Assessment 2015 - 2017

In September 2015 we introduced a new assessment tracking system in school. An information evening was held to explain some of the changes.


The curriculum has been split into 3 'Milestones'.


Year 1 Year 3 Year 5
Year 2 Year 4

Year 6


Our new assessment system assesses the depth of children's learning and understanding of a subject. Over each milestone, we assess whether children have a Basic, Advancing or Deep understanding of the objectives taught.


An 'average' child is expected to have secured an 'Advancing' understanding by the end of the milestone.



Year 2 and Year 6 will still sit National Tests in May. These will generate a scaled score where 100 is the expected standard, anything below 100 is working towards the national standard and anything significantly above 100 is a mastery standard.


The presentation from the Assessment Information Evening is available below.
