Assessment

Assessment is fundamental to be able to extend and challenge children’s learning so that they achieve their best

Through our assessment processes we continually evaluate children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, establishing what children can do and what their next learning steps should be. Assessment is the heart of the learning process and provides the valuable evidence to guide and improve teaching and learning Alongside this, it offers the opportunity for children to demonstrate and review their own progress. It is an integral part of our relentlessly ambitious, high expectations culture.

Target Tracker

We use Target Tracker to track the progress & attainment for children at St John’s. Teachers use this continuously and report results to the Headteacher & Governors.

The National Curriculum has been written to for pupils to meet Age Related Expectations (ARE) for the end of each year. As children travel from Year 1 to Year 6 in our school, they are tracked against the Age Related Expectations. Target Tracker provides data on pupils attainment and progress using numbered bands and steps to track children.
