting end of year expectations is tracked through data collections and pupil progress meetings during the year.

RE assessments - currently being updated

As a church school, we also assess children's progress within the RE curriculum. Here is some more information about how we do this.
