Assessment Information

Assessment at Whiteheath 

We use assessment to give reliable information to parents about how their child is performing by: 

  •  Allowing meaningful tracking of pupils towards end of key stage expectations in the curriculum, including regular feedback to parents at parents evening or reports. 
  • Provide information which is transferable and easily understood and covers both qualitative and quantitative assessment.
  •  Differentiate attainment between pupils of different abilities, giving early recognition of pupils who are falling behind and those who are excelling.
  •  Are reliable and free from bias.

Help drive improvement for pupils and teachers:

  • Assessment is closely linked to improving the quality of teaching.
  • Assessment feedback to pupils contributes to improved learning and is focused on specific and tangible objectives.
  • Assessment is recorded termly and demonstrates comparison against expected standards and reflects progress over time.

Make sure the school is keeping up with external best practice and innovation;

  •  Assessment is created in consultation with those delivering best practice locally.
  • Assessments created in consideration of, and are benchmarked against, international best practice

Further information

 

Parents should follow the general advice from schools about supporting your child’s learning throughout the year. You do not need to prepare your children for the tests. Your child’s teacher will ensure your child is prepared.

 

Your child’s teacher will be able to answer any queries about the tests, or you can visit www.gov.uk/STA for more details.

 

If you want to see a sample of the tests your child will take, we have published some here: www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum-assessments-2016-sample-materials

 

In June we will provide another leaflet to explain how and when the tests and assessments will be reported to parents. We will also provide information about how the results are used. Visit

www.gov.uk/government/publications/2017-national-curriculum-tests-for-key-stages-1-and-2-information-for-parents for more details.
