We are continually reviewing and reflecting on the progress of our children. This enables us to make provision for those children who are not making the progress we would expect whilst at the same time extending the learning for the children who are making more progress than we would expect. Assessment takes place as part of ongoing class routines and children are unaware that they are being assessed.
Standards are reported to parents as part of our commitment to working in partnership with parents and helping the children move forward in their learning.
