Assessment and progress
What processes are used to track progress and how does this feed into the classroom?
At Horsell Church of England Junior School, we believe that assessment forms an integral part of effective teaching and learning, allowing children to achieve their full potential. Ongoing assessment is carried out as part of daily teaching practice. This is in addition to more formal methods of assessment, which include English and maths written tests, which are performed regularly throughout the year.
At the end of Year 6, children sit the National tests known as ‘Key Stage 2 SATs’. You can find our latest school and comparative national figures here.
Each half term every child’s progress is reviewed and interventions are put into place if required. Before each parent consultation a summary sheet is sent out to parents indicating your child’s conduct, learning attitude, progress in reading and the next steps in learning. These can then be discussed at the parent consultation, which your child is also invited to attend.
