Assessment

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.

Key Stage 2 Progress 2016

By making comparisons between children’s key stage 1 and key stage 2 results a progress score can achieved for a school.

Progress scores 

  • If the score is 0 the school ensures that the children progress in this subject as well as other children do nationally.
  • If the score is below 0 this shows the children in the school do worse in this subject than other children do nationally.
  • If the score is above 0 the school ensures that the children progress better in this subject than other children do nationally.
