Feedback, tests and exams

 

Tests and examinations are an essential part of teaching and learning.  Teachers carry out regular individual and class assessment of pupils.  This helps children learn and master information and material.  But it also helps teachers by providing a constant feedback mechanism.  On-going, regular communication with our parents over testing is key to keeping them informed of their child's progress.  It is also another important way to help home and school work together as a team.

Every Friday

  • Pupils are tested on their spelling, tables and memory verse for the week. The test book is sent home.
  • The weekly report will also be sent home.
  • One subject book will be sent home.

We ask that these books and report card be signed and returned each Monday. 

Subject Tests
Testing is carried out at the end of a five week block of topic study.  This will include Science and Culture topics.  The results will be in your child's test book.

Portfolios
Once a term a portfolio will be sent home instead of the test book.  This will contain a particular set piece of work. Please read and sign this and return on the Monday.

Reports
In Term one a discussion report is handed out at parent interview time.  A full descriptive reports is handed out at the start of Term 3 and followed up with a parent interview a week later.  Another full descriptive report is handed out at the end of Term 4.  

Parent Interviews
These are held in terms one and three.  This is an opportunity for teachers and parents to discuss your child's progress.  Please remember that you do not have to wait until interview time to talk with your child's teacher.

Progress and Achievement Tests (PATs)
We use these standardised tests as a way of assessing your child's reading, vocabulary, listening and compre-hension skills. Other PATs include Maths and Study Skills.  Results of these tests are handed to parents.  PAT tests are held every year from Year 3 onwards.
