Assessment Statement
At Whitkirk Primary School pupils will be part of assessment in-class, in the form of peer and self assessments as well as teacher assessments against key assessment criteria which reflect the National Curriculum end of year expectations. Our assessment system is a blend of teacher assessment and standardised, age-appropriate testing (including SATS for Y2/6 and NFER tests in Y1/3/4/5) at key points throughout the school year. Progress against the end of of year expectations will be closely tracked across every year group and the information will be used to inform provision whilst monitoring the progress of individuals and groups of pupils. Moderation in-school and across Trust schools is a key element in quality-assuring assessment judgements.
