We constantly monitor the progress of our children and have an ongoing dialogue with parents. Pupils are assessed half termly. These are shared with parents at termly Parent Evening and the children's attainment and progress is reported in writing annually.
At the end of each Key Stage,(Y2 and Y6), children take national assessments (SATs), which also include aspects of teacher assessment and are externally marked and moderated.
Most schools are inspected by Ofsted every 3 to 5 years. In addition schools receive yearly performance data (ASP) which is collated by the Department of Education. Ofsted have launched the School Data Dashboard, which provides a snapshot of school performance at Key Stages 1 and 2.
Schools also receive a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) for children entitled to free school meals (FSM) in order to help raise their attainment.

- The school’s name, postal address and telephone number, plus a contact name to whom enquiries should be addressed. See our Contact page
