Assessment Procedures at Eureka Primary Scho​ol

 

​​

Nationally, from September 2015, we are no longer assessing pupils using levels – the government have called this 'assessing without levels'. In years one to six, the pupils will be assessed against National Standards. National Standards are set by the government and the expectation is that your child, by the end of the academic year, should achieve these in order to be at the required standard for their year group.

 

At Eureka Primary School, on-going and end of term assessment is used to make judgements against achieving National Standards and progress made in years one to six. Assessment is an on-going process that informs planning, teaching and learning on a daily basis.

 

ON-GOING ASSESSMENT

 

  • On-going (formative) assessment happens in the classroom, on a day to day basis, to assess understanding, skills and progress.
  • How well your child is learning informs planning and next steps.
  • Your child will know what they are trying to achieve and how they can improve.

 

  • At Eureka Primary School we use Class Track for formative assessment.
  • Your child will be regularly assessed against their year group National Standard statements in reading, writing and maths.

 

END OF TERM / YEAR ASSESSMENT

 

  • Formal (summative) assessment is completed using standardised tests.
  • PIRA and PUMA tests are used three times a year, near the end of each term.
  • These tests are appropriate for the year group of your child and they assess the coverage of the national curriculum and standards.
  • The tests are progressive as opposed to just end of year assessments.

 

  • Deeper Learning is the assessment system used at Eureka Primary School for inputting and analysing data.
  • Once test are completed and marked, your child will be assessed against the National Standards using all of the on-going data (learning in lessons and their books) as well as their test results.



    At the end of each term, your child will be assessed using the following criteria, with the expectation of Meeting (A) National Standards for their year group, by the end of the academic year:
