At Christ the Sower we assess progress of children using both formative and summative assessment.
Teachers and adults in the school use formative assessment to assess children's work daily as they mark and feedback to children, adapting plans and lessons to meet the children's needs.
At three points in the year - October, February and May we have a formal assessment week when we make summative assessments of each child's progress and attainment in Reading, Writing and Maths.
We use Target Tracker to record and track progress and attainment and to help us identify next steps in learning.
Foundation Subjects (Art, Music, Humanities, Design Technology, Computing, Modern Foreign Languages, Physical Education and Religious Education) are assessed in a less formal manner, to enable children's annual progress to be accurately measured and reported to parents.
