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 are 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
At the end of year 1 children undertake a statutory phonics and reading check.
Following the 2017 consultation on primary assessment, the Department for Education (DfE) announced that the end of KS1 assessments would no longer be statutory from the academic year 2023 to 2024 onwards. This took effect from 1st September 2023/. The children will be assessment by teacher judgements in English reading, English writing, mathematics and science. There is no legal requirements for schools to report KS1 teacher assessments back to the DfE.
The staff and governors use the Assessments as part of their monitoring and evaluating programme.

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.
