Assessment & Results
During the Reception Year children’s learning is assessed using the Foundation Stage Profile. Parents are given information about their child’s progress each term.
At the end of KS1 all Year 2 children are assessed through Teacher Assessment in English, Mathematics and Science. At the end of KS2 all Year 6 children are assessed through both Teacher Assessment and Standard Tests of Attainment in English, Mathematics and Science. Children’s individual results are communicated to their parents.
Children’s progress throughout the year is reported to parents by means of a written report in July, and also at Parent/Teacher discussions, which take place in the Autumn and Spring Terms, with another optional meeting in the Summer Term.
Publication of Results
Primary schools must publish the results of Key Stage 2 tests (‘STAs’ for 11 year olds). This applies only to year groups where there are 10 or more children.
The reason for this is that, where a school has a small year group, publication might unfairly identify pupils who have Special Educational Needs in a particular subject.
Targets for Key Stage 2 STAs are published each year.
The targets we have set for the end of this year’s Key Stage 2 are:
|English||80% at level 4 or above|
|Mathematics||80% at level 4 or above|
In the STA tests at age 11, children are expected to attain level 4, unless they have specific learning difficulties, which prevent them from doing so. Level 5 represents attainment above the level expected for that age.
