The strength of any school lies in the ability to assess and react to all events. Nowhere is this more true than in the assessment of children's reading, writing and mathematics.


Whilst we could write for hours about how we assess children in school, we have produced a video for parents to give you all of the key information in two minutes. We hope this will helpful and further develops the partnership you have with school.

Assessment in Two Minutes

When looking at these for your child's year group, bear in mind that we expect a slightly higher standard from children compared to nationally. We see this as an aspirational target, specifically designed to set children up for success in their Year Two and Year Six SATs at the end of Key Stage One and Two.
