Our assessment policy is aligned to our curriculum and is an integral part of the learning process. The curriculum is mapped out against end of year, age-related expectations (AREs), ensuring quality in-depth teaching and learning. Central to this is a focus on formative assessment as a tool to guide learning. Assessment in our school generates continuous improvement and supports achievement. It takes place in all year groups and across all subject areas. All assessment in our school is meaningful and avoids unnecessary recording or tracking. The purpose of any assessment is to improve learning. Assessments can take the form of observations, discussions, formal assessment of written work and tests. Our approach is inclusive and we strive for children of all abilities to achieve.
