Assessment at Minworth
At Minworth, we endeavour to ensure that every child meets their full potential in all aspects of their school life. To ensure this happens, we employ effective formative assessment strategies, part of which involves routinely assessing children on a daily basis in all aspects of their work and giving them the feedback they need to improve through both verbal and written means. In addition, children are also summatively assessed at key points during the academic year to give teachers an overview of the progress they are making and where they stand in comparison to age-related expectations of children nationally.
The links below give a detailed account of the age-related criteria we assess children against in order to make these comparisons and measure the progress they make.
In addition to our own on-going assessment, children in the following year groups are also subject to national testing.
Year 1 - National phonics screen
Year 2 - End of Key stage 1 tests in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling. (These are externally set by the standards and testing agency but are marked but school staff.)
Year 6 - End of Key stage 2 tests in reading, maths and grammar, punctuation and spelling. (These are externally set by the standards and testing agency and externally marked.)
