2016 Standards and Assessment
All children are assessed by their class teacher throughout the year in order to challenge and support learning. These may be informal, on-going assessments, or more formal tests. All children in school have targets set for their academic achievement and are very much involved in assessing their own progress.
Parents are invited to attend parents’ evening in the Autumn and Spring terms and written reports are sent home towards the end of the summer term. All parents and teachers communicate using the reading record and parents are welcome into school to discuss their child’s progress at any time. Parents can also request to see documentation relating to their child. All parents should be assured that if we have any concerns at all relating to a child’s progress – or welfare – they will be contacted.
Mrs Wood tracks the progress of all children carefully, throughout their time in school, to maximise potential.
Children are assessed by their teacher at the ages of 7 and 11, against national criteria. Parents will be informed of the results.
Since 2006, Hambleton has been one of the top performing schools in the country and we continue to strive to maximise both pupil and teacher performance. Our 2015 results placed both the progress and attainment of our children within the top 5% nationally, as has been the case for the last few years and we expect to be the same for 2016.
