At Shacklewell Primary School we believe that assessment is fundamental in enabling teachers to extend and challenge our children’s learning, supporting them in reaching their full potential.
Our Federation of schools incorporate assessment into their teaching strategies as an integral part of teaching and learning. Assessment gives our teachers a whole school framework within which different levels and perspectives merge. This framework allows us to set educational objectives, inform class planning, design next steps for individual pupils and develop a robust system of school development.
Our assessment systems complement our curriculum, ultimately supporting its development and growth. The types of assessment used in our classrooms give our teachers the information they need to ensure that all of our children succeed.
