Assessing the Curriculum
Pupils are now assessed against year group (also referred to as ‘band’) objectives. For example a child could be working at ‘Band 3’. This means they would be working towards achieving the Year 3 objectives.
Within each band, your child could be assessed as working:
B = beginning the objectives within the band
W = working within the objectives within the band
S = secure in the objectives within the band
If your child is at the upper end of one of these stages, this could be indicated by a ‘+’ symbol.
For example, a child could be working at a 5b+. This would mean that they were beginning to work on the year 5 objectives.
At Elmgrove, we identify children who are working below the expected standard and provide additional support to allow these pupils to reach their potential. This support could include: focused teaching groups, interventions led by teaching assistants, one to one and small group tuition or teacher led booster groups.
We value parental input too. If you would like to know what you could work on at home with your child, please see your child’s class teacher.
