Assessment (mini-site)

Assessment @ CCSJ

In 2016 we began to develop our own way of assessing learning and progress.  We re-wrote ‘assessment’ our own way – we’re proud of our results – It’s taken time to quality assure what we’ve done against National Standards and moderate against/with local schools*.  Please click on the links below to find out what we’ve done and why we think its the future for our learners.

Principles of Assessment at CCSJ

Please read the information in the report below to understand how we support your child with our bespoke ‘continuums’ and how you can help  support your child at home.  Alternatively, please come along to one of our termly parents Assessment sessions for a 45min Q & A with Mrs Endean.

Here is an example of our continuums we use to assess, plan for children learning and scaffold learning.

We love that you child is fully engaged in our Assessment procedures; in Y5 and 6 your child is responsible for feeding back to you about their attainment, progress along side the things they have enjoyed and the things that they want to improve.  In this way way we feel that they and you are truly partners in their learning at CCSJ.

Here is an example of the PowerPoint your child will use to report to you. (the leaves on the tree hyperlink to each child page and the CCSJ cloud will get you back to the home page).

*Since Jan 2016 we have lead a Moderation group of 9 local schools for Teacher Assessment in KS1 and KS2. The sessions run 3 times a year and are open to any teacher in any school.  At the end of each session we create a book of work from all schools that ‘showcases’ agreed expected standards.
