Our pupils are assessed every half term whether it is using teacher assessment or more formal assessment which follow the ARK guidelines. Pupils are assessed in reading, writing, speaking and listening, mathematics and science.
Every September, pupils in Years 1–6 are assessed to find their Reading and Spelling age which is repeated in July. Pupils in Year 1 are also baselined in reading, phonics, writing and mathematics to find an accurate national curriculum level. Pupils in Year 6 are also assessed in September using a past SATs paper. Pupils in Nursery and Reception are also baselined in the Prime and Specific areas of the curriculum which are described under Curriculum.
