Each half term the class teacher will assess the children against the end of year Age Related Expectations (ARE) using Target Tracker, Children's performance in class, and the children's workbooks will be used to inform their judgements. Target Tracker is used by 1 in 4 schools in England, giving a wealth of data to support teacher judgements.
The posters below are the age related expectations that are used.
Every full term, the children are assessed using a standardised assessment (test paper). This will be done at the children's pace and usually in a small group. This will assess the children against a nationally standardised score, and is used to help triangulate our judgements.
Children are regularly assessed in their phonics using the Government phonics check materials.
