Impact is how we know that our curriculum is doing what we intended - that is are the children safe, happy, creative, learning and successful ?
We measure impact in several ways:
- We ask the pupils, through the school council, class discussions and circle time activities for their feedback on their learning.
- We ask the parents, through parent surveys and inviting feedback on our curriculum offer (this was vital during lockdown and helped us to design a curriculum to support our families)
- We measure the pupil's progress through seeing their progress in their writing, their progress in phonics and reading levels and their mathematics work. Pupil workbooks provide good evidence for the impact of our curriculum.
- In Early Years, Tapestry is used to assess the children against the Early Years Curriculum. This assessment is ongoing throughout the year.
- In Year 1 and 2, a combination of standardised assessment and teacher assessment is used to assess the children against age related expectations. Teacher Assessments are undertaken half termly. Teacher assessment is supported by Target Tracker statements.
