Assessing Attainment and Progress

It is important that we check and monitor our pupils’ progress so we all know how well they are doing and what they need to do next. Pupils’ progress and attainment is assessed through a combination of teacher assessment and tests.

Statutory Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) for Reading and Maths are given at the end of Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6). Year 6 pupils also take a statutory Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling test. Year 1 pupils undergo the Phonics Screening Check in June.

Pupils in other year groups take non-statutory tests for reading and maths, although they are also assessed by their teachers based on their ongoing work in class. Writing is assessed through set written tasks and pupils’ on-going written work matched against levelled criteria.

At The King's Academy, we teach and assess pupils using stages and steps that exemplify what children of a particular age should be able to demonstrate.

It is important to us as a school, that we not only assess what children can do, but how well they can do it - we commonly refer to this as ‘depth’. For more information about our curriculum, coverage, assessment or tracking, please speak to a member of the teaching staff who will be more than happy to help.
