How We Assess

Since the advent of the national curriculum, regular assessments have become a part of school life. Key Stage 1 SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) are conducted at the end of Year 2 and Key Stage 2 SATs at the end of Year 6. These provide valuable information about the progress of the children individually and collectively.

Children are also regularly assessed throughout their school career using a range of tests, questionnaires and observations. The test results indicate to us how well children are learning and assist us with target setting and future planning.

Informal assessment of the children is an ongoing, daily routine and an intrinsic part of teaching.


Reporting to Parents/Carers

At Holy Trinity C of E Primary School we have an “Open Door” policy with teaching staff available at the end of the school day.  If however, you wish to speak to a member of staff or the Head of School at a different time please contact the school office to make a mutually convenient time.

We are committed to fulfilling our statutory obligation in reporting to parents as we believe it is vitally important in developing positive relationships with parents. 

We hold parent consultations in the Autumn (Term 2) and Spring (Term 4) terms to discuss childrens progress and to set future aspirational targets.

Written progress reports are completed in the Summer (Term 6) term, on which you and your child can comment on if you wish.
