The purpose of assessment is to move pupils on in their learning. It is important that the teacher knows what has been retained, what skills have been acquired and what concepts have been understood. This enables teachers to reflect on what pupils can do and informs their future planning. The outcomes of assessments will help pupils become involved in raising their own expectations, celebrating their achievements and increasing their self-motivation. Assessments also provide information for others, including:

  • Parents– to show progress and areas for development and involve them in the learning process
  • Other teachers – to help them plan and gain informed views
  • Outside agencies – to provide evidence of attainment

At Appleton Wiske Community Primary School, our approach to assessment ensures that our pupils make good progress in order to give them the best possible opportunities throughout their education and in later life.
