Assessment and Attainment

The children are assessed regularly throughout the year  using  ‘teacher judgement.’ This is based on work carried out  linked to Target Tracker statements and KPI (Key performance indicators) from the National curriculum, as well as through use of professionally produced written assessments. Children are assessed against Age Related Expectations (ARE) using ‘Year Bands’ on Target Tracker. The band relates to the year group the child is in. e.g. Year 1 is Band 1, Year 2 is Band 2. Each band is approximately 3 terms of learning which is denoted by the steps:

1.     ‘B’, Beginning,              2. ‘W’, Working Within                       3. ‘S’, Secure.

This is what this looks like for each year group:

In addition, Year 1 have a phonics screening assessment. Children who do not meet the required standard re-sit this in Year 2.
