Assessment in English

How we Assess Children in English:

Children are assessed against their year group expectations in reading, writing and GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling) through ongoing formative assessment and in end of term summative assessments. Summative assessments include the phonics screening check at the end of year 1; tests of reading age, year group expectations and national end of key stage tests (SATS).

Formative assessments are the daily teacher assessment activities that identify areas of learning that need to be revisited for some pupils, and next steps for learning for the whole cohort. In English, this includes discussion with pupils, listening to them read, and giving feedback on their written work.
