Our approach to assessment in Key Stage One and Two
We assess pupil progress and attainment by following the National Curriculum 2014 in respect of age related expectations and end of year outcomes.
How will we achieve this?
The End of Year outcomes document contained on our website within each year group page provides the coverage for each year group for Reading, Writing, Maths and Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation (SPAG). This document is used by teachers as an additional tool for planning and is shared with all parents and carers at the start of each academic year.
End of Key Stage assessments
The statutory interim frameworks (available to download below) are used only to make teacher assessment judgements at the end of the key stage following the completion of the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum. They are not used to track progress throughout the Key Stages.
• The interim frameworks do not include full coverage of the content of the national curriculum (see End of Year outcomes on Year Group pages for full coverage) and focus on key aspects for assessment. Pupils achieving the different standards within this interim framework will be able to demonstrate a broader range of skills than those being assessed.
• These interim frameworks do not guide individual programmes of study, classroom practice or methodology.
• Teachers base their teacher assessment judgements on a broad range of evidence from across the curriculum for each pupil.
