The academic progress of each child is monitored from EYFS through to Year 6 and data is collected regularly to monitor progress, establish priorities for teaching, and to set targets for pupils. Teachers mark work carefully to ensure children know what they have done well and what they can do to improve further to help every child to make good progress. After each lesson, teachers review their planning in the light of the progress children have made. In reading, writing and maths, teachers assess each child in relation to the key learning objectives from the National curriculum.
We welcome communication with parents about all aspects of your child’s progress.
“Most pupils attain standards that are above those expected for their age in reading, writing, mathematics and science.”
There are parent consultation meetings in the autumn and spring terms when class teachers meet the parents or carers of every child, where progress through the national curriculum is discussed. An annual report is provided in the summer term. Parents may contact the school at any time to discuss any of their child’s progress reports.
The academic progress of each child is monitored from EYFS through to Year 6 and data is collected regularly to monitor progress, establish priorities for teaching, and to set targets for pupils.
You will be told whether your child is developing understanding of these objectives, using them consistently, or exceeding them, in relation to the nationally expected levels for his or her age group. You will also be given feedback about your child’s behaviour and attitude to learning. A comprehensive report is produced by teachers at the end of the academic year, covering all areas of the curriculum as well as personal development. At Juniper Hill many of our children progress further than the national expectation, something you would see reflected in your child’s report. Should your child not make progress as expected this will have been discussed with you, together with the support your child is being given.
There are a number of statutory assessments your child will undertake during their time at the school. These include: an EYFS profile during their Reception year, a phonics test in Year 1, and SATS for Key Stage 1 (Year 2) and Key Stage 2 (Year 6). The most recent SATS results can be found in an appendix to this prospectus.
