The principle of assessment is to check and identify what a child understands and what they need to learn next. This is done on a daily and lesson by lesson basis.

 * Progress in English and maths is checked on a half termly basis.

 *Targets are set for the end of each year.

 *Some pupils will undertake tests and exams during the academic year.

 *Every pupil will receive a written report during the year concerning their progress.

  *Parents have three parents’ meetings per year that they can attend to check on their child’s progress.

 *The school uses its own assessment system it has created, John Chilton School Stages.

How we Assess Progress at John Chilton School

Pupils’ achievement is monitored through bespoke I Can statements within each subject. Progress against each statement is demonstrated through lateral levels to demonstrate depth of learning:

Encountered

Participated

Involved

Developed

Achieved

Mastered

It is recognised that progress will be individual and the expectation of how much progress each pupil will make will be considered against the individual’s: cognitive ability, syndrome, physical and sensory difficulty. Progress for one pupil may be evidenced by Mastered in a higher Stage in the school system; for another it may be recorded as being Involved in more concepts at a lower Stage. Both are regarded as equal in excellence.

What the Government says:

The Government has announced that schools need to create their own assessment systems involving the following principles:

Give reliable information to parents about how their child, and their child’s school, is performing.

Help drive improvement for pupils and teachers.

Make sure the school is keeping up with external best practice and innovation
