At Stamfordham Primary we are continually assessing our pupils. We use a mixture of informal observations and assessment for learning opportunities in lessons. We keep a detailed track of our pupils’ progress and attainment using a Pupil Tracker and based on book scrutiny of every pupil’s English and Maths book approximately every 10 weeks.

 

There are also national assessments that have to be made at key times during the primary school phase.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile

During the Reception year, children are continually assessed and at the end of Reception a judgement is made as to whether they have achieved a good level of development.

Across the areas of Communication & Language, Physical Development, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics,  Understanding the World and  Expressive Arts and Design, children are awarded levels as to whether or not they have met, exceeded or are emerging at this point.

 

The Year One Phonics Check

The Phonics Screening Check happens towards the end of Y1. It is administered individually to each child by the class teacher. The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that a child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything – a child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them. The 40 words and non-words are divided into two sections – one with simple word structures of three or four letters, and one with more complex word structures of five or six letters. Each of the non-words is presented with a picture of a monster / alien, as if the word were their name.

 

Year 2

Children in Year 2 are assessed during May with National Assessments in English and Maths to establish what they have learnt during Year 1 and 2. The results of these assessments are reported annually to parents.  Children are assessed in Reading, Maths, Writing, Spelling and Grammar tests. Children will be deemed to be:

  • Not working towards the expected standard,
  • Working towards the expected standard
  • Working at the expected standard
  • Working at greater depth within the expected standard

The tests are marked using a scaled score with 100 being expected.

 

Year 6

Year 6 children (Key Stage two) have to take national  tests in English and mathematics. The tests are sent to external markers and the school receives a scaled score for each child.

Children in Year 6 are assessed during May with National Assessments in English and Maths to establish what they have learnt during Years 3, 4,5 and 6. The results of these assessments are reported annually to parents. Children are assessed in Reading, Maths, Writing, Spelling and Grammar tests. Science is teacher assessed.
For Reading, Maths and Science children will be deemed to be:

  • Working at the expected standard
  • Not meeting National Standards

For Writing children will be deemed to be:

  • Not working towards the expected standard,
  • Working towards the expected standard
  • Working at the expected standard
  • Working at greater depth within the expected standard

The tests are marked using a scaled score with 100 being expected.

 

We are determined to raise standards of achievement, while remaining a wholly inclusive school where all children are highly valued. Our aim is to help all of our children to fly high and reach their potential, not just academically but also in the arts, in music, in sport and in any other field they choose.  At Stamfordham Primary we aim to produce lifelong learners, good citizens and children who are independent, reflective, creative and team workers.
