KS2 - Year 6   


Assessment 2018

The way we assess children has not changed, we still talk to children, observe their learning and use summative testing to see how and what children have learned.  However, levels are no longer what children are assessed against.  We now assess children against Age Related Expectations (AREs) in each subject. These show what children should have learnt and understood by the end of each year.  Children will learn at different rates and whilst we will teach specific skills we differentiate this according to your child's needs.  

Attached are the Assessment Without Levels grids, which show what we assess against in English, Maths and Science.
