As a school we have changed the way that we assess the children's progress from Y1 up to Y6 as the levels previously used nationally are no longer in use.
We now use a system called Target Tracker that assesses how the children are progressing through their year group's objectives. The focus is on the breadth of learning within the year and mastering this before moving on rather than just trying to make a constant vertical climb through the levels with the chance of building up 'gaps of learning'.
We use 'statements' in reading, writing and maths that relate to the national curriculum objectives and the children's coverage of and progress through these are shown in the following way -
Coloured highlighting show the progress that your child is making with the statements -
Red - Beginning to understood
Blue - Secure
Yellow - Mastered
The accumulation of these statements give an overall judgement within the year group band.
Below are the statements which children are assessed against. When reporting to parents teachers will give an overview on both attainment and progress.
