At Abbot's Hall, children are assessed against age related expectations for the year group in which they are working using a 'steps' system. However, some children may be working above or below this standard and we are careful to ensure we make valuable and careful assessment against each child's individual starting points to ensure they continue to make progress in all of their learning.
