Measuring Progress

How will we measure the progress of your child in school?

  • Your child’s progress is continually monitored by his/her class teacher.
  • His/her progress is reviewed formally every half-term against the National Curriculum objectives and agreed milestones in reading, writing, numeracy and science.
  • If your child is in Year 1 and above, but is not yet accessing the National Curriculum, a more sensitive assessment tool is used which shows their level in more detail and will also show smaller but significant steps of progress. The levels are called ‘P levels’. (The Lancashire PIVATs system is used to support the process.)
  • At the end of each key stage (i.e. at the end of year 2 and year 6) all children are required to be formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATs). This is something the government requires all schools to do and the results are published nationally.
  • Children on the SEN register will have an IEP which will be reviewed with your involvement, every half-term and the plan for the next half-term made.
  • The progress of children with a statement of SEND/ EHC Plan is formally reviewed at an Annual Review with all adults/agencies involved with the child’s education.
  • The SENCo will also check that your child is making good progress within any individual work and in any group that they take part in.
