Annual Assessment

Regular assessment is a necessary part of the children’s learning in order to track our children’s progress towards their individual targets and provide appropriate intervention and support at integral times on their educational journey.

Assessment can take many forms.  It occurs on a daily basis with the Class Teacher marking and discussing the children’s work with them.  This allows for ‘next steps’ to be established ensuring that the children know what they need to do in order to improve their performance, particularly in literacy and numeracy.  Additionally, on a termly basis more formal assessment pieces are addressed to make a summative judgment across all subjects and areas of learning.

As you will see from the table below we have a statutory obligation to take part in national testing annually in accordance with Welsh Government guidelines. 

As our parents it is important for you to know that it is always ensured that our children’s wellbeing is carefully considered during these assessment periods.  Our culture is to approach testing with due regard to correct procedure whilst creating a relaxed atmosphere conducive to the learners trying their very best and demonstrating their highest possible performance level.
