Monitoring

Monitoring Pupil Progress/Reporting Progress to Parents

During the school year, there are a number of

opportunities for parents and teachers to meet

both formally and informally.

Curriculum Meetings

In September there are year group meetings

when you child’s teacher outlines the curriculum

programme for the year. Expectations regarding

homework, along with other relevant information will

also be communicated at this time.

Teacher/Parent Consultations

In November and February you will have the

opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher

to discuss progress and to address issues or concerns

which you may have.

A comprehensive written report on your child’s

progress is completed by the class teacher at the

end of June.

Assessment

Continuous assessment, record keeping and reporting

are an integral part of our planning and teaching.

We encourage pupil involvement in their own

learning and achievement through the use of

Assessment for Learning throughout the school.

Pupils are involved in the planning stage of topics

and participate in active target setting and self

evaluation as a means of improving on their own

achievement.

At the beginning of Primary 1 the teacher complete a

baseline assessment of each child. From P.3-7 we use

NFER Assessment for Maths and English at the end of

the school year.

InCAS computerised assessments are

completed by P.4-7 in October each year and results

shared with parents. Pupils also participate in end of Key Stage 1 (P.4)

and Key Stage 2 (P.7) assessments. Levels achieved

are included in the Annual Governors' Report to parents.

The data from all assessments is used to inform

planning and teaching at individual class and school

level, to evaluate and improve teaching and learning.

Pupils from P.4-7 also participate in ICT tasks which

are accredited by CCEA.

We encourage pupil involvement in their own learning and achievement

through the use of Assessment for Learning throughout the school.

Pupil's are involved in the planning stage of topics and participate in

active target setting and self evaluation as a means of improving on

their own achievement.

 

Pupil Records and Reporting

Should a child transfer to another school during

the school year, his/her records will be released to

parents to pass on to the receiving school.

Providing the child has completed at least one term

of the school year, a transfer report will also be

completed, with a copy for the receiving school and

one for parents.
