Assessment 

At King Athelstan we:

  • Consider our curriculum's purpose and aims for these subjects, and assess whether pupils are meeting them
  • Assess progress against the key skills set out in the programme of study for each subject
  • Evaluate children’s understanding of vocabulary and their ability to remember key facts and information (‘sticky knowledge’)
  • Use Assessment for Learning (AFL) to support teacher judgments during lessons and at the end of topics using a range of retrieval techniques  
  • Look at pupils’ attitudes and the process that they follow, as well as at the end product that they create
  • Assess children’s higher order thinking skills through their use of Bloom’s Taxonomy success criteria
  • Classify pupils’ progress in all foundation subjects as ‘working towards’, ‘secure’ or ‘working above’ the expected standard for their year group
