Assessment & Reporting - Infant School

We want you to have regular contact with your child’s form teacher and have an open door policy in the Infant School.
We are keen to talk to you about the progress children are making, working in partnership every step of the way.
There are two formal Parents' Evenings a year - one in October/November (Autumn Term 1) and one in February/March (Spring Term 1/2) - where your child’s general progress will be discussed. We also encourage parents to arrange a meeting with their child’s form teacher at any time if there is a matter they wish to discuss. Likewise, we would always make you aware of any matters we would like to bring your attention to.
Parents also receive written reports on their child’s progress twice a year: one in December where progress to date is outlined, alongside next step targets and a more detailed report at the end of the academic year, which celebrates the year's achievements and the important milestones in the pupil's life.
Teachers monitor children’s performance through formative and summative data analysis and classwork. National standardised tests are carried out each term and are used in conjunction with data gathered to inform planning and target setting for each child ensuring optimum progress.
Parent involvement is integral to success. The involvement of parents in a three-way partnership with school will ensure maximum support is given and positive outcomes. This is very important for each child's development and a fundamental part of our school ethos. We want to work with you as parents to ensure your child flourishes!
