Ashford Park Primary School endeavours to ensure that all children make better than expected progress from their individual starting points. Formative and summative assessment are essential vehicles for supporting teachers to identify the knowledge and skills learnt and retained by children and to identify gaps and next steps in learning.

Assessments will include but are not limited to:

  • Teacher / Learning Support Assistant feedback (please see Feedback Policy)
  • Observations and interactions during whole class, group and 1:1 pupil conferencing
  • Effective questioning
  • Informal checks e.g. spelling, multiplication tables
  • Formal summative assessments (including standardised and statutory tests)

This Assessment Policy and Feedback Policy set out procedures and protocols to enable this assessment to happen effectively.
