Assessment for Learning

What does assessment for learning mean?

“Assessment for learning is the process of seeking and interpreting evidence for use by
learners and their teachers to decide where the learners are in their learning, where they need to go and how best to get there”.    Assessment for Learning Strategy Group 

We try to keep parents informed of their child's progress. Parent/teacher consultation days are held each term. A child's assessment targets goes out to parents in February and a formal written report in July. SATs results and school test results are published in the end of year report.

In addition, over the year there are a number of curriculum evenings and talks for parents. These include:

  • A termly class meeting to discuss what your child will be studying this term
  • A chance to learn more about the curriculum through curriculum evenings
  • Mums and Dads into School days

​A Foundation Stage profile is completed for each child in their first year in school together with their Wow book. They cover all the progress they have made during their first year at school and are shared with parents during the summer term.

We have an 'open door' policy and all teachers are available everyday in the playground before and after school to discuss any immediate concerns with parents on an informal basis. Alternatively, you can ring the school office to make an appointment. The headteacher is available at out parent forum meetings to discuss any parents' concerns or comments.
