Assessment

Nursery learning journeys

Every child’s progress is closely monitored at Willow Wood in order that we can provide the best possible opportunities and highest levels of support. When your child starts nursery, staff will informally monitor his/her development and keep detailed records. This information is shared with families and either transferred to the reception class or to the child’s new school.

Foundation stage profile

Children continue to be assessed in the reception class where staff will add information to an assessment profile for each individual. Insights will be shared at parent consultation meetings. Your child will have a learning journey book of photos and comments which will be available during the year for you to add to.

Year One phonic check

All children in Year 1 will participate in a phonics check.  This assessment will be administered the year 1 teachers.  Results are included within the Year 1 end of term report.

SATS

Children in Year 2 and Year 6 are assessed during May. The results of these assessments are reported annually to the parents by the governing body.

Marking and assessment

We aim to provide feedback to children through marking so that they have specific advice about improvements to their work. Children are given time to read and review their work following marking.

Parent consultations

Parents are very welcome in school and we aim to involve them with their children’s education as much as possible. Parent consultation evenings take place in the Autumn and Spring terms. In addition to this if you wish to meet with the class teacher please arrange an appointment after school. The Headteacher and Deputy Headteachers are always happy to listen to concerns or to offer support. Please call at the office or telephone for an appointment.

Reports to parents

At the end of each year your child will bring home a full report detailing progress and achievements across the curriculum. The report will be based on self assessment by your child and summative observations by the teaching team. Parents / Carers are encouraged to provide feedback to the school.
