Clophill St Marys CofE lower school


Children's achievements in each lesson are evaluated by class teachers.  This information then informs teacher's termly assessments of the children in their class, in all subject areas, on a termly basis. 

Curriculum Co-ordinators then analyse the attainment and progress of the whole school in their area.  This information informs future teaching and learning.

At the beginning of Reception, all children take part in the Reception Baseline Assessment to determine their starting points - abilities and skills -  when they begin school.  The Reception Baseline Assessment is statutory from September 2021 and we were a pilot school, trialling the baseline before then. For more information about the Reception Baseline, please see the leaflet below:

Children are formally teacher assessed at the end of Reception against the Early Learning Goals:
