The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Foundation Stage children are assessed using the Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage document. They are assessed on entry against age related bands and then again at the end of term 2 and term 4. At the end of the Foundation Stage the children are assessed against the Early Learning Goals which are the end of Foundation Stage statements. Evidence to inform our assessments are collected throughout the year and are carried out through a combination of observations, group and individual work.
Key Stage 1 National Curriculum Assessment
In the first half of the summer term, before transfer to Noremarsh Junior School, our year 2 children will undertake National Curriculum Tests in English and Maths. They are also assessed by their teacher in English, Maths and Science.
Towards the end of year 2 children undertake English and maths tests and they are also assessed in speaking and listening and science.
More information for parents is available here National Curriculum Assessments 2019
At the end of year 1 children undertake a statutory phonics and reading check.
The staff and governors use the Assessments as part of their monitoring and evaluating programme.
Our KS1 results can be found here KS1 P2 Comparative England 2019
There were no Statutory Assessments in 2020 due to the global pandemic.

Keeping you informed
Parent meetings are held twice a year. These meetings give you the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher and discuss your child’s progress. We welcome your interest and hope that you will not feel it necessary to wait until an open evening to see a member of staff if you are at all concerned about your child.
We also provide annually, a written report on each pupil to give parents an overall view of their child’s progress.
At times, special meetings and workshops are held on specific subjects or educational matters.
