Assessment

At Senacre Wood Primary School, we use assessment to inform teachers’ planning. This is because it is only by continually assessing what children have learnt and understood, that we can know what “next steps” should be planned.  

In order to be ‘secondary ready’ children need to meet the required end of Key Stage 2 expectations; this is broken down into key outcomes for each curriculum year. We use the National Curriculum objectives to assess outcomes for children at the end of each curriculum year.

We use the following code to assess pupils knowledge of the curriculum, against age-related expectations, in reading, writing and maths.

At the end of the academic year, if a pupil reaches D+, S or M, they are working at the expected standard for their year group.
Pupils who are working at M are also demonstrating a deeper level of understanding. 

Progress

There is an expectation that pupils will move through the Curriculum, and related programmes of study, at broadly the same pace. There will however be times when this is not the case.
