There is no formal assessment for the pupils in either Year 3 or Year 4. There will however be ongoing teacher assessments throughout the year. The teachers use these assessments to provide the children with purposeful learning opportunities, inform planning and move the children on with their learning.
Our Assessment System has at its heart Assessment for Learning; this is when teachers assess children’s learning in the classroom and provide feedback and next steps for the child. This type of assessment is happening all day every day in our classrooms. To record, monitor and inform pupil progress for children in Years 3 and 4, we use a piece of software called Classroom Monitor. To track pupil’s attainment, Classroom Monitor uses a system of steps. This is based on a carefully considered logical approach to assessment and follows on from the assessment system we have introduced in EYFS.
