Attainment and Performance

Attainment and Performance

At Warden Hill Infant School we are continually assessing our pupils. We use a mixture of informal observations and assessment for learning opportunities in lessons. We also make more formal assessments with the use of tests to support our teacher assessments.

We keep a detailed track of our pupils’ progress and attainment using Classroom Monitor based on book scrutiny of every pupil’s English and Maths book approximately every 10 weeks.

All of our pupils in Year One and Two have termly assessment weeks and the results of these assessments are shared with parents at termly parent consultations. Any test papers and assessments are also used by teachers to identify gaps in knowledge and inform future planning. The test papers and assessments are also used by support staff to help identify weak areas for some children and to help focus interventions so that the children can keep up with their peers.

There are also national assessments that have to be made at key times during their time at Warden Hill Infant School.

Early Years Foundation Stage Profile

During the Reception year, children are continually assessed and at the end of Reception a judgement is made as to whether they have achieved a good level of development.

Across the areas of Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics,  Understanding the World and  Expressive Arts and Design, children are awarded levels as to whether or not they have met, exceeded or are emerging at this point.

Please see below for our EYFS results for 2019.

The Year One Phonics Check

The Phonics Screening Check happens towards the end of Year 1. A teacher administers it individually to each child. It is to show how well a child can use the phonics skills they have learned up to the end of Year 1, and to identify students who need extra phonics help.

The checks consist of 40 words and non-words that a child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher. Non-words (or nonsense words, or pseudo words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but do not mean anything. A child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them.

The 40 words and non-words are divided into two sections – one with simple word structures of three or four letters, and one with more complex word structures of five or six letters. Each of the non-words is presented with a picture of a monster / alien, as if the word was their name.

Key Stage 1 National Assessment

Year 2 children (Key Stage One) have to be assessed in English, maths and science and teachers have to make an assessment of their national curriculum levels. The local authority moderates these assessments.

Key Stage 1 Results 2019

 

In summary, our Key Stage 1 results were:

 

Reading:  67% working at the Expected standard   National was 75%

12% were working at Greater Depth.   National was  25%

Children in Year 2 are assessed during May with National Assessments in English and Maths to establish what they have learnt during Year 1 and 2. Teachers also assess Science from evidence across the Key Stage. The results of these assessments are reported annually to parents.  Children are. Children will be deemed to be:

·         Not working towards the expected standard,

·         Working towards the expected standard

·         Working at the expected standard

·         Working at greater depth within the expected standard

The tests in Reading and Maths are marked using a scaled score with 100 being expected.

Internal Data

At the end of each term we constantly update our assessments for each pupil and look at how individuals, year groups and specific groups of pupils are achieving in terms of progress and achievement. We report attainment levels to parents at each parent consultation and in the annual school report.

At Warden Hill Infant School we are constantly looking at our data to inform our plans and future priorities for the school as a whole, for classes, year groups, certain groups and individuals.

We are determined to raise standards of achievement, while remaining a wholly inclusive school where all children are highly valued.

Our aim is to help all of our children to fly high and reach their potential, not just academically but also in the arts, in music, in sport and in any other field they choose.

At Warden Hill Infant School we aim to produce lifelong learners, good citizens and children who are independent, reflective, creative and team workers. Our Warden Hill children cope extremely well with the transition to junior school.
