At Yealmpton we believe that every child can achieve and that assessment is an integral part of high quality teaching and learning.
Assessment helps us to ensure that our teaching is appropriate and that learners are making expected progress and achieve their full potential. We give learners regular feedback on their learning so that they understand what it is that they do well and what they need to do to improve. Measurement of a learners’ ability to achieve is made through, ongoing formative observations and questioning against the National Curriculum.
Formal assessments are completed at different points within the school year to identify learners’ strengths and areas for improvement. Teachers use the outcomes of assessments and pre-task checks to support the design and re-shaping of planning and provision.
