  • The Vice Principal is the co-ordinator for both Monitoring and Assessment. She monitors the medium term planning, the co-ordinator sheets and provides a written report to the Principal of her findings. She discusses this with the Principal at a senior management staff meeting once per week .
  • She also conducts a termly whole staff meeting where the children’s standardised tests and general progress is discussed. The Special Needs register is then updated in light of the findings.
  • Each pupil’s results are collated onto a pupil profile sheet and also onto a class screening monitoring page. This allows the teachers to examine the child’s overall performance as well as his/her performance against his/her class. The standardised tests are carried out in May. The results are reported in the June report to the parents. Additionally, the CBA's are carried out in the autumn term and then reported to the parents at the annual parent/teacher meeting in November.
  • The Key Stage Assessment is carried out in the spring term. The staff examine both the results of these tests along with the results of the standardised assessment to set targets for the school for the forth coming year.
