Over the last two weeks all the children from Year 1 – 6 have been working hard on their assessments. In line with the new curriculum the school has introduced a brand new assessment scheme which assesses English and Mathematics. These tests are designed to track each child’s progress throughout the year without the need for National Curriculum levels which are no longer being used from September 2015. The Literacy tests are for Reading, Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation. The Numeracy tests look at all areas such as number and place value, calculations, mental mathematics and measurements. These tests will then be used to track progress, inform future planning and to set individual targets which will be agreed with the child.
