Assessment

Assessment is a continuous process, integral to learning and teaching. It is how teachers gain knowledge of their pupils’ needs, achievements and abilities, enabling planning and delivery to be more effective, thereby raising attainment for every child.

At Grange the assessment cycle consists of:

  • Baseline reception assessment

  • Phonics screening check

  • End of Key Stage 1 and 2 statutory assessments

  • Year 4 times tables assessment

  • Regular assessments in: mathematics, reading, writing, science and grammar, punctuation and spelling.

  • Teacher assessments in all foundation subjects at the end of each unit.

  • Foundation subject investigations carried out at the end of each year.

School-based assessments:

Throughout the year, in order to determine whether children are meeting age related expectations and have made progress, we assess children using NFER National Curriculum-style tests. Children will be assessed against age-related expectations at standards based on the scaled score model used for SATs. The categories for assessment are:

  • B / B+ below the expected standard

  • W / W+ working towards the expected standard

  • Exp / Exp+ at the expected standard

  • GD / GD+ above the expected standard.

Parents are informed regularly of their child's attainment and progress.
