At St Botolph’s C of E Academy, we endeavour to support children to achieve to the best of their abilities and reach their full potential. We believe that assessment is fundamental to being able to extend and challenge children in their learning.
Assessment serves many purposes but the main purpose in our academy, is to help teachers, parents and pupils plan their next steps in learning. On going teacher assessment is central to pupils making good progress. In EYFS we use the 'Tapestry' assessment and tracking system and the Chris Quigley 'depth of learninng' assessment and tracking system for the rest of school along with FFT aspire.
There are currently four statutory assessments and tests which schools and academies have to carry out and report to parents. These are:
EYFS profile (End of Reception)
Phonics (End of Y1)
Key Stage 1 Assessments and Tests (End of Y2)
Key Stage 2 SATs (End of Y6)
Reporting to Parents
Pupils progress through the curriculum will be reported to parents during the Autumn and Spring parent consultations. In the Summer Term, End of Year attainment will be communicated through the pupils report. This will also include information an statutory assessments, where applicable.
