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.
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.
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.
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
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

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

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.
