Assessment at Glebe

National Assessment 

The national statements and objectives set out the expectations for each year group. These form the basis of what your child is expected to know and when.

Planning is based upon these expectations. Continual assessment will indicate whether your child is working within in the following categories:

  • towards their current year group statements and expectations
  • beginning their current year group expectations
  • within their current year group expectations
  •  secure with their current year group expectations

Depending upon the outcomes of assessment and the specific needs of individuals, children may be assessed against expectations for a year group below their current one. Planning is then adapted in accordance of the needs of an individual, group or cohort.

Upon entering our school in Reception:

Your child will be given a short baseline assessment which looks at all aspects of your child’s development. This is completed by the teacher to find your child’s individual starting point.

End of Year 1

During the summer term of Year 1, your child will have their knowledge of phonics assessed using the statutory phonic screening check.

The check consists of 40 words and non-words that your child will be asked to read one-on-one with a teacher.  Non-words (or alien/nonsense words) are a collection of letters that will follow phonics rules your child has been taught, but don’t mean anything. Your child will need to read these with the correct sounds to show that they understand the phonics rules behind them. Your child will be scored against a national standard, and the main result will be whether or not they fall below, within or above this standard. 

End of Key Stage 1 (Year 2)

Your child will be regularly assessed, throughout their school years, by their teachers to ensure they are making progress towards the end of each year group expectations. 

At the end of Year 2, your child will be assessed using externally set tests but will be marked internally by their class teacher. This will be carried out for maths, reading and writing. From this, your child will be given a scaled score. A scaled score of 100 or more would show that they had met the expected standard in the test. 

End of Year 4

Last year, Glebe took part in The Multiplication Tables Check trial to prepare for the full test taking place in June 2020.

All primary school-aged children are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by heart. In fact, they are expected to have mastered their times tables by the end of Year 4.

Schools will have a three-week window in the month of June to have their Year 4 children sit a 25 question times tables test, but will be free to choose which day within that three-week period they choose to sit it. All state schools in England, including maintained schools, special schools, academies and free schools will be required to enter their children for the Multiplication Tables Check.

The Multiplication Tables Check has been described as “an online, on-screen digital assessment” – meaning the children will take the test on a desktop computer, laptop or tablet (such as an iPad) at school.

End of Key Stage 2 (Year 6)

When your child reaches Year 6 they will sit National Tests at the end of the year in maths, reading, grammar, spelling and punctuation and science.

These will be externally set and externally marked. Again, your child will be given a scaled score, which parents will be able to compare with the average for the school, the local area and nationally. A scaled score of 100 or more would show that they had met the expected standard in the test.

*Please note that writing and science will be assessed through teacher assessment only.

How exactly do teachers assess children throughout their time at Glebe?

At Glebe, we use a range of ways appropriate to the year group or children to find out where they are in their learning.

Assessment is integral to daily teaching and learning; on a day to day basis, teachers observe and question individuals and groups of children to establish what they know and understand in relation to the learning objective. They continually collect ongoing information from children’s work and observing them carrying out tasks. Assessment information is used to clearly identify children’s strengths, improvements and progress against year group expectations. This information is then used to carefully plan next steps. Misconceptions or ‘gaps’ in learning can be identified as well as strengths in order to adapt planning and teaching to challenge or support the children’s learning.

Involving the children

Children are very much part of the assessment process.

They regularly discuss their strengths and next steps with their teachers; this helps them to form targets and understand how to move forward in their learning. 

How we inform you about your child’s assessments

We encourage parents and carers to be involved, as much as possible, in their child’s learning.

They are informed on how well their child is doing in relation to national expectations as well as the progress that they are making. Structured feedback is given to parents through parent consultations and end of year reports.
