Assessment/Reporting

Assessment and Reporting Arrangements

At Holy Cross Federation, we value the importance of regular assessment and how this can impact on children’s learning.  In order for children to make expected or better progress effective communication between teachers, parents and pupils is extremely important, therefore we have revised the way in which attainment and progress are reported to parents.

Firstly, pupil targets are set by the teacher, the previous term’s targets are reviews and the coming term’s set. These will then be sent home to parents. 

At this point meetings are also held between the Head and the teacher to ensure that progress is discussed and where expected progress has not been met, specific strategies for supporting those pupils are put in place. 

During the Autumn and Summer terms – face to face meetings are held between the teacher and parents, this year, we would like to see more of the pupils involved within these meetings, they are then developing more awareness of where they are at with their learning and where they need to work towards. 

During the Spring term, a mid-year, short written progress report will be sent home to update on your child’s progress. 

In EYFS, weekly information sheets are sent home to inform you of the children’s learning and asking for your feedback/ input into your child’s learning.  Targets are then set within the teacher’s planning.  Learning journeys will be shared at different times throughout the year. 

This process is designed to ensure that teacher, parents and pupils work together in partnership and to ensure that all are aware of where the child is and what they are working towards achieving.
