Assessment, Recording and Reporting Why do we assess? Assessments enable teachers to teach more effectively; they help us to understand what students know and what they dont yet know. What is the reporting system? Four reports per year; paper copy to students, electronic copies to parents via Parentmail. Reports show academic progress and attitudes towards learning (Growth Mindset). If a reporting window falls near a Parents Evening, please come in to collect the report by hand. Bishop David Brown School Assessment, Recording and Reporting How do we assess? Summatively formal tests, testing a large domain of

knowledge, skills and understanding. These assessments are completed in formal conditions. These are graded and compared to your childs targets to show progress.

22/6/20 3/7/20 4/11/19 15/11/19 Bishop David Brown School Assessment, Recording and Reporting How do we assess? Formatively in class mini-tests, questions, quizzes and more extended pieces of writing and performance, typically every three weeks. These help teachers to understand student misconceptions and plan the best possible work for them. These are marked with comments and suggestions of how to improve, which students respond to.

Bishop David Brown School Assessment, Recording and Reporting How do you decide what target my child should have? We use the average KS2 scaled score of English reading and Maths to set a starting point. Each student is placed on one of eight pathways. This is reviewed annually.
