35. Assessment

Children’s progress in the National Curriculum is measured by their teachers throughout their time at St Peter’s and assessments of the level at which they are working are made regularly. In addition, at the end of Key Stage 1 (age 7) and Key Stage 2 (age 11), there is a system of national testing in English and Mathematics.

At age 7 children’s progress will be tested in reading, writing (including spelling and handwriting) and Mathematics through a series of specifically designed activities and tests administered by their teachers during the spring and summer terms.  The results of these will back up the teacher’s assessment of the level children are achieving and will be shared with parents in the Learning Journeys at the end of the year.

Most 11 year olds will take part in assessments in English and Maths spread over a week in May.  The results of these and the teacher’s assessment will be shared with you and passed onto the secondary school that your child is transferring to.

At St. Peter’s most children are also assessed at pause points throughout the year.  We will share the outcomes of these assessments with you through the parent consultations and learning journeys.
