How we assess your child...


September 2014 saw considerable national changes for schools. The new National Curriculum came into effect and together with this, the old ‘level’ system of assessing pupil progress was abolished; schools are now expected to make their own assessment systems and to also articulate them to parents.

The information below will explain how Glen Hills, as a founder member of the Symphony Learning Trust, assess pupil progress.

In the Foundation Stage, the pupils will be assessed as a 1 - working towards the expected standard for the Early Learning Goal - or a 2 - working at the expected standard for the Early Learning Goal - at the end of the Foundation Stage year.

For years 1 to 6, we assess the pupils using our Trust assessment, known as Symphony On Track. This uses statements for reading, writing and maths in each year group which the pupils are assessed against. If a pupil is assessed at the end of the year as attaining the majority of the statements for their year group, they will be assessed as 'Expected' in that particular subject. If a pupil does not attain the majority of statements for their year group, they will be assessed as 'Working Towards the Standard'. If a pupil attains all of the statements for their year group, and the majority of the following year's statements, they will be assessed as 'Greater Depth'. Statutory end of Key Stage assessments (y2 and y6) will take place each year. All of these levels will be reported to parents at the end of the academic year.


Please see an example of the Symphony On Track assessment booklet for y1-6 below.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to pop in to see me.
