Assessment

Our teachers make ongoing assessment judgements every day when teaching and use these to inform future plans and learning for our children. In addition to these daily formative assessments we use a suite of Summative assessments (tests) which are carried out each term.

We use a suite of tests produced by NFER. NFER has many years' experience in designing robust and reliable assessments across the primary phase. The tests are fully aligned to the 2014 National Curriculum. We use the tests in the following ways:

 

  • The autumn term to provide a baseline of what a pupil can do and provide further information to guide teaching and learning
  • The summer term to measure year-on-year progress and end of year achievement
  • Both the summer and autumn term (two sets of tests) to help monitor pupil progress within year groups

 

You can view some sample pages from these tests on the NFER website. https://www.nfer.ac.uk/schools/nfer-tests/sample-materials-nfer-tests
