•Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher. Children are assessed using teacher marking, observations and questioning as well as some more formal assessments. This information is used to inform daily planning as well as assess longer term progress and standards. 

•All children’s progress, including those children or young people with special educational needs, is tracked using the school’s assessment tracking system which is updated on a termly basis. A National Curriculum level and APS (average points score) is given for reading, writing and numeracy. The progress each child is making is then discussed at pupil progress meetings with the class teacher, head teacher, deputy head teacher or SENCo . 

•If your child is in Year 1 or above and is not yet working within National Curriculum levels a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will show smaller, but significant steps of progress. These levels are called ‘P levels’. 

•The success of specific targeted intervention programmes are also monitored, as are the specific targets set for individual children.

•The progress of children with a statement of SEND/ EHC Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education. 

•At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and are the results that are published nationally
