Longtown Primary School assesses the academic progress of children in school.

The information that we collect on progress is used to plan the next steps in the children’s learning, to assess the effectiveness of the curriculum and the way that it is taught, to report to parents and carers on the progress of their children and to report to the relevant authorities so that they can monitor the effectiveness of the school.

The most significant assessments that we report to the authorities are listed below, and these are the main data sets used by Ofsted when they inspect schools (see Ofsted link on the home menu to see our latest report).

End of Reception Year – Foundation Stage Profile
End of Year 1 – Phonics Progress Check
End of Year 2 – End of Key Stage One assessments
End of Year 6 – End of Key Stage Two assessments

 

Information on the outcomes for children in some of these key assessments can be found in our Ofsted report and on the Department for Education website:

2017 Progress & Achievement Data

 

Good Level of Development (EYFS)

Children are defined as having reached a good level of development at the end of the EYFS if they have achieved at least the expected level in:

  • The early learning goals in the prime areas of learning (personal, social and emotional development; physical development; and communication and language) and
  • The early learning goals in the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

Phonics (Year 1)

The phonics screening check is a short assessment to confirm whether individual children have learnt phonic decoding to an appropriate standard. It will identify the children who need extra help so they are given support by their school to improve their reading skills.
