  • At the end of Year R, the children are assessed against the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework.

  • Multiplication tables check – carried out in Y4

Our teachers use on-going assessment to help identify pupil needs, plan next steps and track progress. From Y1 – Y6, we use the Hampshire Assessment Model to assess children in reading, writing and maths. Internal data is collected at 3 milestones during the year, and individual pupil assessments are shared with parents at least twice during the year.
