Assessment Without Levels

From this September, the Government has made a huge change in the way that children in schools are to be assessed. This is to tie in with the New National Curriculum, which was brought in on September 1st 2014.

This is a new way of thinking for schools, and assessment will look very different to how it has done for the past 20 years. The aim of this guide is to hopefully give you some clear information about all the changes that are happening in Education across the country, and what that means for the children here at Wyton on the Hill Primary School.

Reporting to parents

At your child’s Parent Consultation Appointment, you will be given a copy of your child’s report for the academic year to date, which is based on the new ‘assessment without levels’ system the school has chosen. The new system was explained at the Head Teacher’s update meetings for parents this term in September and November.

As there will not be sufficient time at the meeting to explain the new system to parents, the school has produced a ‘parents’ guide to reading your child’s report’ along with a screen shot guide which explains how the report is organised and gives a glossary terms used in context.
Please take the time to read these documents before you come for your appointment, both of which are attached and have been sent home in hard copy.

We have also written a guide to Marking at Wyton on the Hill, so that you can see how your child’s class teacher uses marking to support your child’s learning. It is a good idea to arrive early if possible before you child’s / children’s appointments so that you can look at their books and can then talk to your child’s class teacher if you have noted anything for discussion.
