Assessment is a continuous process which takes place in every area of school life. Through it we are able to build a complete picture of a child's rate of development, not only intellectually, but emotionally, socially and physically.
Assessment is an important part of the teaching and learning process at our school. By assessing what the child knows, understands and can do, the teacher is able to plan future programmes of work for individuals and also to report individual achievements to parents and other teachers.
The methods of assessment used by the teaching staff involve talking with the child, observing the child doing something and looking at the work produced by the child. In all of these we aim to match the skill or content of the task to the level of attainment of the child.
At Hartford Junior School pupils take written tests in maths, reading and writing three times a year. This enables us to track their progress and keep parents/carers informed about academic performance.
In Year 6 the children take a national attainment tests, SAT tests. These are published by schools nationally.
