ASSESSMENT

Blueberry Park Primary School has rigorous assessment procedures to monitor both individual pupil progress and whole school outcomes. These include ongoing assessment procedures at classroom level, half termly, formal assessments, SATS at Key Stages 1 and 2, Optional SATS at Years 3, 4 & 5, Phonics at Year 1, and Baseline assessments at Nursery and Reception stage.

These assessments are used to inform teaching, set individual and whole school targets, and are shared with parents on parents evenings. Formal SATS results are shared with Year 2 & 6 parents at the end of the school year and overall outcomes are published for all parents.

 

Due to the changes to the end of Key Stage 1 and 2 statutory assessment arrangements for 2016, we have written letters to parents to try to explain what will happen this summer. Please click on the links below:-

HOW WILL SCHOOL REPORT TO PARENTS THIS YEAR?

We have created a pamphlet for parents about Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 'scaled scores' that will be used to report the results of assessments from 2016.

The pamphlet answers questions, such as:

  • What is a scaled score?
  • How do scaled scores compare to levels?
  • How will results be reported?

It also includes a series of frequently asked questions (FAQs) that you may find useful.
