Our assessment and reporting system includes:
All of the above will feed into termly data 'snap-shots'.
At River View, we will be using Golden Codes to track pupils' progress over time against age related expectations. The Golden Codes reflect where the child is in terms of coverage of the curriculum:
Therefore, it would be expected that a child in Year 3 would be a Y3Emerging at the end of the Autumn Term. They would then be expected to progress to Developing (end of Spring Term) and Expected (end of Summer Term) however, this is typical of the expected progress of a child and not all children will progress at this rate.
The Golden codes and tracking system are the backbone to tracking progress across our school and these are recorded on SPTO (School Pupil Tracker Online).
We also assess the way children apply their learning. This is known as a Mastery Rating. Mastery ratings show that age related objectives have been achieved and children are working at a deeper level of understanding and application.
Rather than moving on to the next year's curriculum, these children will work on 'mastering' their knowledge through the application of skills in different contexts - they will be deepening their learning.
The depth and application of a child's learning is an important marker of their achievement and progress.
