At Bousfield, we make sure our teachers keep up to date with the latest developments in teaching and learning. Central to this is having a whole-school ‘growth mindset’ learning culture
Regular assessments are made of each child's progress and these are used by teachers to plan the next steps in learning. Formal termly assessments are also conducted in English, Maths and Science, and the next steps in learning are shared with parents at termly parent/teacher conferences. In addition, parents receive a written Annual Report in the summer term which summarises their child's overall progress and attainment.
Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs) in English, Maths and Science are completed at the end of each Key Stage and these results are reported to parents.
These Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) are made up of a combination of testing and teacher assessment judgements and are used in all government-funded primary schools in England to assess the attainment of pupils against the programmes of study of the National Curriculum at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2 when most pupils are aged 7 and 11 respectively.
