How will we measure the progress of your child in school? And how will I know about this?

  • Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
  • His/her progress is reviewed formally every term and assessed against national expectations for reading, writing and maths as well as for progress in other areas, as appropriate, such as attendance, engagement in learning and behaviour.
  • If your child is reaching the end of Year 1 and above, but is not yet at national expectations, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show  smaller but significant steps of progress.  The levels are called ‘P levels’.
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of Year 2 and Year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). This is something the government requires all schools to do and are the results that are published nationally.)
  • The progress of children with an EHC Plan/ Statement of SEN is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults involved with the child’s education. Additionally these children will have an IEP (or PLP) which will be reviewed with your involvement every term and the plan for the next term made.
  • The AHT Inclusion will also check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group that they take part in.
  • A range of ways will be used to keep you informed, which may include:
    • Home/school book
    • Letters/certificates sent home
    • Additional meetings as required
    • Reports
