At Abbott we have developed our own assessment procedures, in line with the National Curriculum and expected national standards by the end of each Key stage.

How are children assessed?

We complete half termly Teacher Assessments in core and all other subjects, using our skills based planning and assessment documents. Children are assessed against the relevant 'band' objectives and specific Key Performance Indicators in English and Maths, and subject specific skills in all other subjects. Formal assessments are completed during the Autumn and Summer term to reinforce and contribute to teacher judgements.

How are children tracked?

At Abbott we have developed a rigorous 'points' system of assessment for Reading, Writing and Maths, which is progressive from Year 1 to Year 6. Children are expected to make 6 points progress during the academic year, regardless of their starting point. We hold regular Pupil Progress Tracking Meetings, where we discuss both progress and attainment of individuals and groups, and discuss those children who are 'On Track' to achieve expected national standard by the end of the year and those who are meeting the age related skills for all other subjects.

Marking and Feedback

Our Marking and Feedback policy ensures that children's work is 'assessed' regularly and that they are then given the opportunity to improve or correct their work, or challenge themselves further.
