›When the government introduced the New National Curriculum in 2014, they stopped using levels as the national assessment tool.  ›As a school we stopped using levels at the end of the last academic year (July 2015).

›The National Curriculum now, is known as a mastery curriculum, which means there a number of skills that you are expected to demonstrate by the end of Year 6. ›The new expectations are fewer but more challenging.›Also they are a secure fit system. This means that you must demonstrate every skill consistently or you do not achieve the standard.

A handy guide to Assessment at Iver Heath Junior School

  • Every child will undertake a half-termly Learning Review week. During this week they will complete an age appropriate set of questions in Reading, Maths, SPaG and Science. Their writing will be assessed throughout the half term.
  • These Learning Reviews will be completed independently but are not formal exams.
  • Any child will be allowed to reattempt question(s) at a later time if they have made careless errors. We want to see what children have learned not whether they can perfectly recall everything immediately. One key skill we are trying to teach them is checking for errors and seeing where they went wrong then reattempting something correctly.
  • These scores will then place each child in to an attainment and progress band as follows:

Attainment:

Score range Attainment Band
17-20 (on first attempt) Mastery
17-20 Greater Depth
11-16 Age Related Expectation
8-10 Below Age related Expectation
0-7 Significantly Below Age Related Expectation

 

Progress:

Half-Termly Progress

Score comparison Progress Band
+2 or more compared to previous score More than expected progress
+/- 1 compared to previous score Expected progress
-2 or more compared to previous score Less than expected progress

 

End of Year Progress

Score comparison Progress Band
+2 or more in Summer 2 compared to Autumn 1 More than expected progress
+/- 1 in Summer 2 compared to Autumn 1 Expected progress
-2 or more in Summer 2 compared to Autumn 1 Less than expected progress

After every learning review your child will be informed of all of the information relating to their attainment and progress. Also the information will be sent home to you to keep you up to date on your child’s learning.

You will be reminded of this by a sticker being put in their homework diary and a text message from the school. You will sign the sticker to confirm you have received and read the information.

›What will help you (the student) succeed?
