Assessment in Primary School

As your child goes through primary school he/she will be assessed in order to find out how well he/she is doing.

Assessment takes many forms and in one sense is an on-going process throughout the school day. At present the school monitors learning through the use of the Cornerstones curriculum. Staff will use their professional judgement and test results along with bench-marking with other schools.

At certain points in your child's primary education he/she will be formally assessed in more of a familiar test process. Years 2 and 6 take part in national tests – SATs whilst Year 1 pupils take the Phonics Screening test in order to assess their reading skills.

If you would like any more information, please contact the school.
