"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."

Assessment Coordinator: Mrs Barker.
We analyse assessment data frequently to ensure that children make good progress that matches their potential. Various targets for progress can help this. As well as targets for a child's progress, teachers set targets around what a child needs to learn next:
'Next Steps' - daily marking where teachers note 'stars' (when pupils did well) and 'wish' (how the next piece of work can be even better)
'Personal Targets' - sometimes, children will be given an individual target that a teacher (and often the child) recognises as a particular area to improve (eg to show capitals clearly; to know number bonds to ten); these targets are written on a sticker on exercise books.
