How are children assessed at Abbot's Hall?

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. 


Alongside Statutory Assessment tests (SATs) in Year 2 and Year 6, there are many other ways we may assess children's progress and attainment to ensure they build on their learning throughout their time with us. Some of these assessment methods are listed below.  


The following methods of assessment are used in our school:

Termly teacher assessment

Termly assessment papers for reading and maths

Sharing of pupil progress with the Key Stage team and headteacher

Classroom based assessment and monitoring

Data analysis

Following up parental concerns

Tracking individual children's progress over time

Information from previous schools and settings

Information from other services 

Under-taking, when necessary, a more in-depth individual assessment

Involving an external agency when necessary

Phonics Screening Assessment in Year One

Use of a 'POP' (Personalised Opportunity Plan) to track progress against specific targets
