Assessment at Ryarsh

Effective assessment provides information to improve teaching and learning. We give our children regular feedback on their learning so that they understand what to do in order to improve. This allows us to base our lesson plans on a detailed knowledge of each pupil. We give parents regular reports on their child’s progress so that teachers, children and parents are all working together to raise standards for all our children.

We use different types of assessment throughout the school. Formative assessment is the ongoing assessment carried out by teachers during lessons and units of lessons. It helps teachers to re-shape and improve the learning process by providing a personalised and relevant approach for all children. Summative assessments provide information to help moderate judgements made and assist in helping to improve whole school as well as in-class provision. Summative assessment often occurs at pre-defined periods of the academic year such as during SATs tests.

For more information about how we use assessment, please read our school assessment policy on the policy section of the website.
