Assessment Vision Statement
At Horsell C of E Junior School, knowing where children are in their educational journey is fundamental in driving their development and ensuring they are supported and challenged in their learning.
Our use of assessment informs teaching so that delivery of the curriculum can be planned to meet the needs of the whole child, to ensure we close gaps and promote excellence for all. In order to know each child, we use a continual process of assessment to support progress both emotionally and academically.
Children are encouraged to take responsibility in knowing and reviewing their own learning journey. They respond to the marking comments made by teachers in order to show their understanding. Parents are kept informed of their children’s progress through termly reports; parent consultation meetings; yearly exhibition evenings and having the opportunity to look through work after school on a weekly basis.
