Assessment is primarily on-going and formative. Staff observe, question, listen and mark children’s work regularly/daily, allowing them to build up a picture of children’s strengths and areas for development. Follow up work will be planned for if needed. At the end of every unit teachers must give children a post assessment to assess how well children have mastered a concept. These assessments must include fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions and will review all previous concepts covered in the year. Useful websites/documents to use to create these assessments include: NCETM and White Rose Mastery Documents. The success with which children answer these questions should indicate how deeply they have understood the concept. Teachers must keep records of how well the children have completed the assessment.
In most year groups (Years 1, 3, 4 and 5) summative assessment will be carried out termly to support teacher assessment. This will involve children completing the NFER tests. The questions will validate the teacher’s assessment and support teachers in accurate assessment. Year 2 and Year 6 will complete separate assessments using practise SATS materials.
