Assessment is used to monitor progress and to identify any child needing additional support as soon as they need it.
Assessment for learning is used:
- daily within class to identify children needing Keep-up support
- weekly in the Review lesson to assess gaps, address these immediately and secure fluency of GPCs, words and spellings.
Each half term we assess progress and match to the correct level of reading books.
The Rapid Catch-Up assessment is used with any child new to the school in Year 2 and above to quickly identify any gaps in their phonic knowledge and plan and provide appropriate extra teaching.
Children in Year 1 sit the Phonics Screening Check. Any child not passing the check re-sits it in Year 2.
