How will we measure the progress of your child in school?

  • Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
  • His/her progress is reviewed formally every term and a National Curriculum level given in reading, writing, and mathematics.
  • If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet at National Curriculum levels, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress. The levels are called ‘P levels’.
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and are the results that are published nationally.
  • The progress of children with a statement of SEND/EHC Plan is formally assessed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education.
  • The Inclusion Leader will also check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group that they take part in, through monitoring visits and looking at progress data. For children participating in interventions which target their Social, Emotional and Mental Wellbeing, qualitative assessments will be undertaken.
