Reading Assessment

Assessment is used to monitor progress and to identify any child needing additional support as soon as they need it.

Assessment for learning is used:

  • daily within class to identify children needing Keep-up support
  • weekly in the Review lesson to assess gaps, address these immediately and secure fluency of GPCs, words and spellings.

Summative assessment is used:

  • every six weeks to assess progress, to identify gaps in learning that need to be addressed, to identify any children needing additional support and to plan the Keep-up support that they need.
  • by the senior leadership team and scrutinised through the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised assessment tracker, to narrow attainment gaps between different groups of children and so that any additional support for teachers can be put into place
  • Reading Assessment Tests  are used in Key Stage 2 once a term to assess the children’s reading progress and identify areas for development
  • SAT’s are carried out at the end of each Key Stage 2

Children in Year 1 sit the Phonics Screening Check during the summer term. Any child not passing the check re-sits it in Year 2.

Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SAT’s are carried out at the end of Year 2 and Year 6.
