Kingsgate Primary School

Assessment


The Department for Education has changed the way that schools assess the attainment and progress of pupils. Schools no longer use levels to describe pupils' attainment. There is no longer a national system and currently individual schools are trialling different ways of assessing the progress of their pupils.

Assessing pupils' attainment
At Kingsgate Primary School we are using the terms beginning, developing, secure to define where pupils are within each level of development in each year.
For example, if a Year 4 pupil by the end of the year is working in line with what is expected for their age we call this 4 Secure.
If a Year 4 pupil by the end of the year is not yet working in line with what is expected for their age we call this 4 Beginning or 4 Developing.
If a pupil by the end of the year is working above what is expected for their age we call this 4 Exceeding.

Assessing pupils' progress
At Kingsgate Primary School we expect the vast majority of pupils to move from Beginning to Secure over the course of the year. We expect that some pupils will exceed our expectations,  and achieve Exceeding at the end of the year.
We will continue to provide high quality teaching for all our pupils with additional support for those who have a lower starting point and who need to catch up.
We will continue to carry out regular progress checks to ensure that our teaching is meeting the needs of all our pupils.
