We ensure there is a rigorous focus on literacy and numeracy so that all children exceed National expectations.  We ensure there is a rigorous focus on regular meaningful assessments in all subject areas so students and parents are consistently aware of student progress and how to move forward. We assess every half/full term, dependant on the Key Stage and subject area; this includes summative assessments and also teacher assessment that is based on the students attainment and progress to date. Parental reporting takes place at the end of the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.
