Assessment & understanding 'grades' given
When talking to your child we will be talking to them about their next steps or targets so they know how to improve. These targets will also be shared with you at Parents' Evenings, although you are always welcome to come in and ask your child's teacher what your child's current targets are. This is particularly important if you are using a tutor to give your child additional support. You could also direct any tutors to the school website so that they can see relevant policies on how we teach children, and use similar methods so that your child does not get confused. If in doubt, please come in and talk to us.
We will use the following terms to report to you: Beginning (B), Working Within (W), Secure (S)
Each year group has it's own programmes of study, so the above terms will be linked to the year group your child is working on.
- is beginning the Year 1 curriculum = Y1B (Year 1 Beginning)
- has learned some of the Year 1 curriculum = Y1W (Year 1 Working Within)
- has nearly learned all of the Year 1 curriculum = Y1S (Year 1 Secure)
This pattern is repeated for all year groups, giving a scale of:
Y1B - Y1W - Y1S Y2B - Y2W - Y2S Y3B - Y3W - Y3S Y4B - Y4W - Y4S Y5B - Y5W - Y5S Y6B - Y6W - Y6S
This grading system can be explained to you, please ask during parents
