How we measure pupil performance
- At the start of each school year, class teachers in Years 1 to 6 carry out a baseline assessment in maths and English.
- In EYFS, a baseline is done in September and then regular observation takes place and records kept thereafter using Tapestry.
- Each term in Year 1 to 6 assessments are carried out in maths and English and data is kept on electronic spreadsheets overseen by the Deputy Head for Curriculum and Assessment. The results of these tests are reviewed with the class teachers and the Deputy Head and also the Inclusion Leader to assist with classroom planning and booster groups.
- The end of year annual report to parents reflects the outcomes of these assessments and future pupil targets. End of year assessment results also form the basis of transition and handover discussions with next year's teacher.
- Data is reviewed by the Deputy Head for Curriculum and Assessment and the Inclusion Leader with ongoing dialogue with teachers and support staff. Pupil progress is also a standing agenda item at our termly Teaching and Learning Sub Committee Meetings of the Governing Body.
- At the end of the year, EYFS complete the EYFS Profile. The results are sent to Barnet Local Authority. End of EYFS data is reviewed and a GLD percentage calculated for each child.
- The National Phonics Screener is done in Year 1 so we can benchmark against national standards
- The above is in addition to the regular daily / weekly marking and observations that all teachers carry out routinely.
